Nintendo is to demonstrate its commitment to supporting the indie scene with the Nintendo eShop Selects range, which sees Shin’en Multimedia’s FAST Racing NEO and Image & Form’s SteamWorld Collection head to retail.
Players can weave their way through futuristic sci-fi racer FAST Racing NEO, piloting anti-gravity vehicles through dense jungles, futuristic cities, abandoned mines or high up in the stratosphere.
The Nintendo eShop Selects version will add eight downloadable courses that will become available in the NEO Future Pack on-disc. This add-on content will see release on the Nintendo eShop on September 30th, with some tracks to be playable at this year’s Gamescom in August.
The SteamWorld Collection will bundle SteamWorld Dig and SteamWorld Heist in the same retail package. Entirely different experiences, SteamWorld Dig will see you as the lone mining steambot Rusty as he arrives at an old mining town in need. You will dig beneath the earth to gather riches and unlock upgrades that will let you explore new areas.
SteamWorld Heist on the otherhand places you in control of a steam-driven pirate crew, as you board, loot and shoot your way through enemy spaceships. Promising turn-based strategy with an action twist, players are encourages to pull off skill shots as they ricochet bullets to eliminate their enemies.
Stylish hats are just one reward, with SteamWorld Heist‘s The Outsider add-on content to be included on-disc with new weapons, gear and headwear. SteamWorld Heist‘s Wii U version will be playable at Gamescom.
