Nintendo Switch Eshop Adds Three New Games This Week

Three retro-style action games are now available.


Following the release of Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, another handful of games has been added to the Nintendo Switch Eshop. This week sees three retro-style action games arrive in the console's digital store.

Headlining the batch of releases is the Gunvolt series compilation, Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack. This game combines the original Azure Striker Gunvolt and its sequel into one package, both of which now run at 60 FPS and have higher resolution visuals. In addition to those improvements, Striker Pack includes all of the DLC that was released for the two games and features HD Rumble and Switch Pro Controller support. The game is currently only available for Switch digitally for $40/£31.49, but players will have a chance to pick up a physical copy of Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack this October.

Like previous ACA Neo Geo titles, Zed Blade retails for $8/£6.29.

The final new Eshop game available now is League of Evil, an 8-bit platformer originally released for mobile devices.
