The wonderful Pikmin 3 Deluxe headlines this week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop video game releases.

We’ve been hoping for a Nintendo Switch port of Pikmin 3 for years now. Although it’s been a long time coming, anyone who played the Wii U original can confirm the game is worth the wait. Pikmin 3 is a masterclass of real-time strategy gameplay that is imbued with some Nintendo magic to make often niche genre accessible to players of all ages. The Deluxe reissue might not feature many technical upgrades, but the package includes all previously released DLC, and there’s some new story content to enjoy.

We’re also excited to play Ghostrunner, the new first-person slasher game from One More Level and 3D Realms. And we dearly hope that Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues can live up to the standard set by its unexpectedly entertaining source material. Fingers crossed on that one.

Other new Nintendo eShop releases include Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm, Legends of Ethernal, and Barbearian. Here’s the full lineup of confirmed new Switch games. We’ll update this post with any late additions throughout the week.

Update: October 27 – Ghostrunner has been delayed to November.
