Assassin’s Creed III, Sonic Team Racing, and three Resident Evil games are among this week’s lineup of new eShop releases for the Nintendo Switch.
Team Sonic Racing is this week’s pick of the new releases. The Sumo Digital-developed racer has stiff competition from a certain plumber on Nintendo Switch, but the game’s well-executed team system, and superb track design make it a worthy companion to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
It’s also a busy week for ports. First up, Capcom are bringing Resident Evil 0, Resident Evil 1, and Resident Evil 4 to Switch. Considering their age they are all overpriced but, considering their age, they all hold up remarkably well.
Ubisoft are also digging into their back catalogue with Assassin’s Creed III: Remastered. The game appears to feature modest upgrades in comparison to the recent Xbox and PS4 version, and let’s hope it fares better than the recent port of Saints Row: The Third. It also comes packed with the enjoyable spin-off, Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation.
Other releases include the Dead Cells: Rise of the Giant expansion, and Wonder Boy Returns Remix, a sub-par re-skin of the franchise’s first game. Our advice is to stick with Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap.
Here’s the full lineup of new Nintendo eShop games. We’ll add any additional titles as they are confirmed throughout the week.
