This week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch releases brings family fun to the great indoors with Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit and The Jackbox Party Pack 7.
Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit leads a pack of over 40 games coming to Nintendo Switch this week. The AR racing game – which was developed in partnership with Velan Studios – looks like a lot of fun, assuming you have the room for it. It’s a shame the kart packs are not a little cheaper, but we doubt that will stop the game becoming a big hit this autumn.
The long-awaited Jackbox Party Pack 7 also arrives this week. It features five games for the family to enjoy, with series favourite Quiplash 3 joined by Blather Round, The Devils and the Details, Champ’d Up, and Talking Points.
Other new Nintendo eShop releases include the director’s cut of WayForward’s Shantae: Risky’s Revenge and Ion Lands’ beautiful neo-noir sci-fi adventure, Cloudpunk.
Here’s the full lineup of confirmed new Nintendo Switch games. We’ll update this post with any latecomers throughout the week.
