Here is this week’s lineup of Nintendo eShop releases for the Nintendo Switch, 3DS, and Wii U.
It’s another packed week on the Nintendo eShop, but a fairly uninspiring one, it must be said. Highlights include two more retro releases from Hamster Corporation: the NeoGeo’s Samurai Shodown III, and the arcade classic, Ninja-Kid, which is not to be confused with the NES game of a similar name.
Metropolis: Lux Obscura might also be worth a look. Yes, it’s a match-three puzzle game, but its comic book art and funky soundtrack could help distinguish it. A free demo is also available.
Although it’s great to see the Nintendo Switch proving popular, the influx of mobile games, and old PC titles, is beginning to hurt the eShop by burying the real gems. We don’t imagine there’s a huge market for games like Animated Jigsaws: Beautiful Japanese Scenery, but if there is, let us know in the comments below.
Here is this week’s full Nintendo eShop release lineup. We’ll add any new games – and full EU pricing – as soon as we get confirmation.
