After losing The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ as a launch title earlier this week, the Nintendo Switch‘s launch week became a tad bit thinner in terms of games.

Today, as part of its eShop announcements, Nintendo confirmed three additional Switch launch titles. These include the indie game Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, its Specter or Torment expansion, and Fast RMX. The titles will be available on the Switch’s launch day, March 3.

Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove is developed by Yacht Club Games, and includes the original Shovel Knight, as well as DLC releases Plague of Shadows and Spectre of Torment.  Treasure Trove and Specter of Torment will be exclusive to the Nintendo Switch “for a limited time,” according to Nintendo.

Fast RMX, a “lightning-fast anti-gravity” racing game ala F-Zero and Wipeout, promises some gorgeous visuals delivered at a smooth 60 frames per second at 1080p. The game features local split-screen and online multiplayer, and there will be 30 tracks and 15 futuristic racing machines to choose from. Fast RMX is developed by Shin-en Multimedia and will be exclusive to Nintendo Switch.

Both indie games will join the over 60 games that will be available on the Nintendo Switch eShop from independent studios and developers by the end of the year.


To show how cozy they’ve become with indie devs, Nintendo announced today that it will be hosting a video presentation called “Nindies Showcase” on their official website on Tuesday, February 28 at 9AM PT.
