Nintendo Switch fans already know the console can be docked to a television or taken anywhere for a completely portable experience. But this week’s Nintendo Download is taking it somewhere new… slithering along the ground.
That’s because Snake Pass, developed by Sumo Digital, which is now available to download from the Nintendo eShop. Switch owners will need to “think like a snake” as they solve environmental puzzles by slithering through long grass, coiling around bamboo, or climbing out of trouble. Switch owners will also have the chance to download Metal Slug, the first game in SNK’s side-scrolling shooter franchise, this week.
Finally this week, Captain Olimar and his Pikmin will explore more alien worlds in the Wii U re-release of the Wii re-release of Pikmin 2.
You can learn more about all of this week’s new additions to the Nintendo eShop after the break.
