Sea of Solitude and the return of Harvest Moon are among this week’s new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.
More than 30 new games are released on Nintendo Switch this week, but few of them are particularly notable.
Of those that are, we are most interested to see how Sea of Solitude: The Director’s Cut fares on Switch. The game was first published on PS4 and Xbox One under the EA Originals banner in 2019. It’s an emotional game – described by creative director Cornelia Geppert as a personal and artistic journey – and comes to Switch with a rewritten script and a new cast of voice actors. The game is now published by Quantic Dream, but we’ll try and ignore that.
The first season 3 out of 10 offers more madcap pursuits. Described as a playable sitcom by developer Terrible Posture Games, the game found fans with an episodic release PC. It comes to Nintendo Switch as a complete season.
Fans of romance, vegetables, and animal husbandry should also prepare themselves for Harvest Moon: One World. Other new games include Ruinverse, Wind Peaks, and Monster Jam Steel Titans 2.
Here’s the full lineup of this week’s Nintendo Switch games. We’ll update this page throughout the week with any late arrivals.
