Here is this week’s lineup of Nintendo eShop video game releases for the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS.
Highlights include corporate spy point-and-click adventure, The Low Road, from XGen Studios. The game was released on PC last year, where an appreciative audience embraced its darkly comic tone, and wonderful art direction.
Also released this week is Little Dragons Café, the new game from Yasuhiro Wada, creator of the Harvest Moon series. The game features a charming confection of dragon raising, café management, and farming. Early word suggests that Wada is back on fine form.
Connoisseurs of tough platformers might also be tempted by the challenging Shio, from Coconut Island Studio.
