Mr. Shifty’s patch on Switch isn’t too far off. According to tinyBuild CEO Alex Nichiporchik, it will be submitted for Nintendo approval soon. The entire process is expected to take about two weeks.

Nichiporchik said:

“Just wanted to give everyone a heads-up that we were going to submit the Mr. Shifty patch this week, but due to next week being Gold Week, it wouldn’t matter as there are delays with submissions due to it. So we expect to submit the patch by end of week, and release the week after next. So in 2 weeks. It’s looking pretty good.”

The patch prepared for Mr. Shifty should mainly improve performance. It should improve issues with frame rate drops that players have been experiencing.

Space Dave!, a follow-up of sorts to Woah Dave!, was announced for Wii U and 3DS a couple of years ago. Today, publisher Choice Provisions confirmed that a Switch version is happening.

The company wrote on Twitter:

It’s unclear if the Wii U version is still happening at this point. On the bright side, it looks like Space Dave! isn’t too far off.


The Japanese Switch eShop has been updated with a bit of an under-the-radar release. From Silver Star Japan, Ginsei Shogi: Kyoutendo Toufuu Raijin can now be purchased for 1,200 yen (349MB of free space needed).

Ginsei Shogi: Kyoutendo Toufuu Raijin isn’t entirely new to Switch. The shogi board game has appeared on other platforms in the past, including Wii U.

Here’s a trailer for the Switch version in any case:

During a live stream hosted earlier today, Inti Creates showed off upcoming Blaster Master Zero DLC with a first look at Gunvolt. We’ve posted the recording below.

NBA Playgrounds arrives on Switch very soon. According to a listing on the European eShop, the game launches on May 9. We expect it to hit North America at around the same time – if not the same day.

We have these new screenshots from NBA Playgrounds:

When the game’s North American date is confirmed, we’ll let you know.

Thanks to Ben for the tip.

ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove still has a long ways to go until it’s finished. Development itself is coming to a close, but the team needs to deal with “a lot of porting and debugging”. As of now, it’s targeted for the fall.

Humanature Studios passed along the release window as part of a new Kickstarter update today. It was also accompanied by these screenshots:
