Switch eShop

During the last Nindies Showcase, SteamWorld Dig 2 devs Image & Form announced their latest game and, among other things, they specified that this new iteration will use Switch’s HD Rumble feature.

Nothing more was said about it until now. In a recent interview posted on the official Nintendo UK site, Julius Guldblog, Community Manager at Image & Form, talked more about how exactly are they planning to implement HD Rumble when playing SteamWorld Dig 2:

“I quite like what we’ve been able to pull off with HD Rumble. One thing is recreating the sensation of digging into certain materials. There’s so many cool things you can do. HD rumble will be a fabulous feature of SteamWorld Dig 2.”

He hints that we’ll be able to feel with our Joy-Con different materials when digging them, but that’s probably just an example and there will be more uses for this feature.

Pocket Rumble

Pocket Rumble’s launch may not be too far off. The game has received a classification from PEGI, indicating that a release could be just on the horizon.

Originally, Pocket Rumble was supposed to hit the eShop sometime in March. That didn’t happen, and Cardboard Robot Games has yet to share a final date. One of Pocket Rumble’s developers did recently suggest that it will be arriving in the near future.


It looks like TumbleSeed will see a release in Japan on May 2, the same date it releases in Europe and North America. It will be in English only, with no Japanese text, and be priced at ¥1,600.


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.
