Nintendo's Summer Nindie Showcase wasn't short of announcements, but it naturally didn't cover everything coming to the Switch eShop. One game that Nintendo of America seems to be confirming - which is a new one that wasn't even in the European sizzle reel - is Worms W.M.D.

At the time of publication this hasn't been announced, but as spotted around the web - reader Shani highlighted it from Nintendo Everything - it's a game with some screenshot assets on Nintendo's press site. To clarify, in the Nintendo of America press area - alongside the standard press release - is a series of asset packs. Most of these are related to games seen in the Showcase, along with a few other titles at PAX West like Dandara and Dimension Drive. Sure enough, we took a look and there's a folder for Worms W.M.D that has five screenshots and some logo assets (the latter of which seemingly removed).

Is it 100% proof that Worms W.M.D is coming to the Switch? We wouldn't go that far, as it could be a peculiar admin error by a staffer (or outsourced agency) managing Nintendo's press site. For those that prefer to be optimistic, publisher Team17 is gradually getting more active on Switch and Nintendo could hold an announcement or two back for the upcoming Nindies@Night event.

Time will tell. It'd be a welcome release in any case, as it's proven popular since its original launch on other platforms in Summer 2016.
