FAST RMX and Shovel Knight Join the Switch Launch Day

Yesterday, more information was confirmed by two indie developers, Yacht Club Games and Shin’en. Yacht Club Game had confirmed that Shovel Knight Specter of Torment, as well as Shovel Knight Treasure Trove, will be available on March 3rd, 2017. Shovel Knight Treasure Trove will cost $24.99 and include the Shovel of Hope (original campaign), Plague of Shadows, and Specter of Torment campaigns. Shovel Knight has been released on virtually every platform this generation and for good reason. This game is a sublime 2D platforming experience that nails the feels of 8-bit games like Ninja Gaiden, Mega Man 2, and Ducktales. If for some reason you’ve still missed this game, the Switch sounds like another great way to experience it.

Shin’en has also been able to grace their upcoming title, FAST RMX, to the Nintendo Switch for March 3rd, 2017 as well. While the price is still unknown, their previous version released on the Wii U was $14.99. However, FAST RMX has almost double the tracks, more vehicles and visual upgrades, it’s not too hard to guess that this may go for about $19.99 possibly. That being said, this writer here absolutely loved FAST Racing Neo for the Wii U and with enhancements and additions coming to FAST RMX, this is no doubt one launch title everyone needs to give a look. Nintendo still hasn’t put out a new F-Zero game since F-Zero GX (which was the best installment in the series), so this game will certainly fill that insane speed racing void. Maybe Shin’en will be approached by Nintendo to handle a new F-Zero seeing the talent this studio has…
