Switch indies footage roundup

Videos are coming in showing a variety of indie titles for Switch on display at GDC this week. We’re starting out with Gonner, Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment, and Blaster Master Zero, but more may be added throughout the day.

Two more trailers are now online for upcoming indie games on Switch. Following yesterday’s announcement, find videos for Unbox: Newbie’s Adventure and Pocket Rumble below.

Yacht Club Games shared the file size for Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove on Switch a few days ago. Adding to that, the studio revealed the file size for Specter of Torment just now. The download will take up 145 MB, so it’s similar to Treasure Trove’s 147 MB.

Today, Yacht Club Games introduced new amiibo functionality coming to Shovel Knight with the game’s new Specter of Torment update.

Using the figure, players can unlock the Fairy of Shovelry. Speak to Madame Meeber in the Village, Potionarium, and Tower of Fate and scan the amiibo to do so.

As for what the fairy does, Yacht Club says:

“The Fairy of Shovelry will accompany Shovel Knight, Plague Knight, or even Specter Knight on their respective adventures! Whether the little scamp is digging for treasure, trying to battle enemies, or cheering along with your victories, he is guaranteed to be delightful. Don’t worry, he won’t get in your way or mess with your gameplay! But things sure are less lonely with the Fairy of Shovelry around!”

Another file size is in for a Switch eShop game. FAST RMX, Shin’en’s racer, will be 900 MB.

Other information from Shin’en is below:

File Size

As always we used all tricks to keep the file size super small without sacrificing any quality.
The file size of FAST RMX will therefore only be ~900 Megabytes! So anyone can download it really ‘FAST’ to their internal memory.

Despite the small size the game is full packed of content, with an overview below:

– 10 Cups
– 15 Vehicles
– 30 Individual tracks
– 47 Audio Tracks

Surround Sound

When playing in console mode on a 5.1 surround set you can hear other drivers coming from behind or passing by. Of course also most other actions have 3D sounds associated.

When playing in handheld mode we down-mix to stereo but still have 3D information processed (distance, panning, doppler effect..)

Touch Screen

All buttons in the menus can also be operated by touch! This makes it a breeze to select any items when playing in handheld mode.

De Mambo set for Switch

Posted on 3 weeks ago by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 0 comments | 0 Likes

The Dangerous Kitchen is bringing its “spicy, single-screen action platformer” to Switch. The game was originally funded back in 2015, and is now confirmed for Nintendo’s console.

Here’s a trailer:

De Mambo is coming to Japan in Q2 this year. Information regarding a North American release should follow later.

Polygon has posted a new video showing seven minutes of gameplay from Celeste running on Switch. Get a look at the new game from TowerFall’s creator below.

Following today’s announcement of SteamWorld Dig 2, Image & Form issued a blog post with a brief Q&A. On top of that, a new episode of The Engine Room went live discussing how SteamWorld Quest is actually this game. We’ve posted it all below.

For which platforms will it be released?
SteamWorld Dig 2 will debut on Nintendo Switch. Stay tuned for more platform announcements in the near future. We’re exploring the possibilities of a multiplatform release on day one. Stay tuned!

What was “SteamWorld Quest” and “SteamWorld Project 2017?”?
There’s a really fun connection between SteamWorld Quest/SteamWorld Project 2017 and SteamWorld Dig 2. Get the full story behind it in the latest Engine Room episode on YouTube.

Will the sequel be longer than the original SteamWorld Dig?
Sure thing! It’s a meaty exploration platformer with a wide variety of upgrades and worlds to discover. Expect a vivid underworld in which you’ll encounter all kinds of enemies, treasures and traps. We’ll reveal more details in the coming months!

Where’s Rusty?!
We have not forgotten about Rusty. He’s very important to the events unfolding in SteamWorld Dig 2. We don’t want to spoil anything this early, but rest assured knowing he’s present in the game.
