New Games Have Been Added to the Nintendo Switch eShop (VIDEO)
If players have already explored and conquered the massive map contained within The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, they might be pleased to hear that more games have been added to the Nintendo Switch eShop. Over the past week, a few new titles have hit the digital store to enrich the experience of those playing on the new console. It all lead up to what might be the most anticipated release since the system’s launch: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Let’s take a look at what has become available!
The first title to hit the Switch eShop is the ACA Neo Geo re-release of Over Top. “Players will participate in breathtaking races through urban areas, mountainous regions, and snowy roads. The courses also feature weather variations to add more variety to the game.” What made this game special upon its initial launch in 1996 was the beautiful transition from one area to the next. Over Top can be purchased for $8 right here, and a gallery can be seen below:
The next two video games to be released on the Nintendo Switch eShop are Kamiko and Puyo Puyo Tetris. The former is a retro-style action title that is “styled around Japanese Shinto beliefs.” Players will exchange blows “as priestesses called “KAMIKO” and battle against demons while solving puzzles to make your way through the stages.” Gamers can pick up Kamiko for $5 here. Check out the action below in the gallery:
The latter of the previous two games mentioned is Puyo Puyo Tetris. This title blends the “two puzzle game juggernauts,” Tetris and Puyo Puyo from SEGA, and aims to provide “a fun-to-play, fast-paced, competitive party game like no other!” Players will have several ways to enjoy the game, such as a single-player adventure mode, local co-op arcade, a handful of online multiplayer modes, and a solo arcade, which will pit you against CPU opponents. Puyo Puyo Tetris can be purchased for $40 on the Switch eShop, and a video of the fun is provided below:
This all lead up to the game that Switch owners have been waiting for since the console’s release. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe launched on Friday, April 28, and it has been skyrocketing to the top of the charts in such a short amount of time. The port of the Wii U title has been improved with a little polish, new content, and the inclusion of all DLC from the prior version. Turn friends into enemies while you battle your way through the myriad of courses as your favorite characters, but be on the lookout for that dreaded blue shell. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is available in stores, but can also be purchased digitally for $60 right here. Check out all of the glorious action in the video below:
That may be it for what has been released in the past week, but more is on the way. TumbleSeed, the “deceptively deep roguelike about balancing a seed up a dangerous and ever-changing mountain,” is set to launch on Tuesday, May 2, and it will cost $15. Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition will be arriving on May 11, and will set players back $30.
