Dead Cells and Overcooked! 2 lead this week’s lineup of Nintendo eShop releases for the Nintendo Switch, 3DS, and Wii U.
This week’s avalanche of Nintendo eShop games is full of recommendations. So let’s dive in.
First up is Dead Cells, a tightly designed metroidvania-roguelike from Motion Twin. The game has been in PC early access for a while and has found plenty of fans. Expect it to do the same with its release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this week.
Other highlights include chaotic co-op cooking game, Overcooked! 2, which serves up more multiplayer shenanigans, and Zoink’s puzzling platformer, Flipping Death.
Later in the week the Switch also receives the HD port of Okami, now complete with touch and motion controls, plus Jan Willem Nijman’s charming micro Zelda-like, Minit. And there’s also a free open beta for Dragon Ball FighterZ.
As usual, this list is subject to change throughout the week. Here is the current lineup of Nintendo eShop releases.
