New Nintendo Switch Games This Week Include Dragon Quest Builders

Here's what's new on Switch.


Nintendo Switch owners looking for something new to play have a lot of options to choose from right now, as another new batch of games has arrived on the Eshop. This week, Nintendo's hybrid console adds 13 more titles to its growing library, while a handful of great games already available for the system are now on sale in its digital store.

Headlining this week's new releases is Dragon Quest Builders. Unlike other installments in the series, Builders is a Minecraft-like sandbox adventure that tasks you with rebuilding the world of Alefgard by crafting buildings and other objects. The Switch version boasts "additional crafting options" not available in the original PS4 and Vita release, as well as an exclusive Great Sabrecub mount. You can read more about the title in our Dragon Quest Builders review.

In addition to Dragon Quest Builders, this week sees the release of two more classic Arcade Archives games, 2020 Super Baseball and Crazy Climber. Switch owners can also now pick up the fast-paced frisbee game Disc Jam; the Final Fantasy Tactics-like strategy RPG Mercenaries Saga Chronicles; and the inventive Metroid-like adventure game Dandara. A free demo for Pic-a-Pix Deluxe has also been added to the Eshop.

On top of this week's new titles, another sale has now begun in the Nintendo's digital store. For a limited time, Switch owners will be able to download a handful of great titles at a discount, including Rocket League, Golf Story, The Next Penelope, Retro City Rampage DX, Stikbold: A Dodgeball Adventure Deluxe, Inversus Deluxe, The Jackbox Party Pack 4, and more.

You can see the full list of this week's Switch releases below. Next week will be even busier for the console, with Owlboy, Bayonetta 2, Fe, The Longest Five Minutes, and Xeodrifter all launching within the span of a few days. The second batch of DLC for Fire Emblem Warriors also arrives next week, introducing three playable characters from Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon to the hack-and-slash game, along with new History maps, costumes, and more.
