Here’s our roundup of this week’s Nintendo eShop releases for Nintendo Switch, Wii U and 3DS.
This week sees another ageing indie favourite make an appearance on the Nintendo Switch, Vblank’s Retro City Rampage DX. It’s likely that you’ve had plenty of opportunities to play the game by now – it’s available on just about everything – but if not, it still comes with our recommendation. The only caveat being that upcoming sequel – Shakedown Hawaii – looks to substantially expand the formula, and might be worth waiting for.
Another retro-inspired title arriving on the eShop this week is Slime-san. Fabraz’s fast-paced action platformer came to Steam earlier this year, where it has garnered a Positive rating from players. It certainly has a vibrant, distinctive aesthetic that makes it stand out in the crowded market of pixel platformers. The Switch version supports HD Rumble, and up to two players.
Here is the full list of this week’s Nintendo eShop games.
