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...

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: Super Mario 3D All-Stars

Last week, something weird happened: Nintendo spilled the beans about Hades arriving on Switch today. Shortly after sending out an email stating that it was coming soon, the company sent a retraction, stating that Hades was still ...

Nintendo Download: Hades

[Update: Nintendo has issued a follow-up statement to Destructoid to issue a "correction" for the Hades release date. It is now listed as "fall 2020."] Are you ready for the holiday season yet? If you're not picking up a next-gen syste...

Nintendo Download: NBA 2K21

We got a host of announcements from Nintendo this morning: but none of them are coming out this week. In fact, only one of them is coming out this month! For now, we have NBA 2K21 as the big release on September 4, as well as Spellbrea...

Behold! The Switch eShop has actual timers for sales now

Baby steps, people. Look, the eShop has remained mostly unchanged for over three years now. Despite Nintendo's initiative to add 30-40 games to it every week, causing tons of bloat, navigational efforts haven't really improved all that ...

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: Shaolin vs Wutang

It's an interesting week for the Nintendo Switch eShop, as a bunch of indies and fighting games are plopping down all at once. The more high-profile indies include Faeria, as well as Linn: Path of Orchards, which have already arrived on PC ...

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,...
