Nintendo Switch owners have tons of options this week.

9 Comments

Stop me if you've heard this before, but this episode of New Releases has a bunch of exciting games for Nintendo Switch owners. The portable console is getting ports of Overwatch and The Witcher 3, plus some new experiences. The workout-focused Ring Fit Adventure and the cutesy RPG Little Town Hero both launch this week too. Meanwhile, PS4, Xbox One, and PC gamers can get their hands on Plants vs. Zombies: Battle For Neighborville.

Overwatch: Legendary Edition -- October 15

Available on: Switch

No Caption Provided

This edition of Blizzard's hero shooter includes the main game and 15 bonus skins. Since new heroes are added to the game for free, you can jump right in and choose from 31 different tank, damage, and support characters. The Legendary Edition also includes three months of Nintendo Switch Online multiplayer for those who've yet to sign up for the service.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Complete Edition -- October 15

Available on: Switch

No Caption Provided

This version of The Witcher 3 includes Geralt's 2015 adventure plus all previously released DLC and two full expansions: Hearts of Stone and Blood & Wine. Altogether, that's potentially hundreds of hours of RPG questing and monster-slaying to dig into. Not bad for a port that came together in just 12 months.

Little Town Hero -- October 16

Available on: Switch

No Caption Provided

Little Town Hero comes from Game Freak, best known for the Pokemon series. This RPG is set in a single town that the citizens never leave...until monsters start showing up. Little Town Hero's combat doesn't rely on grinding--it's all about strategizing at whatever power level you've currently reached. Also the soundtrack is composed by Undertale creator Toby Fox, so that's pretty rad.

Ring Fit Adventure -- October 18

Available on: Switch

No Caption Provided

Ring Fit Adventure is a follow-up to Wii Fit, but with more ways to actually get you up and moving. Ring Fit includes an adventure mode, custom workout playlists, and minigames, all of which are played using the new Ring-Con peripheral and leg strap. Prepare for some serious sweat.

Plants vs. Zombies: Battle For Neighborville -- October 18

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC

No Caption Provided

Battle for Neighborville is the latest in the Plants vs Zombies shooter series, once again pitting the fighting flora against the living dead. This entry includes three new classes for both the plants and zombies, plus a new team-up option that lets two troopers combine into a stronger unit. You can hop into competitive multiplayer modes or explore Neighborville itself in co-op.

More Coverage:

October has more remasters to come, including MediEvil next week. The next episode of New Releases will take a look at that re-release, plus some hotly anticipated new titles like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and The Outer Worlds.

No love for The Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Pack and Planescape: Torment / Icewind Dale Pack for consoles on Oct 15th?

It's going to own my life until Outer World's comes out later this month.

Good to hear that Switch users are finally getting to experience what it seems like everyone else has already in the way of the Witcher 3.

Speaking of, seeing as how that title is ported around everywhere now I wonder if we will see it once again making some kind of appearance (whether it be remastered format or whatever.) in the next gen of consoles.

It seems like this last gen was notorious for being the “remaster/remake gen” and I wouldn’t be surprised if it bled its way into the likes of the PS5/NeXtbox. Perhaps one day we may even see a “Resident Evil 2” style full remake.

@videogameninja: I refuse to pay money for anything Witcher related until that buffoon of a writer publicly apologizes to CD Projekt for his contempt of their hard work. If it wasn't for them there wouldn't be a Netflix show and nobody would even hear of his books.

Witcher 3 runs pretty well on Nintendo Switch docked I was expecting it to be full on potato 540p but the models look pretty good. It looks like a PC running it on low settings.
