Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory and Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered headline this week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.
Let’s start our round-up with Fuser, the new music game from Harmonix, makers of Rock Band and Dance Central. Players can mix tracks from an excellent lineup of songs using a virtual DJ table with four record players. The music is superb, the tone feels perfectly pitched, and long term DLC support is guaranteed. We hope it’s the successor to DJ Hero we’ve been waiting for.
Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory is an altogether different type of rhythm action game. This musical spin-off retells the events of the RPG series so far and features a range of famous compositions, plus a host of returning characters. It’s unlikely to introduce newcomers to the franchise, but fans should enjoy this trip down memory lanes.
A while ago I moaned that EA was losing its mind with the pricing of Burnout Paradise on Nintendo Switch. Well, I’m pleased to say that this week’s release of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered comes with a much more palatable $40/£35 price point. It’s a fun, genuinely thrilling racer from Criterion Games, and the Switch port also looks impressive.
Other new Nintendo Switch releases include Just Dance 21, Super Star Panda, and the delayed cyberpunk action game, Ghostrunner.
Here’s the full lineup of new releases. We’ll update this page throughout the week with any late additions.
