Shacknews Dump - April 16, 2021

It's been a week of Nintendo indies, Resident Evil reveals, and plenty of other hearty gaming news and we're unpacking it on the Shacknews Dump!


It’s another fine Friday following a filled week of delightful gaming news. Between Nintendo and Capcom, we already have enough to talk about, but you know we won’t stop there, so get ready for another power-packed Shacknews Dump!

On this April 16 edition of the Shacknews Dump, we talk about a ton of reveals that took place this week. Nintendo Indie World was a highlight, showing off indie games coming to the Nintendo Switch. There were even a few big surprises in there.

Internet crush Lady Dimitrescu was, of course, also abundantly present.
