(The SWITCH Roundup is an ongoing daily article showcasing recently released titles on the eShop. New games are updated as soon as possible, so check back often.)
IT’S A BRAND NEW RELEASE WEEK ON THE eSHOP GLITCHES!!
Well, after quite a few messages and that HIGHLY official Twitter poll, it looks like the majority of readers prefer a daily SWITCH Roundup of new games, rather than the Weekly Attack lists I’ve been putting out on Mondays. It’s totally fine with me. It’s a bit more work, but I’d rather put out content that readers enjoy.
Anyway, last week was a pretty solid week for new games on the Switch. We had games like Rad, In-Vert, Plunge, and even a couple “Sega Ages” titles. The Switch has definitely become this generation’s go-to device for indie games. This week is looking like another good week with games like Whipseey, Bubsy, and Deadlings releasing.
So, let’s get this week started!!…….oh, wait. Rarely anything ever comes out on Mondays. Well, let’s get this week started possibly tomorrow!!
