Shovel Knight: Pocket Dungeon and Chicory: A Colorful Tale headline this week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.

Apart from the release of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl, it’s been a relatively quiet period for top-tier Nintendo Switch games. Thankfully, some excellent Indies have filled the void.

That continues this week with the release Shovel Knight: Pocket Dungeon, a new spin-off from Yacht Club’s acclaimed retro platformer. The game is pitched as a homage to 90s era drop-puzzle games with added roguelike and dungeon crawler elements. Sounds like a win to us.

Speaking of retro games, Atari (or the company that currently uses that name) is back with a new version of an arcade classic. Asteroids: Recharged gets an HD makeover, and although we’re not convinced by Geometry Wars-style visuals, we’re excited to hear the soundtrack from composer Megan McDuffee.

This week’s other Nintendo Switch releases include Omno, Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth, and Clockwork Aquario. We’ll add to this list throughout the week with any latecomers.

Update: Dec 15, 2021 – We’ve added some surprise releases revealed on this week’s Nintendo Indie Showcase including Chicory: A Colorful Tale and Dungeon Munchies.
