Nintendo Download: Metro 2033 and Last Light Redux

Wow, it's a hot week for the Nintendo eShop! As I've been saying like a broken record for weeks now we've been getting over the post-holiday slump, but now we're back in full gear. There's 46 games dropping on the eShop this week, a far cry...

Nintendo Download: Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition

The time has come: nearly every genre and facet of the eShop is getting some love today. Even the Wii U! The huge game this week is indubitably Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition, which comes with all sorts of extras. The Mega Man Zero/ZX Lega...

Nintendo Download: Snack World: The Dungeon Crawl - Gold

It's an odd week for the Switch eShop and a make-or-break one, depending on how this wacky Level-5 headliner goes. Snack World: The Dungeon Crawl - Gold, a reworked Switch port of a franchise that started back in 2016, is the main squeeze, ...

Nintendo Download: Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales

Welcome to another semi-packed week on the Nintendo eShop. There's a major headliner here: Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, which arrived back in November of 2018 on other platforms. CD Projekt Red smartly knows that they have their hooks ...

Nintendo Download: Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition

We're back, baby! The holiday lull is officially over as the eShop is back in full swing. Sega is even getting in on the action with two new "Ages" titles, as well as a pair of 3DS games and over 30 other titles. The big-ticket releases are...

Nintendo Download: Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE Encore

Now we're talking! There was a huge slump from mid-December through now, but Nintendo, like the rest of the industry, is kicking into high(ish) gear starting this week. The big draw is Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE Encore, which arrives tom...

Nintendo Download: A bunch of Atelier games

After a huge Pokemon info dump this morning, it's back to business as usual for the eShop. Those Sword and Shield expansions aren't coming until later this year, but for now you have a ton of Atelier games to sift through as ...

Nintendo Download: The extreme calm before the 2020 storm

If you thought last week was a chill period for the eShop, you ain't seen nothin' yet. This week Nintendo and pretty much everyone else is biding their time to get through the holiday season after every already spent their pre-holiday cash ...

Nintendo Download: Deponia Doomsday

In what is easily one of the most (understandably) barebones eShop release weeks to date, there's very few actual games being released on Switch, and none on other platforms. The highlight is easily the arrival of two more games in the ...

Nintendo Download: Star Fox 2

We've reached the end of the line. The December rush is over, and now we're getting a ton of shovelware as all of the really big games have come out already in the hopes of becoming Christmas presents. Smartly, a few of the really obscure g...

Nintendo Download: Jamestown+

We've done it. We've reached the last batch of eShop releases before the end of the year, as only a few more indies are being pushed out after everyone already spent their holiday cash. Shovel Knight: King of Cards was the highlight la...

Nintendo Download: Shovel Knight: King of Cards

This is it, don't get scared now. 2019 is coming to an end. Oh no! At least we have a ton of amazing things lined up for 2020, as well as two new console launches (PS4/Scarlett). It's going to be a crazy year. For now, we have to wrap up th...

Nintendo Download: Trover Saves The Universe

We've officially reached the winter lull. Most of the big games that are going to be released in 2019 are out, with the exception of a few (on Switch, it's basically just Shovel Knight's last pair of expansions). There are a few notable add...

Nintendo Download: The Touryst

Nintendo kind of went all-out last week with Pokemon Sword and Shield, which are already selling incredibly well. As a result a little bit of a lull: a pre-holiday cooldown period, if you will, is in order. You see pretty much every major r...

Nintendo Download: Pokemon Sword and Shield

This week all eyes are on Pokemon Sword & Shield, as actual hands-on gameplay will ultimately decide the fate of this generation: not leaks. Both games are arriving separately of course, but there's also a Double Pack, and the special S...

Nintendo Download: Layton's Mystery Journey

The big one today is Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy Deluxe Edition, a Switch port of a mobile game that continued the Layton tale with his daughter in charge. The Switch is getting a few more heavy...

Nintendo Download: Luigi's Mansion 3

Luigi's Mansion 3 is clearly the big release today, on this spookiest of days. As for the other big marquee eShop titles: Just Dance 2020 and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 are out on November 5, ...

Nintendo Download: Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD

Another month, another set of questionable to serviceable ports on Switch. Resident Evil 5 and 6 are rolling onto the platform with potentially lingering demo performance issues, which are hopefully resolved at some point. They are joi...

Nintendo Download: Return of the Obra Dinn

There's been little to no fanfare for Little Town Hero, a new Game Freak RPG that's coming exclusively to Switch today, but hey, it's coming out at least! It's priced at $24.99. Also on Switch this coming week is indie darling Return of the...

Nintendo Download: Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair

Today the Switch welcomes yet another major release: Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair. Other than that it's a whole lot of indies, ports, and re-releases, but that's usually not a bad thing! This coming week the Switch is also getting N...

Nintendo Download: Ori and the Blind Forest

Nintendo is killing it with some marquee eShop releases this past month, and this week continues that good streak. The highlights? Dragon Quest XI S and Ori and the Blind Forest. This week also welcomes Freedom Finger, FIFA 20 Legacy Editio...
