InnerSpace and Nightmare Boy head this week’s lineup of eShop releases for the Nintendo Switch, 3DS and Wii U.
It’s a jam-packed week on the Nintendo eShop with a smorgasbord of new games to choose from.
Our picks are InnerSpace, a striking flying adventure from PolyKnight, and Nightmare Boy, the darkly comic Metroidvania from The Vanir Project.
Also released this week is the Nintendo Switch edition of World to the West from Rain Games. The studio’s follow-up to Teslagrad was slightly overlooked on its initial release – despite considerable critical acclaim – so if you’re in the market for a puzzle-filled Zelda-style adventure, it comes highly recommended.
Here’s the full Nintendo eShop release list.
