HOLY $@#% what a week on that Nintendo Switch eShop. It didn’t dawn on me until I put them all in one list, but this might be the best 3rd party eShop week for a Nintendo system ever or at least in years. Let’s start with the return of Rockstar on a Nintendo console in LA Noire, which isn’t the game I want (GTAV ROCKSTAR!) but still its a game that fits a genre not readily available. Then comes DOOM, the high acclaimed shooter from Bethesda also fills in a mature shooter space that’s lacking on Switch. And to round off this week’s triple header we also receive Rocket League, the perfect for switch get up and go multiplayer soccer with cars game.
Wow, what a week. Almost makes it seem insignificant to also state that Mario Party: The Top 100 is also out, Batman the TellTale series, Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2, Rime, Uno, Ittle Dew…. That is a lot to choose from, Spend that eShop credit wisely.
