Here’s our roundup of this week’s new eShop video game releases for the Nintendo Switch.
The next breakout hit from the Nintendo Switch eShop is sure to be Ape Out, a wild new smash ’em up developed by Gabe Cuzzillo, with assistance from Bennett Foddy and Matt Boch. This primal take on Hotline: Miami is colourful and violent, with a delicious integrated percussive score.
Also released this week is Trials Rising from RedLynx and Ubisoft. The Trials series has long been a favourite of mine, but based on the game’s open beta, the Switch version might be best left on the starting line. The game looks a little muddy, only runs at 30fps, and is compromised by the Joy-Con’s lack of analogue triggers (although GameCube controllers are compatible). These are not necessarily deal breakers, but fans with access to other consoles should choose carefully.
Deltarune Chapter 1, the sequel, not-sequel, spin-off, not spin-off to Toby Fox’s Undertale also arrives this week, and is completely free.
Other picks include the cute Game Boy-style platformer, Awesome Pea, The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame, and ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove!
