Here’s the full roundup of this week’s eShop video game releases for the Nintendo Switch, and Nintendo 3DS.
The pick of this week’s games is Ubisoft’s Starlink: Battle for Atlas. The Nintendo Switch edition has received plenty of attention due to its Star Fox content, and compatible toys. It looks a thoroughly enjoyable sci-fi shooter, and will hopefully be better than some of Fox McCloud’s more recent adventures.
Other releases include the classic iOS puzzle game, The Room – which comes to Switch with new motions controls – and Lego DC Super-Villains from Traveller’s Tales and WB Games. Nintendo 3DS owners can also pick up the new version of GameCube launch title, Luigi’s Mansion.
Finally, the Switch gets its long-awaited port of Dark Souls: Remastered. According to reports, the game performs remarkably well, even in Blight Town, so enjoy your trip to cheery old Lordran.
As always, this list is subject to change. We’ll keep it updated throughout the week with any new additions. Here’s the full lineup of new releases.
