Here’s the full lineup of this week’s Nintendo eShop games for the Nintendo Switch, Wii U, and 3DS.

Before the arrival of the Switch you could expect all eShop games to arrive on a Thursday. However, since the release of Nintendo’s new console, release dates have become harder to determine. Significant indie games, in particular, are arriving earlier in the week to ensure parity with their release on other platforms. Once such example is Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, which was released on Switch yesterday.

Lizardcube’s remake of the Sega Master System classic is a lovingly crafted piece of work that includes a beautiful new score and visual treatment, as well as the option to play using the game’s original 8-bit graphics and sounds. If you’re a fan of the original – and you should be – it’s an essential purchase.


Over on Nintendo 3DS you can pick up the latest in a long line of brick smashing arcade games in Breakout Defence. And on Wii U you can choose from puzzle game Orbit – which is reminiscent of Nintendo’s Art Style game, Orbient – and Absolutely Unstoppable MineRun.

Here’s the Nintendo eShop lineup for this week:
