IT’S A NEW RELEASE WEEK ON THE eSHOP GLITCHES!
February is a short month, but the eShop doesn’t seem to care when it comes to new games for the Switch. The biggest issue anymore is money and memory. This week looks to be another busy one with pretty much the whole Metro series coming out, Bucket Knight, Bloodroots, and a bunch more! So, lets act like Phillip Defranco and just “jump right into this!” Here’s this week’s Switch Roundup!

Different allergens have different effects on Thomas – radically changing how he interacts with the world. Regular pollen allows him to build up a big sneeze to propel himself through the air. Smog, on the other hand, makes him swell up like a balloon. Peanuts… Well, peanuts are a WHOLE other story.
