Heaven’s Vault and Cyber Shadow headline this week’s list of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.

There’s a bumper lineup of games coming to Nintendo eShop this week, plus new DLC for one of the Switch’s best indie titles.

We’re most excited to play Cyber Shadow, a decidedly old-school action game from Mechanical Head Games. 8-bit style games are common enough, but this one is also published by Shovel Knight creators, Yacht Club Games. They know a thing or two about combining old and new, so we’re are hopeful that Cyber Shadow will deliver the goods.

Speaking of old games, you won’t go far wrong with Turrican Flashback, a new collection of four classic Turrican games from the 1990s. Each one has updated controls, a handy rewind feature, and pristine copies of Chris Huelsbeck’s iconic music.

A newer highlight is Heaven’s Vault from Inkle, creators of 80 Days. It’s an archaeological sci-fi adventure and a masterful example of narrative story-telling.

Finally, Dead Cells gets a new content expansion. Fatal Falls adds brand new enemies, weapons, and biomes to the roguelike action platformer. The base game and all DLC released to date is also available as Dead Cells: The Fatal Seed Bundle.

Here’s the full lineup of new games.  We’ll keep this page updated with any late additions throughout the week.
