This week’s eShop update is live and while it may not be as good as last weeks, there are some news-worthy additions. It’s ports week over on Switch as Jackbox Party Packs 1&2 arrive alongside TellTales Minecraft Story mode. 3DS get’s the noteworthy new-addition of Chicken Wiggle. You might know the developer Jools Watsham from his time as one-half of Renegade Kid, the makers of Mutant Mudds, Dementium, and Xeodrifter. Reviews thus far have been pretty positive, including this one from our #PodernFamily member Bobby Pauls aka. The Nintendo Guru
