Want new Nintendo Switch games? We’ve got new Nintendo Switch games. Here’s this week’s lineup of new eShop releases.
Update: August 18 – We’ve added a crop of new games announced on this week’s Nintendo Indie World Showcase. They include A Short Hike, Raji, and the Spiritfarer.
Original post – Begone, intrusive UI! That’s box quote for Gleamlight, the new 2D action game from DICO and D3. There’s more than an echo of Hollow Knight in its art direction and melancholic tone, but the stained-glass visuals are a treat for eyes nonetheless. Let’s hope the game carves its own identity from a gameplay perspective.
Fans of Peaky Blinders should doff their, erm, peaky blinders, to FuturLab who bring the hit TV series to Switch in an intriguing tactical stealth game. The time-line mechanics look great, and if the mission design is up to scratch, this could be an unexpected, small scale treat.
We’re also pleased to see 2K bring PGA Tour 2K21 to Switch, a series we enjoyed quite a bit in its previous guise as The Golf Club. If the game performs well, it will be a welcome addition to the console’s small library of above par sports games.
Finally, the long and tortuous journey of The Eternal Castle [REMASTERED] concludes this week as the game finally gets a European release. We liked it. Sort of. Maybe.
Other new Nintendo Switch games include Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time, Cecconoid, Phoenotopia: Awakening, and Even The Ocean. Here is the full lineup of new Nintendo eShop releases.
