This week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases includes two classic detective tales and two sci-fi survival games.

For all the occasions Nintendo frustrates fans, it can always dig deep into its history to bring back something unexpected. Star Fox 2, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, and EarthBound Beginnings are prime examples. Two more games to add to that list are Famicom Detective Club: The Girl Who Stands Behind and Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir.

Released for the Famicom Disk System in 1988, these two R&D1-developed murder mystery games never made it to the west. They come to Nintendo Switch as ground-up remakes with stylish anime graphics.

Acclaimed sci-fi survival game Subnautica – and its follow-up Subnautica: Below Zero – also come to Nintendo Switch this week. The first game was an instant hit on its full 2018 release and should be a great experience on Switch if the port is up to the task. The sequel builds on the first game with more environments to explore and an increased narrative emphasis.

Other new Nintendo Switch releases include Retro Machina and Space Commander: War and Trade. Here’s the full eShop lineup for the week ahead. We’ll update this post if we get news of any late additions.
