Nintendo’s last Indie World showcase took place back in March and unveiled a host of new titles – many of which are still yet to be released. Notable announcements were made at the time, including titles such as Baldo, a Studio Ghibli inspired adventure, and Blue Fire, an upcoming 3D platformer set in a mysterious, dark world.
This year has seen Nintendo favour smaller presentations over its usual Direct presentations, which are known for being larger in scale and containing multiple big announcements. The approach has been to release Nintendo Direct Mini showcases that aim in delivering smaller shows with only a handful of announcements.
Last month saw the most recent Nintendo Direct Mini which announced two new Shin Megami Tensei games – a HD remaster of Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne and the newest entry in the series, Shin Megami Tensei V. Both are expected to release in 2021.
In other Nintendo news, The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword listing has been spotted on Amazon, suggesting a HD remake could be coming to the Nintendo Switch some point in the future.
