Nindies Showcase Video: 28th February on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Nintendo has announced it will host a Nindies Showcase video on Tuesday, 28th February in order to show off what titles are due to land on the Nintendo Switch eShop from launch onwards. Tomorrow Corporation has already confirmed it's bringing World of Goo, Little Inferno and Human Resource Machine to the system, and three launch games mentioned by Nintendo are Shin'en Games' FAST RMX and two versions of Shovel Knight.

The launch of the Nintendo Switch console is rapidly approaching on 3rd March, and Nintendo of Europe can confirm that Nintendo eShop will be available at launch, complete with a line-up of downloadable indie games. To celebrate many of these upcoming "Nindie" creations before launch, Nintendo of Europe will publish a localised version of Nintendo of America's Nindies Showcase video presentation on Tuesday, 28th February, at 17:30 GMT. The video can be viewed over at: http://www.nintendo.co.uk at that time.

This year, the Nintendo eShop will be home to more than 60 Nindie games, in addition to digital versions of packaged games, DLC, and more. Three Nindie games that are planned to launch in Europe at the same time as the console on 3rd March are:

- FAST RMX from Shin'en Multimedia: This lightning-fast anti-gravity racer is exclusive to Nintendo Switch.

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment from Yacht Club Games: The latest campaign from the critically acclaimed hit Shovel Knight is a full-featured game starring Specter Knight, one of the enemies from the original game. The massive prequel campaign includes even more content than the last campaign update, Plague of Shadows. Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is exclusive to Nintendo Switch for a limited time.

- Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove from Yacht Club Games: For both new knights and Shovel Knight's biggest fans, Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove includes the original Shovel Knight game, as well as all previously released campaign updates - even Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment! Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove will be exclusive to Nintendo Switch for a limited time.


 
Some additional news about the launch of Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch includes:

- People who already have funds in their accounts on a Nintendo 3DS family system and/or Wii U can access them using a shared wallet that works on Nintendo Switch, as well. Once they link their Nintendo Network ID and Nintendo Account and then their Nintendo Account to their Nintendo Switch console, this functionality becomes possible.

- Virtual Console games will not be available on Nintendo Switch at launch. More information on this will be shared in the future.

- A News feature will offer updates about the latest additions to Nintendo eShop, as well as providing information about upcoming games and other updates from Nintendo.

- To access Nintendo eShop, a system update is required that will be available on launch day. The system update downloads in the background, is designed to install quickly, and doesn't disrupt gameplay.
