New Nintendo Switch eShop releases

Astral Chain, Heave Ho, and Decay of Logos are among the new video games coming to the Nintendo Switch eShop between August 26-30, 2019.

Astral Chain is this week’s Nintendo Switch highlight. The latest action-adventure from PlatinumGames features a mix of sleuthing, puzzles, and combat set a vibrant cyberpunk world. Early word suggests the game is one for the studio’s hit column.

One game we can absolutely vouch for is Heave Ho from Le Cartel Studio. Balancing co-operation and competition with hilarious results, it was one of the best games we saw at this year’s E3.


Other new Nintendo Switch releases include Amplify Creations’ promising action-RPG, Decay of Logos, and The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game. Here’s the full lineup of new Switch releases for the week ahead. Check back for updates and changes throughout the week.
