This week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases includes an update to a 3DS RPG favourite and a new multiplayer game from the makers of Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit.
Miitopia was a late period RPG for the Nintendo 3DS that was mostly overlooked. The game comes to Nintendo Switch five years later with stunning HD visuals and some new gameplay features. The free eShop demo has already produced some spectacular creations from its updated Mii-creation tool, and it’s definitely worth a look if you’re prepared to populate the game with characters based on friends and family. As an RPG, it’s definitely on the light side, but it’s good fun.
A fun time also looks guaranteed by Knockout City, the new dodgeball-flavoured online multiplayer game from Velan Studios, creators of Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit. There’s a colour and personality in abundance, and a ten-day free play period should be enough time to determine if the game is a genuine contender.
Other new Nintendo Switch releases include free-running racer Aerial_Knight’s Never Yield, gothic RPG Sunless Skies, and anime dungeon crawler Kowloon High-School Chronicle.
Here’s the full eShop lineup for the week ahead. We’ll update this post if we get news of any late additions.
