Nintendo Switch Eshop Adds 11 New Games This Week

Super Meat Boy, The Escapists 2, and more arrive on Switch this week.


Another batch of games have now arrived on the Nintendo Switch Eshop. This week, the digital storefront adds 11 new titles, the bulk of which are available beginning today, January 11.

Headlining this week's releases is Super Meat Boy, the critically acclaimed, ultra-challenging platformer by developer Team Meat. The Switch version boasts a new multiplayer split-screen Race Mode that allows two players to compete against each other through individual stages or the entire game. It's joined by the prison-escape game The Escapists 2, as well as the stylish sword-fighting game Furi.

Other notable titles out today include the latest ACA Neo Geo game, Art of Fighting 2; the drawn-to-life game Draw a Stickman: Epic 2; and free demos for Dragon Quest Builders and Forma 8. You can see every free demo Switch and 3DS owners can download today in our roundup. Those titles will be followed by a pair of games tomorrow, January 12: the bloody Bomberman-like game Brawl, and the match-three puzzler Azkend 2: The World Beneath, which was originally slated to release with last week's Eshop games.

You can find the full list of this week's Switch releases below. In addition to all the new titles, a New Year sale is still going on in the Eshop. Switch owners can get discounts on a handful of great games--such as Thumper, Thimbleweed Park, Severed, and more--until January 15. A separate Eshop sale is also still going on in Europe, which offers deals on a handful of first-party titles like Arms, 1-2-Switch, and Flip Wars.
