Nintendo has announced that they will be hosting a new Indie World showcase tomorrow, May 11, 2022, at 7 AM PDT. The event is confirmed to be 20 minutes long, making it quite jam-packed, with no specific games being disclosed at the moment.

The most apparent hope vocal fans have is Hollow Knight Silksong. Does it still exist? The world may never know. Aside from that title, there will assuredly be a vast selection of games appealing to varying crowds. We’ll be sure to update you all on all of the game announcements that occur tomorrow, so keep an eye out on our website and Twitter account.

While not an indie game, a highly anticipated Nintendo Switch title releasing later this year is Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 tells the story of protagonists Noah and Mio contending with a conflict between the nations of Keves, and Agnus. 6 characters will be the crux of the experience, and the broad concept of “life” will be the title’s central theme. Additional seven characters will also be available during specific moments of the journey.

The narrative for the game will tie in elements and plotlines from the future of the prior two mainline games, Xenoblade Chronicles and Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Flutes seem to play an integral role in the title’s premise.  The new trailer reveals characters have a mighty Ouroboros form, which allows them to assume the form of powerful oversized entities in battle.

The summoning of this powerful new form depends on a new Interlink system. If specific conditions are met, characters can combine into this mech, and choosing well when to transform should be key to the more difficult battles. Another system revealed is a class change option, allowing players to customize their parties’ builds further than in previous games.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is releasing for Nintendo Switch on July 29, 2022.
