Also, feel free to load up on eShop cards now.

The Switch will have major indie love on opening day.

Nintendo has confirmed in a press statement that both Shin'en Multimedia's FAST RMX and Yacht Club Games's Shovel Knight will launch with the system in North America on March 3. Shovel Knight will include the Treasure Trove collection, as well as the single release Spector of Torment. More information on the games will be given next Tuesday at noon Eastern / 9 am Pacific with a special "Nindies Showcase" video.

The same statement also confirmed that existing eShop balances will carry over provided the Nintendo Network IDs on Wii U and 3DS are linked to a Nintendo account, and details about Virtual Console would come "in the future".

FAST RMX is day 1 for sure! I'll playing Shovel Knight on Wii U though.

Im extremely happy about Fast RMX, I was hoping that would happen. Definite buy for me, will be good to play something other than Zelda at launch

I'm down for FAST, wish it was physical.

Details about the Virtual Console should be coming now, not "in the future."  Ugh.

FAST is a definite day 1 buy for me, and I'll probably end up getting Shovel Knight too even though I was never that big of a fan of it just to have something else to play on the thing at launch.

Do you play Shovel Knight with the analgo stick or the "d pad" buttons?

With the Power Glove, obviously.
