IT’S A NEW RELEASE WEEK ON THE eSHOP GLITCHES!! (It’s also a new month!)
We had a pretty good week on the Switch last week. Every week seems to be a good week on the eShop anymore! Games like Jedi Knight II and Dead by Daylight stick out. This week looks to be heading in the same direction with Super Crate Box, Neo Cab, and Ghostbusters the Game: Remastered. Double Kick Heroes and Bloodroots are supposed to release by the end of summer, but there is no official date yet.
So, let’s get this party started! Here’s this week’s SWITCH Roundup!

This platforming title features many tributes to oldschool video games and inspired by such titles as Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Mario Bros series and Mutant Mudds. But the main feature is the protagonist — grumpy cook who would love to beat the sauce outta his enemies.
