A trip to the Galar region beckons as Pokémon Sword and Shield is released for the Nintendo Switch. Here’s our roundup of this week’s new eShop releases.
Pokémon Sword and Shield are the week’s biggest Nintendo Switch releases. The new gen-8 entries in the long-running RPG series are the first to be developed from the ground up for the Switch, and they look to offer a significant jump in complexity over last year’s Let’s Go remakes. That jump means saying goodbye to a full Pokédex, but new additions such as Dynamax and Gigantimax powers, an open wild area, and a humorous take on British culture, should keep longtime fans of the franchise enthralled.
Shin’en Multimedia’s The Touryst is another intriguing new release. The voxel aesthetics are impressive, and if the game’s puzzles are up to scratch this could be something of a gem.
Square Enix is also releasing the long-awaited remake of SNES JPRG classic, Romancing SaGa 3. Other new Nintendo Switch games include Bee Simulator, WRC 8 and Galactic Defence Squadron.
Here is the current lineup of confirmed new Nintendo Switch releases. Check back throughout the week for any late additions.
