Star Wars: Republic Commando and The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV headline this week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.
It’s an older game that catches our eye from this week’s Nintendo eShop release lineup. Star Wars: Republic Commando is a tactical first-person shooter that debuted on Xbox and PC back in 2005. It remains one of the best Star Wars games ever made, and we’re excited to take our squad of clone troopers into battle once again. The port comes via Aspyr, who impressed us last year with a polished Switch version of Star Wars Episode 1: Racer.
Nihon Falcom’s The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV is another welcome addition to the Switch’s growing RPG library. It’s a sprawling, 100-hour plus JRPG with an expansive cast of characters and a deep combat system. The game closes the Cold Steel saga with considerable style, but it’s probably not the best entry point for series newcomers.
Other new Nintendo Switch releases include Cozy Grove, What the Dub?!, Luckslinger, and Skyland: Heart of the Mountain. We’ll add to this list throughout the week with any late additions.
