Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury and Little Nightmares II headline this week’s crop of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.
The Super Mario Bros. 35th Anniversary celebrations continue this week with the release of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. The game was one of the best to grace the Wii U, and we can’t wait to experience it all over again. The new Bowser’s Fury mode also looks promising. Hopefully, its open-world design is an indication of what to expect from Mario’s next mainline outing.
Also tip-toeing onto Switch this week is Little Nightmares II from Tarsier Studios. We found lots to like in the spooky 2017 original, and we’re pleased to see that the sequel isn’t just more of the same. This time the protagonist is a paper-bag wearing boy called Mono who must journey through the mysterious Pale City. The star of the first game, Six, also returns, this time as a computer-controlled companion.
Other new Nintendo Switch releases include The Flower Collectors, Summer Catchers, and Healer’s Quest.
Here’s the current lineup of new games. We’ll update this page throughout next week with any late arrivals.
