Nintendo eShop Releases

Hyrule Warriors leads this week’s lineup of Nintendo eShop releases for the Nintendo Switch, 3DS, and Wii U.

Another Wii U port is the standout game in this week’s crop of Nintendo eShop releases. Hyrule Warriors isn’t particularly sophisticated, but it is a whole lot of fun. The Definitive Edition includes all of the content featured in the Wii U and 3DS versions, plus all of its additional DLC.

Also released this week is the first game in Stoic’s highly-acclaimed Banner Saga series. The second will follow soon, and the Switch will get the third game day-and-date with other platforms in July.

Other games worth a look include rogue-like dungeon crawler, Wizard of Legends, Airship Syndicate’s acclaimed RPG, Battle Chasers: Nightwar, and the spooky Little Nightmares: Complete Edition.

Here is this week’s full Nintendo eShop lineup. As always, this list is subject to change, and we’ll add details of any additional games as soon we get them.
