On × offline this year! "BitSummit THE 8th BIT", japan's largest indie game festival, will be held!

今年はオン×オフラインで!日本最大級のインディーゲームの祭典「BitSummit THE 8th BIT」開催決定!

The world of indie games offers unlimited possibilities.
Indie World 2021.4.15" was recently broadcast to introduce indie games that will be released on Nintendo Switch, and many fascinating indie games were announced. There are so many titles that I want to play, which makes me scream with joy.
I am sure that I am not the only one who has the image that most indie games are made by overseas makers.
In fact, the percentage of indie games released by overseas makers is quite high, and in terms of numbers, I have the impression that there are only a few titles by Japanese makers.
However! The quality of indie games made by Japanese makers is extremely high, and it is still fresh in our minds that "Amanohono Sakunahime" became an unprecedented hit in 2020.
The largest scale festival "BitSummit THE 8th BIT" will be held to bring together such fascinating Japanese indie games !
