Nintendo Switch owners will get a fresh batch of cute, cozy, and creative game announcements on Wednesday, April 19.

April’s Indie World livestream — the indie game equivalent of a Nintendo Direct — will be streamed on Nintendo’s YouTube and Twitch channels, starting at 9 a.m. PDT/12 p.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 reveals, announcements, and updates on indie games for Nintendo Switch” from unannounced independent game developers. Fans can probably count on a handful of stealth game releases after the Indie World event concludes; Nintendo has a history of surprise post-livestream launches.

The most recent Indie World presentation dropped in November 2022. That’s where Nintendo and indie game studios revealed Switch versions of games like Inscryption, A Space for the Unbound, Rogue Legacy 2, Have a Nice Death, and Venba.
