Nintendo Download: Werewolf: The Apocalypse

First things first: this is not a revival of Bloody Roar. Nor is it a werewolf action game of any kind! Instead, it's based on the tabletop game by White Wolf Publishing, which was originally released in the '90s and is still alive and kick...

55 'hidden gems' released on the Switch eShop in 2020

It feels like only yesterday I was booting up the Wii Shop Channel and seeing five, maybe even six games released that week. It wasn't though. That was all the way back in 2009, which is essentially a lifetime ago by game industry standards...

Nintendo Download: Welcome to the New Year

It's going to be a weird year with 2020 in our rear view mirror, I'll tell you that much. But for now: Switch games! There isn't a whole lot here today, as Nintendo isn't featuring anything in particular outside of the Crash Team Racing Nit...

Nintendo Download: Bit.Trip

I feel like saying that a "low key week" for a late-in-the-year Nintendo Download issue is commonplace: but this time, it's extremely low key. It's Christmas Eve! Happy holidays! A lot of folks are busy thinking about presents tomorrow or l...

Nintendo Download: Super Meat Boy Forever

There's a few third-party releases left in the eShop! Super Meat Boy Forever just got a release date recently, and thankfully, the Switch will join the PC with a December 23 launch. Beyond that, it's a very low key week for the Nintend...

Developers can no longer scum eShop charts with free games

This story requires a bit of background, so let's get into it. A few months back, a number of indie developers called out the state of the Nintendo Switch eShop for myriad reasons. Stating that it was falling into a collective state of mobi...

Nintendo Download: Doom Eternal

I've said it many times, but Nintendo's push holiday push for the Switch seemed to end with Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. But that doesn't mean third parties are slouching. Doom Eternal is probably the biggest release for the Switc...

The Switch is getting a free eShop shmup after Christmas

Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon? - Infinite Combate was released earlier this year in the US, but it did not initially come with its special shmup companion game: Is It Wrong To Try To Shoot ’em Up Girls In A Dungeon?...

Nintendo Download: Empire of Sin

Happy thanksgiving! It's time for some games. Or not, maybe you already spent all your cash on the Series X or PS5. Or, maybe you just play on Nintendo Switch. Either way, there's stuff. There's always stuff! A surprising amount of stuff ou...

Nintendo Download: Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

The time has come! It's another first-party Nintendo game release! Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is out on November 20, serving as a prequel for the beloved modern classic Breath of the Wild. Now that it's finally being unleash...

Nintendo Download: Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory

This week the shining star of the Switch eShop is easily Kingdom Hearts; Melody of Memory, the new rhythm game in a recent line of rhythm romps from Square Enix. Amazingly, the Switch edition is actually getting an extra feature: You c...

Nintendo Download: Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin

We're so close to the next generation: but Nintendo doesn't care! For them, "next-gen" arrived three years ago, but truthfully, Nintendo kind of skates around the idea of "generations" anyway. They do what they do, they (generally) sell a t...

Nintendo Download: Pikmin 3 Deluxe

Pikmin is back! In Switch form! Alas, Pikmin 3 is the latest game to get an update on the Switch, as Nintendo tries to move every single game possible from the Wii U to their newer, successful system. Not "more successful," mind. Just ...

Nintendo Download: Pokemon Sword and Shield: The Crown Tundra

As we enter winter 2020 for real soon enough, the marquee game on the Switch this week is the very model of a winter wonderland: The Red Lantern. Of course while it is wondrous it's also treacherous, as you'll need to survive the cold with ...

Nintendo Download: Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit

It's a bit of an unconventional week for Nintendo's eShop, as the top game is actually a pseudo-app of sorts! The culprit is none other than Mario Kart Live: the hybrid augmented reality real-life kart toy that allows players to run a machi...

Nintendo Download: Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero?

Everyone is packing in the Switch eShop releases for the holidays! It's a huge day today with over 40 games hitting the marketplace: good luck sorting through them all. The marquee releases this time around are I Am Dead, The Survivalists, ...

Nintendo Download: Super Mario Bros. 35

A first-party Nintendo game is out today! As long as you're okay with battle royales. And micro-eShop games that have limited windows. And...have Switch Online. Wait, come back! Yep, Super Mario Bros. 35 is definitely the headliner tod...

Nintendo Download: Kirby Fighters 2

Well, Nintendo did it again: they unleashed a "surprise, it's out!" game. You can now buy Kirby Fighters 2 on Switch (RIP 3DS), alongside of Going Under and Embracelet. Nintendo also reminds us that Rocket League is now free-...
