A bunch of new Nintendo Switch games are released on the eShop this week, but are any of them worth playing?

The new year is a funny time for new video games. Most publishers prefer to hold back on big releases, leaving a ragtag collection of indies and mobile ports to fill the gap. This week’s lineup of Nintendo Switch releases is pretty light, but a few titles stand out.

Demon Gaze Extra is an enhanced port of the cult-favourite PS Vita JRPG. The new edition includes an all-new dungeon and job category, plus highspeed battle and retry functions.

Heaven Dust 2 is another noteworthy release. One Gruel Studio’s survival horror is pitched as a homage to the genre’s early classics and features a mix of exploration, action, puzzles, and resource management.

Other new Nintendo eShop games to look out for include Teamfight Manager, Theatre of Sorrows, and Warshmallows.

More Nintendo Switch releases may pop up throughout the week, so check back for any last-minute updates.
