What’s happening on the Nintendo Switch eShop this week? There’s actually quite a lot happening, with Sonic Frontiers, It Takes Two, and Harvestella among this week’s eShop highlights.
Sonic the Hedgehog is back in his latest 3D outing, Sonic Frontiers. Promising open-world platforming, this speedy adventure takes Sonic to a series of new islands in search of the Chaos emeralds.
It Takes Two is a co-op adventure – in fact, it was created purely with co-op in mind. You’ll need to work together to navigate these interesting challenges made especially for two players.
Harvestella is a life-simulation RPG involving farming and saving the world. Something called the season of death is threatening to wipe out everything – yikes! There’s a demo available for this one if you want to give it a try first.
There’s a couple of activities for My Nintendo members, plus the usual discounts to tempt you, and a lot more new games on offer.
Check out the full list of new releases below. Which eShop games will you be playing this weekend?
