Here’s the full list of new videogames coming to the Nintendo Switch eShop between August 12-17, 2019.
Friday the 13th: The Game didn’t receive the warmest welcome from critics on its release in 2017, but it found a sizeable audience nonetheless. The asymmetrical multiplayer gameplay is enjoyable hokum, and the experience is raised by the use of recognisable Camp Crystal Lake locations, and a score form original film composer, Harry Manfredini.
This week’s other new Switch releases include the Grandia HD Collection, which bundles together the first two games in Game Arts’ beloved RPG series. Both titles are remastered in widescreen HD, along with improvements to texture art and cinematics. The Vasara Collection, a compilation of two old arcade shoot ’em ups, is also worth a look.
Our pick of the week is Fell Seal: Arbiter’s Mark. It’s a beautifully produced turn-based tactical RPG from 6 Eyes Studio that should appeal to fans of Final Fantasy: Tactics and the Fire Emblem series.
Here’s the full lineup of new Nintendo Switch releases for the week ahead. Check back throughout the week for updates and changes.
