Another batch of new games has been released on the Nintendo Switch Eshop. This week is a particularly busy one for the hybrid console; a total of 22 games launch for the system throughout the week, many of which are certainly worth a look if you need something new to play.
As usual, the bulk of this week’s releases arrive on Thursday, December 7. While there aren’t any major first- or third-party titles among the bunch, there are plenty of new and acclaimed games to choose from. Some of the highlights include the mystery game The Sexy Brutale; the classic shoot-’em-up Gunbird; the puzzle-platformer Teslagrad; the stylish breakdancing game Floor Kids; the side-scrolling adventure game Embers of Mirrim; the latest ACA Neo Geo classic, Top Hunter: Roddy & Cathy; and the ridiculous physics game, Human: Fall Flat.
Other Switch releases this week include WWE 2K18, which launched for the console on December 6. 2K18 marks the first WWE game to release for a Nintendo system in five years, and it boasts all of the same major features as the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions of the game do. The day before that saw a pair of releases arrive on the Eshop: the beautiful co-op action-RPG Nine Parchments, and the co-op side-scrolling platformer Caveman Warriors.
In addition to the aforementioned games, a free demo of Lost Sphear, the next classic-inspired RPG by I Am Setsuna developer Tokyo RPG Factory, has been added to the Eshop, and Switch owners can now pre-load Playtonic’s retro 3D platformer Yooka-Laylee, which releases for the console on December 14.
