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 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...

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,...
