Microsoft is seemingly taking a leaf out of Nintendo's book with the announcement of [email protected] Game Pass, a new stream dedicated to highlighting indie games coming to Xbox Game Pass.

The first episode is scheduled to be broadcast on Tuesday, March 26 at 4.00pm UK time, and can be viewed via the Xbox YouTube channel. It pretty much sounds like Microsoft's answer to the Big N's Nindies showcase.

In addition to new game announcements, Microsoft confirmed that we can expect the stream to dive into Afterparty, Void Bastards and Supermarket Shriek, plus other previously revealed titles.

'In addition to new game announcements, we’ll also share a visit to Night School Studio, the creative team behind the hit game Oxenfree, for a behind-the-scenes look at their upcoming game Afterparty,' says Microsoft.

Microsoft's not the only one following in Ninty's footsteps. Sony is also hosting a new event of its own, State of Play, which will dive into the latest PS4 and PSVR happenings.

Carry on the conversation on the VideoGamer forums!
