Nintendo Switch Eshop Adds A Cult Of Personality, Arcade Management, And 30+ Games This Week

This week's new Nintendo eShop games cater to wannabe cult leaders, educators, and retro enthusiasts.


The week might almost be over, but if you've been looking to update your Nintendo Switch library, then you can find plenty of new games to add to your collection. From dark humor cult worship to higher education management and retro arcade dreams, here's a look at some of the highlights you can find on the Nintendo eShop right now.

Cult of the Lamb is easily the biggest release of the week, as it combines adorable aesthetics with dark and demented gameplay to create a uniquely disturbing experience. Cute, but also chilling and hard to put down as you guide a vengeful sheep in a quest to form a new flock of followers that can help it destroy ancient gods.

Now Playing: Cult of the Lamb Video Review

"Nine times out of 10, being a lamb led to the slaughter is not the best position to find yourself in," Jessica Howard wrote in GameSpot's Cult of the Lamb review. "That tenth time, however, is while playing Massive Monster's Cult of the Lamb, a delightfully demented roguelike that combines fast-paced dungeoneering, bold art, dark topics, and real-time simulation elements to create a one-of-a-kind experience."

If you're looking for a more relaxing game, Two Point Campus should scratch that itch. Following in the same footsteps as Two Point Hospital, this new game from Two Point Studios tasks you with setting up an institution of higher learning and using it to shape the next generation of scientists and critical thinkers. While making a healthy profit in the process, of course.

In GameSpot's Two Point Campus review, Richard Wakeling described the game as "a marked improvement on Two Point Hospital" that's full of charm and wit. To get a headstart, you can check out Two Point Campus tips for beginners, how to make students happy, and how to increase your students level.

Another game worth checking out this week is Arcade Paradise, a ’90s-themed retro arcade game and light-management sim. You'll need to manage the day-to-day tasks of running the family laundromat, but at night, you're free to build your very own arcade with all the profits you've earned.
