After a short reel of quick announcements, a channel for the Switch’s News app – simply called the Indie Channel – was announced. A similar channel (Indie World) already exists for Japan, so it’s great to see a Western version.
‘We have one more announcement before we go’ is the phrase that whet the appetites of many Smash fans watching live towards the end of the showcase. But in fact, popular indie title Into the Breach was announced for the Switch, with the exciting twist being that it launched right after the showcase ended.
