Nintendo Switch Nindies Showcase Coming February 28
Many Nintendo fans are eager for the arrival of the Nintendo Switch as well as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and other games at the end of this week. With the Switch releasing this week, Nintendo has decided to have a showcase to show off some of the upcoming Nindie games coming to Nintendo Switch, and hopefully some release dates for those games. We can only hope we can see games like the upcoming Yooka-Laylee shown off in this presentation, since it was previously moved from Wii U to Switch. Keep reading on for more Nindie information before the Switch launch.
Nintendo has also announced that Yacht Club Games’ Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment and Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, as well as Shin’en Multimedia’s FAST RMX will all be launch Nindie titles for the Nintendo Switch on March 3. Additional info was given about the Nintendo Switch’s eShop including news on Virtual Console, shared wallets, a news feature, and a system update.
After getting your Nintendo Switch and connecting online, you will be able to link your NNID and Nintendo Account to your Switch so that you can access a shared wallet on the eShop, which will be useful if you have leftover money on other Nintendo devices. There will unfortunately be no Virtual Console at launch, but more information on it will be given in the future. One of the new shortcuts on the Switch’s home menu will be a news feature area, where you can check out the latest Nintendo Switch news on upcoming features and games. Finally, to be able to access the eShop at all, there will be a required day one update which will add all the online features to Nintendo Switch. So if you’ll want to be able to check out the eShop on your Switch, make sure to update your Nintendo Switch to the latest version.
Will you be getting a Nintendo Switch and any of the Switch Nindie games this week? Be sure to catch the Nintendo Switch Nindie Showcase tomorrow at 9am PT (12 noon EST) on the website and get your Nintendo Switch on Friday, March 3. We will be covering the Nindie Showcase tomorrow, so stay tuned for that as well. Check out Nintendo’s press release about all of this down below.
