More and more games are being added to the Nintendo Switch eShop. This week 8 new games have been added, but they are all digital games – which seems to be the norm these days! You can find the Nintendo Switch Eshop additions below.
Yono and the Celestial Elephants Nintendo Switch
Elephants are powerful defenders of the world, born from the stars once per millennium. This is the age of Elephant Yono. But Yono is still so very young and in a realm occupied by feudalistic Humans, undead Bonewights and robotic Mekani, it’s not easy to keep one’s trunk out of trouble. Yono and the Celestial Elephant is an impressive adventure, featuring carefully planned puzzles, treasure hunts, a sprinkling of combat and a world full of people. Play as a young elephant tasked to save a world he’s never seen before, and investigate the rich history of a kingdom where humans, zombies and robots live side by side.
Wulverblade Nintendo Switch
Help Britannia defeat the Romans in Wulverblade – a hardcore side-scrolling beat ’em up inspired by the old arcade classics! Experience a historically inspired storyline across eight campaign levels – or test your skills in the game’s deadly arenas. Go it alone or team up with a friend in local two-player co-op. It’s time to show the Ninth Legion what you’re made of!
The King of Fighters ’95 Nintendo Switch
The game features a similar cast to KOF ’94 with the exception of the USA Team, which was replaced by the Rival Team. The plot features a new King of Fighters tournament once again promoted by the criminal Rugal Bernstein, who wants to take revenge against Kyo Kusanagi, who defeated him in last year’s tournament. The game also introduces a sub-boss character, Saisyu Kusanagi, who is the father of Kyo. KOF ’95 also introduces the fighter Iori Yagami, who becomes Kyo’s rival in the series.
The Flame in the Flood: Complete Edition Nintendo Switch
The player character is a young girl named Scout. Her only companion is a dog called Aesop, who can sense danger and fetch supplies. Scout uses a raft to traverse a large river, the result of an apocalyptic flood which has turned the land into a series of islands. The player must pay attention to Scout’s needs such as her energy, thirst, hunger, and warmth, and not paying attention to them can result in death. Like other roguelikes, death is permanent, although the player can restart at predetermined checkpoints along the river. There is a crafting system allowing the player to create new items. Players will also need to scavenge areas for valuable items. Factors such as the weather will impact the gameplay. Players are also able to create insulated clothing to protect them from the cold. One of the developers referred to it as a “travelling survival game”.
Neon Chrome Nintendo Switch
Neon Chrome is a ruthless top-down cyberpunk shooter with rogue-like elements. The game takes place inside an arcology – a massive sci-fi mega structure. Blast your way through walls with guns and cybernetic abilities and try alternate approaches with different roles like the Assassin, Corporate Soldier or the Cyber Psycho. Upgrade your character stats, discover new cybernetic enhancements and build up strength to finally face the Overseer. Every death is a new beginning – the path to defeating the Overseer is never the same.
88 Heroes: 98 Heroes Edition Nintendo Switch
It’s 8:08am on 8th August 1988, and the evil Dr. H8 has brought the world to the brink of total annihilation! His demands are simple: pay $88 octillion within 88 minutes, or Dr. H8’s 88 thermo-nuclear warheads will wipe out the Earth! But who will save us in our time of need? The bravest? The boldest? No… the 88 Heroes (plus ten of their friends)!
Prepare to infiltrate Dr. H8’s lair with the help of the strangest, dumbest and most pointless superheroes ever! With 88 levels between you and Dr. H8, only 88 seconds to complete each level and the 88-minute Doomsday clock already ticking, lead 98 unique characters – each with their own special abilities – on a platform-hopping, enemy-smashing, danger-dodging mission to save Earth from complete destruction!
Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle Nintendo Switch
Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle is a bullet-hell battle game that takes place in the Touhou universe. Take control of one of nine Touhou characters and eliminate your opponent using bullet-hell patterns, melee attacks, or spell cards!
Tiny Barbarian DX Nintendo Switch
Tiny Barbarian DX is an action game inspired by sword and sorcery fiction such as Conan the Barbarian or Fafhrd & the Grey Mouser. Besides being a thrill-a-minute Sword-’em-Up (or “swup”), the game is broken down into unrelated episodes, just like the old fantasy stories in pulp magazines.
Some of these games were released on other consoles like the VITA or Playstation 4 so if they sound familiar – that’s why!
There is also a new demo on the Nintendo Switch for a game called Oceanhorn.
