Nintendo Switch Adds 17 New Games To Eshop This Week
Here's what's new on the Eshop.
Nintendo Switch owners looking for something new to play on the console have a bunch of options to choose from now. A total of 17 games arrive on the Eshop this week, including the first Switch release from Fable creator Peter Molyneux's studio, 22Cans.
Headlining this week's releases is The Trail: Frontier Challenge, a stylish and leisurely adventure game by 22Cans. The Trail puts players in the role of a pioneer who embarks on a journey across an uncharted country. Players can choose a profession, craft items, and trade their wares with other players at campfires.
This week also sees the return of a couple of dormant franchises, although they may not be quite what fans were hoping for. First is Scribblenauts Showdown, a multiplayer-centric entry in the Scribblenauts series. It was released earlier this week alongside Fear Effect Sedna, a new sequel to the cult classic PS1 game Fear Effect. However, both games feature different gameplay than their predecessors; Scribblenauts trades level-based puzzles for multiplayer mini-games, while Fear Effect Sedna is a real-time tactical game set in isometric environments.
Other new Switch games out this week include the latest ACA Neo Geo game, Real Bout Fatal Fury; the action-platformer Bleed 2; the retro shoot-'em-up Steredenn: Binary Stars; the 8-bit roguelike Bit Dungeon Plus; and the RPG Earthlock. A handful of titles also arrive in the Eshop today, March 9, including platformer/roguelike Flinthook and the puzzler TurtlePop: Journey to Freedom. You can find the full list of this week's new Switch releases below.
Nintendo aired a new Direct presentation on March 8, which revealed a ton of new and upcoming games for both Switch and 3DS. Along with new details about Mario Tennis Aces, Nintendo announced a 3DS remake of Luigi's Mansion, a Dark Souls Amiibo and beta, and a Super Smash Bros. title for Switch.
