AO Tennis 2, 140, and Thoth headline this week’s lineup of new eShop releases for the Nintendo Switch.

The slow but steady start to 2020 continues with another relatively quiet week on the Nintendo Switch eShop.

Pick of the bunch is the perfectly timed released of AO Tennis 2. Last year’s offering was above average. Hopefully, a revamped career mode and a new legendary match mode will make this year’s edition even better.

Also of note are two games from Jeppe Carlsen, former lead game designer at Playdead. First up is Carlsen’s 2013 IGF award-winning rhythm platformer, 140. It’s accompanied by his 2016 artistic shoot ’em up, Thoth. Both games are well worth a look.

Other new Switch releases include beat ‘em up platforming sequel Blackmoor 2 and rag-doll brawler, Drunk-Fu: Wasted Masters.

Here’s the current lineup of confirmed new games. We’ll update the list if things change throughout the week.
