New Nintendo Switch eShop releases

Oninaki, Rad, and FAR: Lone Sails are among the new videogames coming to the Nintendo Switch eShop between August 18-23, 2019.

There’s a packed week ahead with a promising lineup of games coming to the Nintendo eShop. Top of the list is a Okomotive’s FAR: Lone Sails, which is released on Nintendo Switch today. FAR: Lone Sails is an exploration adventure in which players must maintain and pilot a vehicle across a startling post-apocalyptic world. It’s a well paced, intriguing, and sometimes rather affecting game.

There are more post apocalyptic adventures to be had in the neon-fused world of Rad. Double Fine’s latest game is a top-down rogue-like in which you can enhance your character with some (often yucky) mutations. Yay for, erm, tape worms.


The accurately named Tokyo RPG Factory also return this week with Oninaki, a new action RPG that crosses the divide between life and death. It looks like being the studio’s best effort yet. Finally, retro gamers can look forward to two more entries in the Sega Ages series as Space Harrier and Puyo Puyo get a little TLC from porting specialists, M2.

Here’s the full lineup of new Nintendo Switch releases for the week ahead. Check back for updates and changes throughout the week.
