If you want to keep tabs on all the indie games coming to Nintendo Switch, Nintendo has you covered. Revealed in the Nintendo Switch Nindies Showcase, the development team is launching a brand new channel for the handheld platform with the sole intention of spotlighting smaller games.

For those of you like myself that check the News section of Nintendo Switch UI, you are able to add various channels to get sporadic updates. According to the announcment, this new Indie Channel will be used as a place to host Q&A’s, interviews, surprise reveals, and the odd announcement.

And if anything is made obvious by today’s Showcase, it’s that Nintendo isn’t slouching on grabbing the indie market. Aside from a few exclusives, Nintendo spent a lot of time showcasing games like Hyper Light Drifter and Transistor. They were even able to shock us here at DualShockers with the announcement of Into the Breach.

The Nintendo Switch Indies News Channel is available now, for everyone looking for the latest announcements.
