Nintendo eShop releases for October 22-26, 2018

Here’s the full roundup of this week’s eShop video game releases for the Nintendo Switch, and Nintendo 3DS.



Nintendo eShop Releases

Here’s the full lineup of this week’s eShop video game releases for the Nintendo Switch, and Nintendo 3DS.

The Nintendo Switch might not have Red Dead Redemption 2, but it does have over 30 games hitting the eShop this week. We’ll leave you to judge if that’s a good thing.

It’s the smaller games that are attracting our attention from this week’s roster. Tomorrow Corporation – of Little Inferno and World of Goo fame – return with 7 Billion Humans, a new programming puzzle game that expands on the mechanics of the studio’s earlier release, Human Resource Machine.


Atmos Games’ Pinstripe also makes its Switch debut. It’s an enjoyable and sobering puzzle adventure game in equal measure. The beloved Data East sports game, Windjammers, also gets a release ahead of its official sequel which is planned for early next year.

Elsewhere, Ubisoft’s Just Dance 2019 gives players the chance to throw some shapes, and THQ Nordic’s Let’s Sing 2019 provides vocals accompaniment.

This list is subject to change, but we’ll keep it updated throughout the week with any new additions. Here’s the full lineup of new eShop releases.
