Nintendo will celebrate this week a new Indie World presentation, focused on indie games for Nintendo Switch. It will be tomorrow, Wednesday, April 14, at 18:00 CET (Spanish peninsular time), or what is the same, exactly 24 hours after its announcement.
The broadcast will last about 20 minutes, the usual in this class of presentations. They have not given any more details about their content, which tend to be around a dozen games, many of them conversions to Switch of existing indie games, and in other cases completely new games.

The last Indie World presentation was on December 15, 2020. There are usually three Indie World presentations a year: in spring (March-April), in summer (usually August) and in winter (December). At that presentation we saw Spelunky 1 and 2, Cyber Shadow, Alba: A Mediterranean Adventure, Among Us and a couple of cat games.
With each new Indie World presentation, we go back to the same old thing: will it finally be announced? Hollow Knight Silksong? It’s one of the most anticipated games of 2021, and it will be a temporary exclusive on Nintendo Switch consoles, so it would make sense for it to appear in an Indie World … but it has dodged them all so far.
The truth is that it is better not to worry too much about it and be surprised: the Indie World are celebrations of how diverse and unexpected the indie scene is. In addition, Nintendo has confirmed its presence at E3 2021, so in two months we will probably have a new Nintendo Direct, with information on the first party games that we all look forward to.
Remember: the Indie World presentation will air on Wednesday, April 14 at 18:00 CET.
