Nintendo Switch Adds Another Ton Of New Eshop Games This Week
There are a lot more games to play this week.
More games are out now for Nintendo Switch. It's another busy week for the hybrid console; a total of 20 titles arrive on the Eshop, the bulk of which released for the system on December 14.
Among the games available this week is Yooka-Laylee, the Banjo-Kazooie-style 3D platformer by Playtonic Games. The game makes its Switch debut several months after it released for other platforms, and it comes with all of the updates and improvements Playtonic rolled out recently, such as a new camera system and improved controls. The Switch version also boasts custom achievements, and up to four players can play Yooka-Laylee's mini-games using a single Joy-Con each. You can read more about the title in our Yooka-Laylee review.
Likewise making its Switch debut this week is Enter the Gungeon, the 2016 dungeon-crawler/bullet hell game from Devolver Digital. The game features four protagonists, each of whom has their own unique abilities. Up to two players can team up to shoot their way through procedurally generated dungeons in an effort to find the Gungeon's ultimate treasure: a gun that can kill the past.
A number of other noteworthy titles are out now, as well, such as Gorogoa, a beautiful and inventive picture puzzle game which we thought was one of the coolest games you might've missed at E3 2017. There's also Mutant Mudds Collection, a compilation of the fun platformer Mutant Mudds and its sequel, Super Challenge, as well as the Mudd Blocks puzzle game. Other releases include the latest ACA Neo Geo game, The Last Blade; the retro-style style dungeon-crawler Hammerwatch; and the clever bridge-building game Poly Bridge.
Out earlier this week was The End Is Nigh, the harrowing new platformer from the creator of Super Meat Boy. Meanwhile, the remastered classic SNES RPG Romancing SaGa 2 arrives on December 15. You can see the full list of this week's Switch releases below.
