No, it's not yet time for a real Nintendo Direct. One of those where you expect the latest on the Zelda Breath of The Wild sequel, or that the much talked about 3D Mario collection is finally announced. Nintendo, almost a month after Direct Mini in July, returns to break the silence, and does it again with an event of lesser caliber. As is now the tradition of the Japanese company, the announcement came at the last second: tomorrow, August 18, at 6 pm a new Indie World will be broadcast. That is an appointment in which indie games will be shown that will enrich the already large Nintendo Switch catalog.
The next #IndieWorld is just around the corner! Tune in at 6pm tomorrow for around 20 minutes of information on indie titles coming to #NintendoSwitch.

The Nintendo hybrid is a platform with a particular feeling for indie titles, which are now many and of great value: the ability to play them anywhere is an added value. So well, fine, but after the rumor of the traditional June Direct canceled – just like the E3 with which it coincided – has turned into reality, Nintendo's silence is becoming deafening.
The hope, and the conviction, is that between the end of August and the beginning of September the time may finally come for a Direct Maxi – and no longer Mini – capable of filling the Switch lineup from here until Christmas, and feeding the fantasies for next year. . Otherwise there is the risk that minor events such as tomorrow and next month, instead of soothing the discontent of the fans and putting a patch on the void, increase it and highlight it.
