One of the strangest complaints about Nintendo’s marketing strategy for the Switch has been, “Will the eShop be ready on March 3?” Square Enix announced a launch day digital release for I Am Setsuna a month ago, and Tomorrow Corporation followed that up with a similar announcement for World of Goo, Human Resource Machine, and Little Inferno.
Today, Nintendo added three more titles to the Switch’s launch day lineup of digital titles including Yacht Club’s Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove and Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment, as well as Shin’en Multimedia’s FAST RMX:
- FAST RMX (Shin’en Multimedia): Challenge your friends to local split-screen competition or take part in online races against players from all over the world. This lightning-fast anti-gravity racer is exclusive to Nintendo Switch.
- Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment (Yacht Club Games) The latest DLC for the critically acclaimed hit Shovel Knight is a full-featured game starring Specter Knight, one of the enemies from the original game. The massive campaign includes even more content than the last DLC, Plague of Shadows. Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is exclusive to Nintendo Switch for a limited time.
- Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove (Yacht Club Games): For Shovel Knight’s biggest fans, Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove includes the original Shovel Knight game, as well as all previously released DLC – even Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment! Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove will be exclusive to Nintendo Switch for a limited time.
In other Nintendo eShop news, the consolemaker has confirmed that they’re won’t be any Virtual Console titles ready on launch day. But they will host a Nindies Showcase on Tuesday, February 28, at 12:00 noon (Eastern Time) to “celebrate many of these upcoming Nindie creations before launch.” Fans can tune in to the livestream at live.nintendo.com to watch.
