The Nintendo eShop continues to grow by leaps and bounds on the Switch.
This week, fans of the console can download Enter the Gungeon, a critically-acclaimed twin-stick shooter from Dodge Roll Games. Also available this week is Yooka-Laylee, a 3D platformer from a team of developers that was responsible for the Banjo-Kazooie franchise. Square Enix will bring back Romancing SaGa 2, a turn-based RPG originally released for the Super NES, in an enhanced remake. And Atooi will bundle together the Mutant Mudds Collection for Nintendo’s newest console.
Elsewhere on the Switch’s digital storefront, you’ll find Never Stop Sneakin’ this week. Developed by Humble Hearts, Never Stop Sneakin’ is a comedic homage to PSone-era stealth games like Metal Gear Solid. Switch owners will also get a double dose of pinball with the launch of both Pinball FX3 and Stern Pinball Arcade.
You can learn more about the rest of this week’s additions to the Nintendo eShop after the break.
