If true, they actually managed to snipe Mineko's Night Market.

Following an extended stint in Steam's Early Access program, the other missing game from the August 2018 Nindie Showcase appears to finally have a launch window.

Multiplayer platformer King of the Hat, which was announced for an "early 2019" release in a presentation that aired on August 28, 2018, has been spotted on the eShop with a launch date of August 24 - five years (less four days) since its original unveil.

There were two games left to release from the presentation, which featured reveals of Switch versions of Bastion and Transistor, the debut of Untitled Goose Game, and an Into the Breach shadow drop: King of the Hat and Mineko's Night Market, which was confirmed for a September 26 release in this past April's Indie World.

Oh yeah.... I remember the trailer for that. I'd forgotten all about that game until reading this. Congrats to both those games still releasing before Metroid Prime 4.  ;)

So, if those both get released within the next couple months, what is the next indie type game that has been revealed yet unreleased after a long time? Hollow Knight 2? Party Animals?
