Firewatch and Donut County lead this week’s eShop video game releases for the Nintendo Switch.
Campo Santo’s Firewatch is the pick of this week’s Nintendo eShop releases. We absolutely loved the game when it was first released in 2016, and assuming the Switch port (the game has been rebuilt from the ground up) is solid, we can’t wait to revisit the Shoshone National Forest.
Also worth a look is Brian Esposito’s Donut County. The game has been a darling on the indie festival circuit for some time, and it’s easy to see why. The game features an engaging and quirky cast of characters, and an inventive hole-swallowing gameplay mechanic.
Other new games include the surprisingly fun Fitness Boxing, and Unicube’s post-apocalyptic survival game, Sheltered.
This list is likely to change – expect a new Arcade Archives or NeoGeo release – so pop back for updates throughout the week.
