Japan’s indie game festival is just around the corner, and here’s what we know so far!
For those who don’t know, BitSummit is an indie game festival mainly for Japanese indie game developers. We at myPotatoGames cannot get enough of our beloved Indies, so we are quite excited to see what’s in store at BitSummit 2019, or BitSummit 7 Spirits. This is the seventh (obviously) running of BitSummit, and should be a rather huge event, as BitSummit has been growing since it’s inception. There will be many new games featured by Japanese indie devs that will even be playable.
A bit more about BitSummit…
This event will be so large, in fact, that Nintendo themselves will have a booth. While Nintendo is not an indie company, they have recently made it their business to support indie devs in creating games for their platform. At this booth, Nintendo has already revealed that they intend to feature such awesome Indies as Cuphead, Untitled Goose Game, and Slay the Spire. Seeing as how Cuphead (more info here) and Untitled Goose Game (more info here) are already on out Potato radar, we will be sure to keep an eye on what’s happening at this years BitSummit.
The event will be held on June 1st. and 2nd., and will run from 10:00am to 5:00pm. This festival will be held at Kyoto’s Miyako Messe convention center, so if you are in Japan, or plan to be in the near future, this is one gaming event that you’re not going to want to miss. However, if you’d like to view it without traveling internationally, keep an eye out for BitSummit Roadshow, the virtual satellite stream of the event.
