It might not have been a showcase for first-party Nintendo games, but today’s Indie World Showcase didn’t pull any punches.
In addition to the new announcements, there was a long list of games releasing later today too. Sadly, this also means your bank account might be empty for a little while.
If you missed the showcase, you can watch it in full here.
