Nintendo fans should tune in to the upcoming Indie Showcase event later today (December 15).
The Nintendo Indie Direct event will be broadcast live at 5pm GMT UK time on December 15.
“Tune in on 15th December at 18:00 CET to ring in the holidays with a new Indie World Showcase,” reads a Nintendo post.
“The showcase features roughly 15 minutes of updates and new announcements on indie games coming to Nintendo Switch from global partners.
“To watch, check out the Indie World – 15/12/2020 (Nintendo Switch) live stream. Further information about the library of indie titles available for Nintendo Switch can be found at the Indie World Hub on the official Nintendo website.”

It’s unlikely to be a long event, but it should have some interesting announcements and perhaps a few stealth eShop releases.
One game that fans really want to see is Hollow Knight Silksong, which has been missing in action for quite some time.
Hollow Knight Silksong was originally announced all the way back in February 2019.
Most fans assumed it would launch in 2020, although failing a really big surprise, this is looking extremely unlikely.
“Play as Hornet, princess-protector of Hallownest, and adventure through a whole new kingdom ruled by silk and song!” reads the official Hollow Knight Silksong description.
“Captured and brought to this unfamiliar world, Hornet must battle foes and solve mysteries as she ascends on a deadly pilgrimage to the kingdom’s peak.
“Hollow Knight: Silksong is the epic sequel to Hollow Knight, the award winning action-adventure. As the lethal hunter Hornet, journey to all-new lands, discover new powers, battle vast hordes of bugs and beasts and uncover ancient secrets tied to your nature and your past.”
There’s also speculation that Super Meat Boy Forever will make an appearance during the event.
The upcoming platform game will be released on the Epic Game Store later this month.
With the Nintendo Switch the home of all things indie on console, there’s a chance it will be given a Switch release date during the Indie Showcase.
Needless to say, Express Online will update this article with all the big announcements from the event, so check back later for more information.
