It’s Thursday, and that means it’s time for another weekly update to the Nintendo eShop. This is a pretty big week, all told, thanks to a number of announcements at E3 2018. In fact, in a departure from the way things usually work over at Nintendo HQ, the company is highlighting many games today that are already available on the eShop.
For example, Fortnite is one of the games that gets some attention from Nintendo in today’s announcement, but that went up on the eShop back on Tuesday. The same is true for Hollow Knight and Fallout Shelter, which both were surprise launches earlier in the week. So, if you missed those announcements and launches, at least you know about them now.
Aside from those titles, there isn’t a whole lot happening on the eShop this week. Still, in a week where Fortnite, Fallout Shelter, Paladins, and Hollow Knight all go live within days of one another, the fact that’s it a quiet week otherwise isn’t shocking. Have a look at the full list of games landing on the eShop this week:
ACA NEOGEO SUPER SIDEKICKS 3: THE NEXT GLORY Alchemic Jousts Beekyr Reloaded Bloons TD 5 Chameleon Run Deluxe Edition Fallout Shelter Fortnite Grab the Bottle (available June 20) Hollow Knight INK (available June 19) Jolt Family Robot Racer Lanota LEGO The Incredibles (available June 15) Moorhuhn Remake Otto Paladins – Founder’s Pack Parallel Pub Encounter R.B.I. Baseball 18 Soccer Slammers
The Lost Child (available June 19)
This is the first week in quite some time that neither the 3DS nor Wii U have received new eShop releases. With the Wii U, that isn’t really a surprise, but even as Nintendo seems to be slowly moving its attention away from 3DS, developers have still been supporting the system with new titles. In any case, next week is another big week for the Switch, as Mario Tennis Aces is launching, so get ready to hit the courts and break some racquets.
