Here is this week’s roster of Nintendo eShop releases for the Nintendo Switch, 3DS, and Wii U.
E3 2018 saw a flurry of game announcements for the Nintendo Switch, plus the surprise release of Fortnite, Hollow Night, and DLC for Splatoon 2, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Things look a little calmer this week, but only just.
Another packed lineup is led by Mario Tennis Aces. Based on our time with the game at E3, and during the recent online tournament demo, it appears to be a huge improvement on the lacklustre Wii U iteration.
Also coming to the Nintendo Switch this week is the new updated edition of Minecraft. Enhancements include cross-platform multiplayer, revised terrain, and improved graphics. Owners of the existing version get the upgrade for free.
Other notable releases include Henchman & Goon’s co-op puzzle game, Pode, and Digixart Entertainment’s classical rhythm game, Lost in Harmony.
As usual, this list is subject to change throughout the week. Here is the current lineup of Nintendo eShop releases.
