Even more footage from Shovel Knight has arrived, this time showing the co-op feature in the main game. See it in action below.

Butterfly: Inchworm Animation II arrived on the North American 3DS eShop last October. Now Flat Black Films has confirmed that the app is coming to Europe on January 26.

Similar to its DSiWare predecessor, Butterfly allows users to make looping animations. Eight customizable brush tools are included, with antialiased and transparent brushes, onionskin, stamp-making, and a built-in particle-system. Creations can also be shared online through an official website.

Another round of footage is online for Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment on Switch. Check out gameplay from the Stranded Ship below.

Nostatic Software brought Quiet, Please! to the North American 3DS eShop earlier this month. The indie developer is following up on that with Candy, Please!, which is slated for next Thursday. The game will cost $1.99.

Yet another indie developer is cancelling plans for Wii U in favor of a Switch version. Today, Team Cherry announced that Hollow Knight is no longer coming to Nintendo’s current console, but it will be on Switch instead.

Hollow Knight actually isn’t too far away from hitting Switch. The team intends to release it “not too long” after Switch launches.

Team Cherry wrote in a blog pospt:

“We’ve had a long conversation with Nintendo and given their recent reveals, we can now announce: Hollow Knight is making the switch to Nintendo’s new portable/home/hybrid platform!

That’s both sad and happy news for us. Though we can confirm the Switch as a release platform, we also have to confirm that Hollow Knight will no longer make its way to the Wii U. That’s not a step we’ve taken lightly. Our Wii U release has recently been hampered by several technical challenges and though we’d love to see Hollow Knight on our favourite console, we feel the quality difference would end up such that Wii U players will be experiencing a lesser version of the game.

We’re aiming to release the Switch version of Hollow Knight not too long after the platform’s launch.”


Zoink, developer of Stick it to the Man, is already confirmed to be a Switch developer. So it’s interesting then that the studio posted a video today of Zombie Vikings running on Switch.

Here’s a look:

Zombie Vikings was originally planned for Wii U, but was eventually scrapped. Could we end up seeing it on Switch instead?


In an interview with Nintendo Life, The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup creator Chris Seaver of Gory Detail has stated that development of the Wii U version of the puzzle platformer has stopped for now. Instead, the focus lies on the PC version at the moment – however, as soon as Gory Detail get their hands on a Switch developer kit, they will work on porting the game to Nintendo’s newest system. Additionally, Seaver stated that a release of the 3DS version is “dependent on resources and time issues”.

Here are his statements in full:

“We’re looking to have everything done on the PC side by September or so, the Nintendo Switch side of things depends on when dev kits become available. As you can imagine there’s a lot of people wanting them and I can’t imagine little indies like us are too high on the list. We’ll see.

I’d pretty much back-burnered the Wii U in terms of dev for a while now because of the cost to develop on something that was increasingly seen as a dead end system. Along comes the Switch, hopefully reinvigorating Nintendo’s home console market. It all dovetails nicely. Switch is pretty much a defo, just not sure when. 3DS is dependent on resources and time issues but currently a yes. Wii U, nah.”


Indie developer Vertex Pop has announced a new Switch game Graceful Explosion Machine, a “dazzlingly intense shoot-em-up”.

We have the following overview:

“Skillfully pilot the advanced Graceful Explosion Machine (GEM) fighter while blasting swarms of crystalline enemies with your ludicrously overpowered quad-weapon array! Lost in deep space, you’ll shoot, dash and combo your way through jewel-hued alien worlds, fighting to find a way home.”

Graceful Explosion Machine will release during Switch’s launch window. You can expect the game on the eShop sometime during spring.

Nintendo of America indie game manager Kirk Scott said of the news:

“Graceful Explosion Machine fits perfectly as a premiere indie game in our launch window lineup. It reflects the diversity and breadth of the kinds of top-notch games we’re looking for on the Nintendo Switch system.”

Watch a trailer for Graceful Explosion Machine below:


We have another round of news about Shovel Knight. First, Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove and Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment will launch first on Switch during the system’s launch window for $24.99 and $9.99 respectively. That would indicate today’s earlier news of an April launch applies to Wii U and 3DS instead of Switch.

Specter of Torment and Shovel Knight co-op will be playable on Switch for the first time at PAX South later this month.

Yacht Club Games is also announcing today that Shovel Knight Sound Test Mode is on the way. It’ll come to all versions of the game as a free update.
