Here’s the full rundown of this week’s new eShop releases for the Nintendo Switch, and 3DS.
The return of Travis Touchdown is this week’s Nintendo eShop highlight, with the long-awaited release of Grasshopper Manufacture’s Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes.
We say highlight, but the jury’s still out on how well this mix of retro-style arcade games, and indie collaborations will come together. For good or bad, it looks like a Suda51 game through and through.
Capcom are also releasing a remaster of Onimusha: Warlords, and gamers of a certain age might feel nostalgic for the return of Dirk the Daring in the Dragons Lair Trilogy.
There are also two more NES games heading to the Nintendo Switch online service. In Europe and North America you get Zelda II: The Adventure of Link and BlasterMaster, and if you have access to the Japanese Famicom service you can also download Joy Mech Fight.
Check back throughout the week for more updates, including news of new Arcade Archives and NeoGeo games.
