Nintendo surprise-released a new Nintendo Direct Mini presentation, and packed inside the announcements came another unexpected treat: a handful of surprise game releases, ready to buy right now through the Nintendo Switch Eshop if any of them strike your fancy.

Four new games hit the Eshop alongside the Direct Mini: Shinsekai: Into the Depths, Good Job, Panzer Dragoon: Remake, and Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. The presentation also mentioned that Star Wars: Episode 1 Racer is coming soon, so we may see that appear on the store in the near future.

Now Playing: Nintendo Direct Highlights: Animal Crossing, Super Smash Bros, & More

Shinsekai is a lovely underwater exploration game from Capcom that was a timed exclusive for Apple Arcade last year. Good Job is a puzzle game that has you working your way up the corporate ladder of a company. Panzer Dragoon and Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy are both remakes or ports of classics.

And while not exactly a new game release, the presentation also surprise-released a demo for Bravely Default 2, the upcoming RPG from Square Enix. So altogether you have plenty to play today. The wild action game Saints Row 4: Re-elected has now been released as well.

Other announcements from the Nintendo Direct Mini include a number of 2K compilations--namely Borderlands, BioShock, and XCOM--the next fighter reveal for Smash Bros, and details on the April update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
