Nintendo Switch EShop Adds Another New Game Today

Metal Slug joins the fray.


The Nintendo Switch's lineup of digital games grows a bit further today in the US with the system's third new game of the week.

Today's release is the classic game Metal Slug. It comes as part of the ACA NeoGeo series, of which there are now nine on the eShop--including another game from the franchise, Metal Slug 3. You can pick up any of the NeoGeo games, including Metal Slug, for $8 (£6.29) from the eShop.

This is the third new game of the week on the eShop. Unlike Metal Slug, which is a port of an existing game, the other two were completely new: Has-Been Heroes and Snake Pass. Each of those costs $20 (or £16 for Snake Pass; the former hasn't been released in the UK yet).

We've seen at least a few games debut on the eShop each week since the Switch's launch earlier this month. Last week saw a trio of games, while the week prior was highlighted by The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+.
