Here is this week’s lineup of Nintendo eShop releases for the Nintendo Switch, 3DS, and Wii U.
It’s another incredible week for new releases on the Nintendo Switch, with more than 25 games coming to Europe and North America.
One highlight is the HD re-issue of Hiroshi Iuchi’s bullet-hell shooter, Ikaruga. The game is genuine classic, and on Switch it can be played in portrait view when the console is undocked.
Another pick is Smoke and Sacrifice, a huge open-world, narrative-driven RPG from Solar Sail Games. The sumptuous hand-drawn art catches the attention, but it’s the game’s characters, crafting mechanics, and story that will draw players in.
Two other games to check out are Asymmetric’s cowboy RPG, West of Loathing (check out our report on the game’s writing), and Yoku’s Island Express, a charming blend of platform and pinball from Villa Gorilla.
The Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection also brings 12 arcade classics from Capcom to the Nintendo Switch.
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.
