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 ...

The most woefully under-exposed Switch eShop games of 2019

When Nintendo first entered the fray of online storefronts with the Wii Shop Channel, you were lucky to get one great game a month on the service. The scarcity of high-profile, critically acclaimed titles helped standouts like World of Goo,...

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...

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: 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...

It's port week for the Switch! Overwatch and The Witcher 3 are the big ones, but Killer Queen is also getting ported from the popular arcade format to Switch. Also on the eShop this week: Little Town Hero (October 16), A...
