Nintendo Switch System Update Required For Nintendo eShop Access

According to WWG, retailers Target and Best Buy have now confirmed that they will have some amount of units available at their stores for walk-in shoppers on launch day or via midnight release events.

Additionally, Tabata went on to say that he believes the Switch is a like a transitional device which will lead to cloud gaming becoming more mainstream. The website for the game has been launched just a few hours ago and the game is touchscreen only. In case you're going fork out upwards of $450 for a glossy new console, the minimum you can request is something to play on it.

Snipperclips will be available on the eShop (exclusively) on the Nintendo Switch. Released a year ago for iOS and Android, rhythm game Voez is now a Japanese Switch launch title, and it requires a touch screen to play. The Nintendo Minute folks played it for their show around a week ago, so check that out.

Voez mixes an anime style story with rhythm gameplay. Clearly Nintendo is taking a gamble, but it's in it for the long game. Before the hybrid console's official arrival, Nintendo recently announced that more games have been added to its launch lineup.

"Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove" is developed by Yacht Club Games, and is a retro-inspired side-scrolling video game where players use a shovel to attack their enemies. So the fact that Switch is both at the same time is really fascinating to me. In addition we also know that the game will be able to run at 60 FPS and that the new game mode, Hero Mode. It features a local spilt-screen and an online multiplayer.
