Here’s the full roundup of this week’s eShop video game releases for the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS, plus details of the first Switch Online NES games.
It’s a busier than usual week on the Nintendo eShop, with a raft of brand new games joined by 20 NES classics available as part of the Nintendo Switch Online Service.
Pick of the week is Toby Fox’s genre-breaking RPG, Undertale. Expect to see this marvellous game become a phenomenon all over again.
Other Nintendo Switch releases include the enjoyable day-glow parkour game, Hover, and the standalone release of Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna The Golden Country.
As usual, this list is subject to change, so check back for updates throughout the week.
