Now Playing: Zelda And Mario Nintendo Switch D-Pad Controllers Now Available For Pre-Order - GS News Update

A bunch of new games are now available for Nintendo Switch. This week brings a total of 19 titles to Nintendo's hybrid console, along with a new batch of DLC for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and the second major update for Kirby Star Allies.

Headlining this week's releases are Mega Man X Legacy Collections 1+2, two compilations encompassing the entire Mega Man X series. Each collection can be purchased separately from the Eshop for $20 or together in one physical package for $40. If you decide to spring for the latter, be aware that only the first will be available on the game card; the second collection is packed in as a download code. You can learn more in our Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2 review.

This week's other major release is The Banner Saga 3, the third and final chapter in the critically acclaimed strategy RPG series. This installment features new playable characters as well as a new waves battles, and those who've played the previous two titles can carry their save data over. GameSpot awarded it an 8/10 in our Banner Saga 3 review and called the game "a worthwhile and cathartic end to your long journey."

Also available for Switch this week is the minigame compilation Go Vacation; two more classic Arcade Archives games, The King of Fighters '97 and Omega Fighter; the stylish 2D platformer Semblance; and the '80s-inspired RPG Crossing Souls. You can see the full list of this week's releases below.

In addition to these titles, a new set of DLC is available for players who've purchased Xenoblade Chronicles 2's expansion pass. This batch introduces a new Rare Blade to the game named Crossette (who comes with her own Core Crystal to ensure she is summoned), as well as a custom difficulty option and the fourth and final selection of DLC quests.

Finally, Nintendo has released a new update for Kirby Star Allies. This one introduces three more Dream Friends to the game: Daroach, the villain of Kirby Squeak Squad; Dark Meta Knight from Kirby & The Amazing Mirror; and Adeleine & Ribbon from Kirby 64. The update is available for free for everyone who owns the game.
