Nintendo Switch Adds 15 New Eshop Games This Week

Here's what games Switch owners can pick up this week.


Nintendo Switch owners looking for something new to play have a lot of options to choose from. A bunch of new games are now available in the Switch Eshop, and they consist of 15 titles that have rolled out over the past week.

Along with two classic Arcade Archives games, World Heroes 2 and Kid Niki: Radical Ninja, this week's batch of releases includes Celeste, a challenging, retro-style platformer from TowerFall developer Matt Makes Games. Switch owners can also pick up Space Dave, the spiritual successor to Woah Dave; the twin-stick shoot-'em-up Tachyon Project; the frantic platformer Super One More Jump; the action-RPG Fantasy Hero: Unsigned Legacy, by Dragon Ball FighterZ developer Arc System Works; and the Minecraft-style hostage rescue game Dustoff Heli Rescue 2.


In addition to the above titles, a pair of games released for Switch earlier this week, on January 23: the beautiful side-scrolling platformer Shu and the traditional RPG Lost Sphear. The latter is the second title by Tokyo RPG Factory, the developer behind the Chrono Trigger-inspired I Am Setsuna. This week also saw the release of ChromaGun, a Portal-like game in which you use the titular ChromaGun to solve puzzles by shooting different colors at objects.

You can find the full list of this week's new Nintendo Switch releases below. At least one notable title is in store for the system next week: the critically acclaimed adventure game Night in the Woods, which launches for Switch on February 1. A number of other high-profile titles are also coming to the system next month, including Dragon Quest Builders, Fe, and Bayonetta 2.
