      Nintendo Switch eShop got a very good, very small update



      Nintendo continues to slowly right the system






      Nintendo Switch eShop updated this week to add a new section: Games on Sale. It’s a seemingly minor change that, when you think about it, says a lot about what Nintendo is doing with its hybrid console.
      Imgur via RedditFor one, the company is starting to slowly catch on to how to run the storefront in a way that best serves its customers. Of course the eShop should have a place where we can find what’s on sale; that’s a common, expected category. Although the area is sparse right now, with nearly 500 Switch games already available, we expect the section to eventually become a useful place to sift through for some good deals. Other updates post-launch include a top sellers chart, another simple but effective filter.
      On the other hand, the operative word here is “slowly.” Nintendo really is taking its time befitting the Switch with all of the features we expected it to have, right out of the gate. Its online service still hasn’t launched in full, but we do at least have voice chat; the Virtual Console remains a big question mark; a Miiverse replacement seems unlikely as the months continue on.
      But hey, at least the Nintendo Switch eShop has a sales section now. That’s definitely progress in the right direction, small it may be.

      Nintendo Switch eShop’s final 2017 update goes out with a whimperThis week’s Nintendo Switch eShop update — the last one of the year — is a bit disappointing compared to recent weeks. But, in fairness, the eShop has received more than 50 games throughout the month of December, so consider this week’s dearth as encouragement to plow through your backlog.Most notable this week is the release of SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition, an updated version of the fan-favorite, turn-based strategy game. This marks SteamWorld Heist’s Switch debut, two years after it first won acclaim on Nintendo 3DS. The Ultimate Edition includes the game’s previously released downloadable content right out of the gate, as well as a new campaign.SteamWorld aside, things are ... pretty dry out there. Nintendo’s pumping up some of last week’s late-breaking releases, including Arcade Archives VS. Super Mario Bros., an $8 re-release of the arcade-exclusive version of Super Mario Bros. While it’s easy to see this as a pricy port of a widely available game, VS. Super Mario Bros. is infamously tougher than the NES original. There are fewer collectibles, even early on in the game, and enemies are way more durable.The game launched on Switch eShop on Dec. 22, just before Christmas, but if you missed it over the holiday period, VS. Super Mario Bros. is both a rare port and infuriatingly tough, by most accounts.Otherwise, check out previous weeks’ updates and pick up something new. Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King is a Zelda-esque role-playing game that’s winning a lot of praise since its launch last week. I’m personally still obsessed with the hidden-object puzzler Mom Hid My Game!, which is so endearingly silly and fun despite its brevity. I’ve heard some very good things about the unique rhythm game Floor Kids as well.And hey, if you haven’t beaten The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild yet, there’s always that, too.

      Bayonetta returns for a stellar week on Nintendo Switch eShop




      Reacquaint yourself with Bayonetta, and introduce yourself to Fe








      After last week’s small-ish update, Nintendo Switch eShop has received what may be more high-profile games than any of us know what to do with. Between an exciting re-release, a totally new property and then some, Switch owners may find themselves either making a tough, miserly choice ... or just shelling out a bunch o’ cash.
      First thing’s first: Bayonetta and its sequel launch on Switch this Friday, Feb. 16. This is a major deal for both fans of these action games already and anyone interested in getting in them, now that we know a third entry is coming. While Bayonetta 2 brought the first game along for the ride when it launched as a Wii U exclusive, the Switch version gives owners a chance to replay them on the go — and playing around with the witch’s extremely rad gunboots and punishing weave in public.
      If you buying both games through the eShop (at any point; not just at the same time), you’ll get them at a discounted price. We’d be remiss not to mention that these Bayonetta ports don’t differ much from the Wii U versions, as far as we know, however. But to have the full series on one system will be nice, although Bayonetta 3 is still a ways out.
      And now for something completely different: Electronic Arts’ pretty platformer Fe isn’t a Switch-exclusive, but it’s a fitting release for the console. Players embody a fox ... thing (?) that uses an intimate connection with the natural world to explore. We have yet to discovermuch more of Fe’s secrets and world quite yet. It’s also out on Feb. 16.
      The rest of the list is below, and you’ll recognize a few other names on it: We dug Old Man’s Journey when it hit PC and mobile platforms last year, and Puzzle Puppers was one of our favorite indie games of 2017. Layers of Fear: Legacy, meanwhile, is a hard left turn from the rest, in that it’s an extremely disturbing horror game. But the Switch eShop doesn’t discriminate, clearly — especially not this week.

      Nintendo Switch eShop gets cult favorites you might have missed



      It’s worth giving these games another look







      You may not be familiar with many of the names in this week’s Nintendo eShop, but now’s a great time to get acquainted with them. While the update is headlined by titles likeanother entry in the Scribblenauts series, the surprise release of Outlast and the return of Fear Effect, it’s the more niche ports that most demand your attention.
      Out today is Subsurface Circular, which Bithell Games launched on Steam last year with little warning. It’s an interactive short story that depends on dialogue-based puzzles, as you explore a mysterious world in which robots live among humans. It’s a marked change from Volume, Bithell Games’ stylish stealth adventure from 2015, but Subsurface Circularis just as worth a playthrough.
      There’s also a Switch version of A Normal Lost Phone, the first in a pair of mobile games that turn your smartphone into someone else’s. Taking possession of an unlocked, abandoned phone, you sift through its files and applications to figure out who and where its owner is. It may sound voyeuristic — especially since A Normal Lost Phone’s story deals with a teenager’s disappearance — but we still found the Lost Phone games to be some of 2017’s most fascinating. (It’ll be interesting to see how the smartphone interface translates to Switch, though.)
      And then there’s Detention, a Taiwan-based horror game that has only grown its cult fan base since it launched last January. Survival horror somehow seems scarier when it’s presented as a 2D side-scroller, and this one has some creepily beautiful visuals to boot. On Steam, more than 5,000 reviewers have highly recommended this game for how it turns its high school setting into an absolute nightmare.
      The full list of Switch eShop games and demos coming through next Wednesday is below.

      Nintendo Switch eShop update brings the cuteness and the waterworks



      Kirby’s here — and so is one of 2017’s most underrated, moving games





      This is a Nintendo eShop update that fans can get sucked into — because there’s a new Kirby game out this week, his first for Nintendo Switch. (Get it? “Sucked into”? Because Kirby? Oh my god I’m so sorry I don’t know why I’m like this.)
      While Kirby Star Allies, out on March 16, is an obvious choice to headline the latest batch of Nintendo Switch eShop games, there’s at least one other game worth our attention that shouldn’t get lost in the fold. Last Day of June launched on PlayStation 4 and Windows PC last year to critical acclaim, but its new Switch version gives those of us who missed out a second chance to discover it.
      Last Day of June is a story-heavy adventure game about death and time travel. It’s incredibly sad, especially if you’ve ever loved and lost. But it’s not one of those indies that forgoes engrossing gameplay to tell that moving story. Last Day of June is rife with puzzles to solve, challenging players to become more involved in its big-headed characters, watercolor world and dialogue-free writing. And as our reviewer put it last year, “There’ve been maybe five games in my life that have made me cry. This is one.”
      The friendship-focused Kirby Star Allies might make us cry too, since it’s all smiles and hugs and sweets. What we appreciate most, though, is that Kirby’s cutesy multiplayer titleis launching alongside this devastatingly sad indie that we may have missed out on. This seems like some good counter-programming on Nintendo’s part.
      Here’s the full list of eShop releases through next Thursday, March 21.

      Detective Pikachu and Outlast 2 make an unlikely pair in this week’s Nintendo eShop update



      This is not one of those peanut butter and chocolate situations





      Nintendo’s Nindies independent game showcase may have been brief, but this week’s eShop update runs long.
      The big release this week is Detective Pikachu on Nintendo 3DS. That game stars the pint-sized yellow Pokémon as a gumshoe, complete with a dashing deerstalker cap. From our story in February:
      We already know that a deep-voiced, English-speaking Pikachu travels with teen boy Tim to help out a variety of Pokémon in need. (Tim’s mostly in it to get this Pikachu to find his missing father, which ... well, we’ll just go with it.) But it sounds like Tim is getting a bunch of the credit for Pikachu’s work — work that involves an absurd amount of dancing Pokémon, solving jigsaw puzzles and, uh, even invading other Pokémon’s privacy.
      Detective Pikachu will be available on March 23.
      All the way on the other end of the spectrum is Outlast 2, a game that gave our reviewer serious and actual panic attacks. This horror game pits an independent cameraman against a Jonestown-esque religious cult in the search for his abducted wife. The game — which is absolutely not for children or, possibly, anyone who attended Catholic school — will be available for Nintendo Switch on March 27.



      Other new titles include the following:
      The Alliance Alive — available March 27
      OPUS: Rocket of Whispers
      ACA NeoGeo World Heroes 2 Jet
      Arcade Archives Moon Patrol
      Castle of Heart — available March 23
      Eat Beat Deadspike-san
      Gekido Kintaro’s Revenge
      Metropolis: Lux Obscura — demo dersion, available March 27
      No Thing
      Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut
      Sol Divide Sword of Darkness
      Warp Shift — available March 27

      Nintendo Switch eShop sales beat new releases this week



      Look to the Nintendo Switch games you missed






      Nintendo Switch eShop doesn’t have a ton of exciting new games out this week — no offense to perfectly serviceable arcade ports, like Johnny Turbo’s Arcade: Bad Dudes andArcade Archives: Punch Out!!. But there are ongoing eShop sales that are worth taking a look at, making this week a better time to pad out the missing pieces of your Switch collection.
      Highlights among the games on sale include Snake Pass ($9.99, down from $19.99), a platformer whose recent update brought a new mode and a much nicer home menu icon;Thumper, the intense rhythm game that continues to entrance us ($11.99, down from $19.99); Kamiko, a short action game that features some beautiful pixel art ($2.99, down from $4.99); and The Jackbox Party Pack 2, the best of the series and an essential multiplayer game ($16.24, down from $24.99).
      Many of these sale prices are only good through 12 p.m. ET today, although some extend through next week. Check out the Nintendo eShop sales page for the whole list.
      And here are the new games, should you rather pick up one of those:
