Yacht Club may consider physical version of Shovel Knight for Switch after finishing King Knight’s campaign
Posted on 2 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 10 Comments
Shovel Knight is available physically on Wii U and 3DS. On Switch though, the game will only be sold on the eShop – at least at launch.
Yacht Club Games isn’t against a physical version of Shovel Knight for Switch. Actually, the studio told one fan on Twitter that it might be considered after work wraps up on King Knight’s campaign.
The tweet is as follows:
@ChrisArrowood98 Digital only at this time. We might try for a physical release once King Knight's campaign is complete.

Would you prefer to buy a physical version of Shovel Knight for Switch, or do you not mind settling for a digital copy?

Hamster on bringing Arcade Archives to Switch, more games planned
Posted on 2 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 51 Comments
This week, Famitsu provides yet another feature on Switch. The magazine interviews Satoshi Hamada from Hamster about the company’s Arcade Archives plans and more.
Hamster received requests from fans to bring the Arcade Archive series to portable devices. Since Switch acts as a handheld in addition to a console, they thought this would fulfill these wishes.
The Arcade Archive series has a feature to rotate the screen to play vertically-displayed arcade games. With Switch, you can easily stand the display vertically, so he think it’ll well fit for the system.

Tomorrow Corporation’s games not guaranteed for Switch launch next week
Posted on 2 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 4 Comments
Tomorrow Corporation previously announced three eShop releases for Switch launch. World of Goo, Little Inferno, and Human Resource Machine were all previously on track for March 3. However, there could be a bump in the road.
True to his lighthearted nature, Tomorrow Corporation’s Kyle Gabler told Polygon the following when asked if the company is still on board for Swich’s launch:
“We hope we can make it! We’re still just 3 people, trying to launch 3 games on March 3rd — and it’s going to be close. For reference, the Zelda team has approximately 2.9 billion people and a really fast horse, but we’re close behind. Save some champagne for us, Nintendo, we’re going to be bloody and tired and maybe not all 3 of us will make it alive, but we’re going to get there, and the games will be stunning!”
For Nintendo’s part, they’re only saying the following:
“In addition to Fast RMX, Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment and Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, day-one digital titles on the eShop will include The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, 1-2-Switch, Super Bomberman R and Just Dance 2017.”
By the way, those hoping that previous purchases of Tomorrow Corporation’s games from older Nintendo systems can’t be transferred in any way. “We cannot comment on the content of each game, but we have nothing to announce regarding past purchases carrying over,” Nintendo said.
