Here’s our roundup of this week’s Nintendo eShop video game releases for the Nintendo Switch.
The biggest game to come to Nintendo Switch next week – and by biggest, we really just mean the most expensive – is an updated version of Koei Tecmo’s Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends.
If a reissue of a 2013 hack-and-slash game doesn’t float your boat, there are a few other releases that might be of interest.
Spiral Summit’s top-down, rogue-like shooter, Blacksea Odyssey, is certainly worth a look, as is Videocult’s survival platformer, Rain World. The game is out now in North America, and comes to Europe later this week.
This list is likely to change – we’d expect an Arcade Archives or NeoGeo release as a minimum – so check back for updates throughout the week. Here’s the full lineup of new Nintendo eShop releases.
