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: Super Mario 3D All-Stars

Nintendo Download: Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time

As we move into an uncertain fall for the Nintendo Switch (just announce the Mario re-releases already), we still have plenty of third-party games to get us by. The Nindies Showcase made sure to let us know the score, and for now, there's a...

Nintendo Download: Swimsanity

It's a wacky week for the Nintendo eShop, as we're getting with a "reasonable" 27-ish games debuting over the next several days: which is typically considered a light load when 30-40 games battle each other for sales. Swimsanity is pro...

Nintendo Download: Lost Wing

Nintendo warned us that things would be getting more low key later this year due to distribution and development issues due to the current global situation: and today is one of those days. There isn't much that's new on the eShop this week,...

It's a port-filled week for the Switch, as Nintendo eyes mid-July for their big release: Paper Mario: The Origami King. The big port this week is easily Catherine: Full Body, which itself is a 2019 re-release of a 2011 game. Full Body ...

Nintendo Download: Jump Rope Challenge

Does it feel like E3 week has come and gone? Not really, right? I mean we got the PS5 stream, but it's just not the same without a Nintendo Direct giving us that single piece of huge news that dominates the June conversation. Alas, there ar...

Nintendo Download: Summer in Mara

Following four weeks of huge/first-party releases in a row (Wonderful 101, Minecraft Dungeons, Xenoblade, Clubhouse Games), we're back to being low key this week on the eShop. Summer in Mara is easily the highlight this week (due on Ju...

Nintendo Download: Streets of Rage 4

We're back! This is probably the most poppin' week since Animal Crossing: New Horizons arrived, as the eShop has several unique offerings, a port that was actually released at the same time as other platforms and not years later, and a...
