(The SWITCH Roundup is an ongoing daily article showcasing recently released noteworthy titles on the eShop. New games are updated as soon as possible, so check back often.)
IT’S ANOTHER NEW RELEASE WEEK ON THE eSHOP GLITCHES!!
As the Switch gets more and more popular, the eShop is becoming flooded with games! That’s a good and a bad thing seeing how a lot of games I’m seeing pop up on the digital storefront are just cheap asset flips, clones, and cash-grabs. So, from now on, I’ll be treating the Switch Roundup the same way I do the iOS Roundup. By only showcasing the “noteworthy” releases. It’ll be the same Roundup that you know and love. It’s just a little more work on my end. That’s all. Anyway, let’s get this shindig started! Here’s this week’s all new Switch Roundup!
