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

The Switch might not be getting Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, but there’s still a lot to unpack in a busy week on the Nintendo eShop.

It’s another lineup heavy on older titles as another batch of games get Switch ports. Child of Light, Guacamelee!The Swindle, Game Dev Story, and Disgaea 1 all come to Nintendo’s console this week.


Pick of the bunch is the remastered edition of Klei Entertainment’s, Mark of the Ninja. It’s a stealth action game of the highest calibre that is as essential now as it was when it debuted on the Xbox 360 back in 2012.

The week ends with two more welcome remakes. Beloved Nintendo DS JRPG, The World Ends with You, gets a visual spruce and some new content as it comes to Switch. And spooky GameCube launch title, Luigi’s Mansion, which comes to the Nintendo 3DS with a new multiplayer mode.

Three classic NES games also come to the Nintendo Switch Online service, and Pinball FX3 receives its first Williams DLC pack.

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