A trio of excellent indie games headline this week’s list of Nintendo Switch eShop releases.
A few weeks ago, we highlighted A Monster’s Expedition, the most recent game from noted indie developer Alan Hazelden, also known as part of Draknek & Friends.
This week, three more titles from these puzzle game luminaries are released on the Nintendo Switch eShop. A Good Snowman is Hard to Build, Cosmic Express, and Sokobond are all completely compelling subtle works of genius.
Also coming to the eShop this week is NIS Classics Volume 1, which brings together Phantom Brave: The Hermuda Triangle Remastered and Soul Normad and The World Eaters.
As long time Rocky fans, we’re also hopeful that Big Rumble Boxing: Creed Champions turns out to be a satisfying bout of arcade boxing action.
Other new Nintendo Switch releases include Monster Harvest, RICO London, and Golf Club Wasteland. We’ll update this page with any late eShop additions throughout the week.
