Nintendo Switch owners will get a fresh batch of game announcements on Wednesday, May 11, during a new Indie World livestream.

May’s Indie World showcase — the indie game equivalent of a Nintendo Direct — will be streamed on Nintendo’s YouTube and Twitch channels, starting at 7 a.m. PDT/10 a.m. EDT on Wednesday. You can watch Nintendo’s new indie showcase in the embedded video above.

Nintendo says viewers can expect “roughly 20 minutes of information on upcoming games headed to Nintendo Switch” from independent game developers. Fans can also likely expect stealth game releases after the Indie World event concludes, based on Nintendo’s history of surprise launches.

Nintendo’s most recent Indie World stream from December highlighted games like Chicory: A Colorful Tale, Omocat’s role-playing game Omori, and Sea of Stars, the next game from the developers behind The Messenger. There’s no advance word on what to expect from Wednesday’s Indie World update, but we’ll keep our fingers crossed for Hollow Knight: Silksong, once again.
