This week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases features Pokémon puzzling and Star Wars racing.
Although the reveal of New Pokémon Snap on last week’s Pokémon Presents broadcast grabbed all the headlines, we were also intrigued by new puzzle game, Pokémon Café Mix. It’s a free-to-play title, so exercise some caution, but puzzles and Pokémon are often happy bedfellows, and it looks like good fun. The game is also coming to mobile.
Another free-to-play game is GungHo Online’s Ninjala. It’s a colourful online multiplayer battle game that gives us serious Splatoon and Arms vibes. We played it briefly at last year’s E3 and thought it was rather promising. Definitely one to check out.
We’re also excited to finally compete in the Boonta Eve Classic as Aspyr Media’s HD remaster of Star Wars Episode I: Racer comes to Switch following a short delay. Prepare to eat poodoo, Sebulba.
Meanwhile, Night Call casts players a cab driver working the Paris night shift. A serial killer is on the loose, and loose talking fares hold the secret. This noir thriller was highly acclaimed on its PC release and should be the perfect fit for Switch.
Other new releases include Yes, Your Grace, Blair Witch, and Quill’s canine visual novel, A Summer with the Shiba Inu. Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour, however, can bog right off.
We’ll update this page with any late additions throughout the week. In the meantime, here is this week’s lineup of new Nintendo eShop releases.
