Nintendo Switch Eshop Gets 30 New Games This Week

Dark Souls, Starlink, and more have arrived.


If you're looking for something new to play on Nintendo Switch, you have a lot of options to choose from right now. On top of the latest batch of Switch Eshop deals, a total of 30 new titles have released for the console this week, and they include a couple of notable games that are definitely worth a look.

Headlining this week's releases is From Software's critically acclaimed Dark Souls Remastered. Originally intended to release alongside the PS4 and Xbox One versions back in May, the Switch edition was delayed until October 19. Like those versions, it includes the base game along with the Artorias of the Abyss DLC, plus the added benefit of being able to play it on the go. Switch owners can also pick up a Solaire of Astora Amiibo at GameStop.

Also out this week is Starlink: Battle for Atlas, the new spacefaring toys-to-life game from Ubisoft. In the vein of No Man's Sky, players are able to pilot a starship through the cosmos, exploring various planets and engaging in dogfights. You're also able to customize your ship on the fly by attaching weapons and other parts to the figure, which will automatically appear in-game. Finally, the Switch version features exclusive Star Fox crossover content.

Other notable releases this week include Lego DC Super-Villains; Sega's strategy RPG, Valkyria Chronicles; the shoot-'em-up I Hate Running Backwards; and the over-the-top pizza delivery/mech action game Pizza Titan Ultra. Sports fans can also pick up NBA 2K Playgrounds 2, while retro lovers have two new Arcade Archives games to choose from this week: Ninja-Kid II and Strikers 1945 Plus. You can see the full list of releases below.

October has been a busy month for Switch. Last week saw the release of Square Enix's cult-classic The World Ends With You: Final Remix, while Super Mario Party arrived the week before on October 5. Meanwhile, Splatoon 2 players can still grab some free DLC headwear; Nintendo is offering four Halloween-inspired masks in the game to celebrate the Splatoween event, which runs from October 19-21.
