Nintendo Hosting a Nindies Showcase Before Switch Launch

While the Virtual Console won’t be ready to go on launch day for the Switch, Nintendo has confirmed that the eShop will be up and running with a couple Nindies available for players to check out. The two Nindie titles currently confirmed for the Switch’s launch on March 3 includes FAST RMX and Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, which will be a limited time exclusive to the Nintendo Switch along side the Specter of Torment DLC. On February 28 Nintendo will be sharing even more information on upcoming games by hosting a live showcase featuring a variety of the Nindie titles coming to the Switch this year. Players who link their Nintendo accounts to the Switch will have access to any funds left in their wallet from other Nintendo systems, but there will be a small update needed before the eshop is accessible.

Nintendo’s live showcase will be streamed through their official site so be sure to stay tuned at 9AM PST on February 28 and check back for even more information as it comes out.
