Shin’en Multimedia

Since the official announcement of the Nintendo Switch yesterday, several developers have come out and pledged their support to Nintendo’s latest home console. Today, Shin’en Multimedia, developers of games such as FAST Racing NEO and Nano Assault, have done the same and confirmed via Twitter that they are a Switch developer. This doesn’t come as a huge surprise after they recently said some extremely positive things about their relationship with Nintendo in an interview, but it’s nonetheless nice to know that we’ll see their games on Switch as well.


FAST Racing NEO was one of the most acclaimed indie games on Wii U in recent years, and a part of that was certainly its energetic soundtrack. If you can’t get enough of the game’s music, you can now buy the entire 80-minute soundtrack online at this link. The minimum price you’ll have to pay is 5$ – but if you want to support developer Shin’en Multimedia, you can pay more if you want to. The soundtrack is DRM free and available as both MP3 and FLAC files. If you’re undecided, you can listen to a 30 second preview of each track as well.


In a recent interview with, Shin’en Multimedia confirmed that their next project will be with Nintendo. Shin’en Multimedia, creators of FAST Racing Neo, recently confirmed that while their next project is a secret, it will be on a Nintendo console.

The studio was asked what it would like to do after FAST Racing Neo. In response, Shin’en said:

The problem is I can’t talk about it. I’d really like to talk about it, but if I say anything…. let me put it this way: we’re very happy to work with Nintendo, we’ll keep doing it and our next project will be with them. We’re also carrying out new experiments and creating new prototypes, but I can’t talk about this either, because they’re so deep in their initial stage that there would be no point talking about it now.



The retail version of FAST Racing Neo is now available to pre-order on Amazon. The game will cost €24.99 and is currently only available for Europe. It will release September 30, and it includes the main game and its upcoming DLC tracks.


Nintendo announced today that Shin’en Multimedia’s FAST Racing NEO and Image & Form’s SteamWorld Collection (which includes both SteamWorld Heist and SteamWorld Dig) will get a retail release in Europe as part of the “Nintendo eShop Selects” on September 30th.

FAST Racing NEO’s retail release will also contain the eight new courses of the upcoming NEO Future Pack DLC. Those who already own the digital version will also get access to the NEO Future Pack on September 30th.

Similarly, the SteamWorld Collection retail release will also contain the SteamWorld Heist add-on The Outsider, which launches on September 30th as well.
