This week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch releases includes Animal Crossing: New Horizons and a classic Nintendo 64 shooter.
Given current events, escaping to a remote island is rather tempting, even if it is under the iron rule of Tom Nook.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons brings some welcome sunshine to the Switch in what is a significant evolution for the series. There’s a bucketful of new features to explore, the most exciting of which is the ability to terraform your new habitat. If things don’t get too fiddly, and the easy-going charm of the franchise remains intact, this could be the perfect game for troubled times.
Unlike the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the Switch isn’t getting Doom Eternal this week. In the meantime, an updated and expanded port of Doom 64 should just about satisfy our hellish desires. We’re also hopeful that the much-touted R.B.I. Baseball 20 finally gives the Nintendo Switch the baseball game it deserves.
Other new games include cult action platformer La-Mulana (and its sequel) and off-road racing game, Overpass. Exit the Gungeon and Sky Racket are also surprise releases from this week’s Indie World live stream.
