Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu! and Eevee! leads this week’s lineup of eShop video game releases for the Nintendo Switch, and Nintendo 3DS.
The Nintendo Switch gets its first big Pokémon game this week in the form of Let’s Go Pikachu! and Let’s Go Eevee!. Both titles are remakes of the Game Boy’s Pokémon Yellow, and along with a beautiful visual treatment, game play mechanics from Pokémon Go have also been introduced, much to the concern of many fans. It’s not the full-fledged mainline game we hoped for, but it will be hard to resist, nonetheless.
Also coming to the Switch this week is the SNK 40th Anniversary Collection, a compilation of 18 classic arcade and NES games, with more to come as free DLC in December.
Finally, Sid Meier’s Civilization VI is an essential game for strategy fans, and Supergonk’s futuristic racer, Trailblazers, is also worth checking out.
This list is subject to change – regional release dates seem in constant flux, and there’s always a last-minute NeoGeo release to add – but we’ll update it throughout the week with any new additions.
Here’s the full lineup of new eShop releases.
