Here’s the full roundup of this week’s Nintendo eShop video game releases for the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS.
Heart Machine’s Hyper Light Drifter – Special Edition is one of this week’s Nintendo Switch eShop highlights. The action RPG comes to Switch with a number of exclusive features, including a new costume, two new weapons, and a Tower Climb challenge.
There’s also a welcome release for The Fullbright Company’s influential exploration game, Gone Home, which comes to the Switch via the good folk at Annapurna Interactive.
And at the other end of the scale we have tag-team fighter, SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy, Yasuyuki Oda’s pseudo-sequel to King of Fighters XV.
As usual, this list is subject to change – you can expect something from the ACA NeoGeo range – so check back for updates throughout the week.
