As a Canadian resident of Canada, it falls to me to share this week’s eShop update. Something about turkey comas seems to make people a little lazy.
Given that it’s a public holiday across much of North America (but a regular old Thursday to me), this week’s new Switch games are a little weak for heavyweights. Nonetheless, there are a few interesting looking games to be found. Personally, I’m pretty excited for Retro Goal, the latest from the developers of Retro Bowl. Given Retro Bowl is easily the best football game on the Switch, hopefully that bodes well for their take on football.
Check out the full list below, and also check out Nintendo’s updated Game Store listing here.
This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following content:
- Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch
- The Knight Witch – This handcrafted adventure emphasizes the importance of saying “thank you”. Cast devastating card-based spells, forge strong bonds, and make moral choices, all in your quest to save your home and discover who is behind the war golem invasion. Encounter evil enemies and decide how to proceed. As you travel through Dungeonidas, your exploits and efforts will be seen and discussed by the citizenry. Knight witches grow stronger through gratitude and trust, and they can earn it in many ways – though not all methods are sincere. Will you do whatever it takes to gain popularity, or will you try to be honest? The choice is in your hands. The Knight Witch is making its way to the Nintendo Switch system on November 29th.
