Dark Light

Road 96 and a Space Invaders retrospective are the highlights from this week’s list of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.

There’s a busy enough week ahead for New Nintendo Switch eShop releases, but only a few games catch the eye. One game that does is Road 96 from DigixArt, the studio behind Valiant Hearts and Memories Retold. It’s a narrative road trip adventure inspired by the films of Quentin Tarantino, The Coen Brothers, and Bong Joon-ho. If the game can live up to its influences, it should be a trip worth taking.

Space Invaders Invincible Collection is another pick. The compilation brings together 11 games from Taito’s long-running and influential arcade series. The inclusion of PSP and Nintendo DS classic Space Invaders Extreme makes the collection worth getting, and other highlights include Lunar Rescue, Space Cyclone, and Majestic Twelve: The Space Invaders Part IV.

Other new Nintendo Switch releases include Greak: Memories of Azur, Out of Line, and Where’s Samantha? We’ll update this page throughout the week with any late arrivals.
