New Nintendo Switch eShop releases

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice headlines this week’s lineup of new eShop releases for the Nintendo Switch. 

Ninja Theory’s Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is this week’s Nintendo eShop highlight. The game comes to Switch two years after its initial release, and although it’s prudent to expect some compromises in visual fidelity, Melina Juergens outstanding performance, the affecting story, and the crunchy combat mechanics should still shine.

Also released this week is the HD version of Capcom’s Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy, and Nerial’s excellent swipe ’em up, Reigns: Game of Thrones.


Nintendo Switch Online subscribers can get their hands on three more classic NES games, including Punch Out!! and Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels.

Friday also sees the retail release of Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit. In addition to the included mini-games, VR modes are also being added to Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Here’s the full list of new Nintendo eShop releases, we’ll add more games as they are confirmed.
