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.

Other Nintendo Switch releases include the enjoyable day-glow parkour game, Hover, and the standalone release of Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna The Golden Country.
