Here’s the full rundown on this week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.
Skully from Finish Line Games is one of this week’s Nintendo Switch highlights. The game’s descriptor sums up it rather nicely, saying: “Dodge obstacles across the island as Skully, a reanimated skull brought back to life by the power of magical clay.” It looks like a bizarre yet inventive update of the ball rolling genre with added adventure elements and a fully-acted narrative.
Also arriving to Switch this week is West of Dead from Upstream Arcade. Set in the grim world of Purgatory, this Wild West twin-stick shooter features some excellent comic book visuals and the voice talents of Ron Perlman.
Meanwhile, Swimsanity! is a colourful multiplayer underwater shooter from Decoy Games. The game has picked up various awards on the indie festival circuit and looks like a perfect fit for Switch with support for both online and local play.
Other new Nintendo Switch releases include Kukkoro Days, Hard Cube, and Wizards: Wand of Epicosity.
