Indie World is the name of Nintendo’s next Direct-style presentation.
Just ahead of Gamescom 2019 next week, Nintendo has today announced it’ll be having another Direct next week prior to the show.
Rather than using the “Direct” name for this live stream, Nintendo is referring to this presentation as “Indie World.” The stream will focus entirely on upcoming indie games that are planned to come to Switch. This will take place on Monday, August 19 at 6am PST/9am EST and will last approximately 20 minutes.
This is nothing new for Nintendo when it comes to what the publisher typically does annually. In case you don’t remember, Nintendo usually holds a new Direct of sorts focused on indie games each year prior to PAX West. While it seems as though they’re decided to hold this stream about a week in advance this time around (PAX West takes place the last week of August) it seems they’re still holding true to the typical plans.
We’ll, of course, be covering this stream and all of the other major news that comes about next week during Gamescom. If you can’t watch this stream or any others taking place next Monday, just keep checking in here at DualShockers.
