Warframe and Nidhogg 2 leads this week’s lineup of eShop video game releases for the Nintendo Switch, and Wii U.
Warframe, the popular free-to-play action game from Digital Extremes, blasts onto the Nintendo eShop this week. Initial impressions indicate that porting specialists, Panic Button, have worked their magic yet again in bringing the game over to the Switch.
Also released this week is Messhoff’s delightful and disturbing, Nidhogg 2, and Pinokl’s cult stealth action game, Party Hard.
Finally, another classic Xbox 360 game comes out of retirement in the shape of Twisted Pixels’ rambunctious platformer, Ms. Splosion Man.
This list is subject to change – regional release dates are always changing, and there’s bound to be a NeoGeo game to add – but we’ll keep it updated throughout the week.
Here’s the full lineup of new eShop releases.
