The Pokémon Sword and Shield expansion and a classic racing game are our picks from this week’s new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.
This week’s big Nintendo eShop release is The Isle of Armor, the first part of the expansion pass for Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. The DLC adds a whole new area to the game, a new storyline, two Gigantamax forms, and a handful of new gameplay features. You can look forward to another drop of content, The Crown Tundra, later this year.
Also racing onto Nintendo Switch is EA’s classic open-world racing game, Burnout Paradise. We’ve wanted the game on Switch for some time, and although it’s ridiculously priced, we’re looking forward to seeing how well it performs.
Retro game enthusiasts should check out Namco Museum Archives. Games inducing Galaxian, Mappy, Galaga, and Dig Dug are spread across two volumes in an expansion of the collection we reviewed back in 2017.
And retro train enthusiasts should take a look at Railway Empire, the delayed choo-choo sim now arriving on Nintendo Switch this Friday. All aboard!
Other new eShop releases include Across the Groove, Colt Canyon, and Radio Squid.
We’ll update this page throughout the week with any late additions. In the meantime, here’s the full lineup of this week’s new Nintendo eShop releases.
