Here is this week’s roundup of new eShop releases for the Nintendo Switch and 3DS.
This week’s roster of new Switch releases is heavy on the puzzle games with a delightful indie gem, and a welcome update for a minor Nintendo classic to chew over.
Baba Is You first hit our radar a year ago when it was recognised for Excellence in Design and Best Student Game at the 2018 IGF awards. On the surface it’s a simple block-pushing game. The twist is that each block contains own rule that can be used to cause unexpected interactions and outcomes. It’s a truly inventive and captivating experience.
More puzzle shenanigans can be found in the new DLC pack for Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. The Special Episode includes 18 new challenges and five brand-new courses to explore. The cheap price of entry makes it a no-brainer for fans.
Other games worth a look include Golf Peaks, the small but perfectly formed golf puzzler from Afterburn, and Darjeeling’s mind-bending journey through the human body, Homo Machina.
Here’s the current lineup of this week’s new Nintendo eShop releases. We’ll keep this page updated with any last-minute additions.
