Payday 2 and Old Man’s Journey lead this week’s lineup of eShop releases for the Nintendo Switch, 3DS and Wii U.
The Nintendo Switch receives a slew of new games this week, the pick of which – assuming the port is up to scratch – is Payday 2, from Starbreeze Studios.
Also worth a look is Broken Rule’s mediative adventure game, Old Man’s Journey, and Nussoft’s curious piscine shooter, Ace of Seafood. And if you’re looking for a modern spin on an old classic, Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus comes highly recommended.
The Nintendo 3DS also gets a new game this week, a surprise port of Image and Form’s fabulous digdugvania, SteamWorld Dig 2. The Switch remains the game’s optimum platform, but a silky smooth 60fps means the 3DS version is not without merit.
Here is the full Nintendo eShop release list. We’ll update this list with any new releases as we get confirmation.
