Indie news (Dec. 13, Round 2): Rime rated for Switch / Shovel Knight @ 1.5 million units sold

Today’s Indie news (Roung 2!): Rime rated for the Nintendo Switch, but also…

  • Shovel Knight


Rime is a puzzle adventure game developed by Tequila Works, which was originally supposed to be a PlayStation 4 exclusive. But due to a rather rocky development, Sony ended up selling back the rights to the game to the developers, and so Rime is ending up as a multi-platform title.

And it looks like, in that case, multiplatform includes the Nintendo Switch. According to a rating on the Classificação Indicativa (Brasil) website, spotted by Gematsu, Rime is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and… Nintendo Switch. No formal announcement has been made, but there’s no doubt we should hear something about that in the upcoming weeks.

The list of confirmed games for the Nintendo Switch and the Upcoming Releases page have been updated!

Shovel Knight

To say that Shovel Knight is successful is a bit of an understatement: it’s now sold over 1 million units, with the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions amounting for almost half of total sales. But the thing is: Shovel Knight isn’t quite done selling… far from it!

According to US Gamer, who published an interview with the developers earlier this month, Shovel Knight has now sold over 1.5 million units worldwide: that’s 300 000 units more than in April, when we last got an update on Shovel Knight sales.
