If you plan on tuning into the event live, we’ve rounded up all the information you need to know about it beforehand.

When is the November 2023 Indie World Showcase

Nintendo confirmed that the next Indie World Showcase will begin at 9 a.m. PT on Tuesday, November 14. Nintendo says the presentation will only take about 20 minutes, so you’ll only need to take a little bit of time out of your morning to watch it.

Like most Nintendo presentations, the company will livestream this new Indie World Showcase across its official YouTube and Twitch channels. We’ve embedded the YouTube version of the showcase above so you can tune into the whole presentation right from this page.

What to expect from the November 2023 Indie World Showcase

The official announcement tweet and press release for November 2023’s Indie World Showcase simply states that it will feature “new announcements and updates on indie games coming to Nintendo Switch.” In terms of previously featured Indie World games that still aren’t out, titles like Animal Well, Rift of the NecroDancer, and Pepper Grinder come to mind.

There are also plenty of memes on social media about Hollow Knight: Silksong showing up during the event; it’s a game people have wanted to see in one of these showcases for years, but it has never shown up. Ultimately, Indie World Showcases are tough to predict because they are typically curated roundups of intriguing indie games that most people don’t know about. You’ll have a better time watching November 2023’s Indie World Showcase if you go in with low expectations and just look forward to seeing some impressive indies you weren’t aware of before.

The February 2024 Pokémon Presents showcase will air on The Official Pokémon YouTube Channel. We've embeded it in this article so you can watch the presentation right from this page.
What to expect from the February 2024 Pokémon Presents
The official description for the February 2024 Pokémon Presents simply states it will contain "exciting Pokémon news in celebration of Pokemon Day 2024." That's incredibly vague, and there aren't any announced, but yet unreleased Pokémon games, apps, or expansions right now. As such, don't be surprised if The Pokémon Company announces some new games here. Leakers claim that these new games could be set in the Johto or Unova regions. I guess we'll just have to tune in and see what The Pokémon Company has in store for us.

Nintendo Direct Partner Showcase: how to watch and what to expect

After lots of rumors (and a lot of educated guessing), Nintendo will finally give players a new Direct presentation this week -- just as it does almost every February. This time, however, we aren't getting a full-scale Direct bursting with first-party news. Instead, Nintendo will host a Partner Showcase that will focus on third-party games. While that would usually be a bit underwhelming, its notable considering that Xbox just announced that four of its games are headed to other platforms.

As such, the 25-minute showcase is one you probably won't want to miss. It's sure to give us a broader picture of what the last leg of the Nintendo Switch's life span will look like. Here's everything we know about the show and how you can watch it.
When is the Nintendo Direct Partner Showcase?
The Partner Showcase will take place at 6 a.m. PT. on Wednesday, February 21. Nintendo notes that it's a 25-minute showcase. It will launch as an on-demand video rather than a traditional livestream, so the stakes are a bit low here. Even so, you'll probably want to tune in right at 6 a.m. to see what Nintendo has in store.
How to watch the Nintendo Direct Partner Showcase?
Nintendo's on-demand video will debut exclusively on its YouTube channel. There's no placeholder video live for it at the moment, so it will likely be uploaded right at 6 a.m PT. Keep an eye on Nintendo's channel that morning so you don't miss it.
