WrestleQuest for Nintendo Switch

WrestleQuest, Stray Gods, and Unidentified Falling Objects are just of the highlights coming to Nintendo Switch this week.

🛍 Monday, August 7 — Sunday, August 13

Summer season continues, and this week is another fairly busy one on the Nintendo Switch, with just under 30 games arriving on the hybrid over the next week.

Last week saw the likes of Indian-cooking game Venba, time-travel adventure A Guidebook of Babel, and 16-bit style platformer Tiny Thor, land on the Nintendo Switch — but now it's time to check out what games are hitting the eShop this week.

As ever, you'll find a full list of all the upcoming Nintendo Switch games below, along with a short description of each and a link to more information — such as cost, trailers, etc.

This week I like the look of WrestleQuest, Stray Gods, and puzzler Unidentified Falling Objects. Let's get to the full list!
