Shantae and the Atelier Mysterious Trilogy headline his week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.
The original Shantae leaps onto the Nintendo Switch this week in an updated version of the cult-classic 2002 Game Boy Color adventure. WayForward’s game comes with a range of new features, including a GBA-enhanced mode, a bonus Tinkerbat transformation, save states, various display modes, and a mini art gallery.
Fans of the Atelier RPG series are also in for a treat. The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings came to Switch in 2018 and is joined this week by its two predecessors, which were previously PlayStation exclusives. All three games are now available separately as Definitive Editions or together in the Atelier Mysterious Trilogy Deluxe Pack.
Other new releases include The Skylia Prophecy, Little Mouse’s Encyclopedia, and – praise the puzzle maker – Picross S6, the latest game in Jupiter’s excellent nonogram series.
