Mineko's Night Market, Cocoon, and Pizza Possum are just some of the games arriving on the Nintendo eShop this week.

🛍 Monday, September 25 — Sunday, September 30

Last week saw the rather ropey Switch version of Mortal Kombat 1 arrive, along with 40 other games, but this week is even busier, with close to 50 titles arriving on the Nintendo eShop.

As ever, I've gone through all of the upcoming games, with the full list below sharing what you need to know about each, along with a link out to more information.

This week I like the look of Mineko's Night Market, Betomis, Sentry City, Freak Crossing, Pizza Possum, and Cocoon to name but a few.

Let's get to the full list:

🗓 Upcoming Nintendo Switch Games:

Monday, September 25

  • RoboDunk â€” This is a kinda neat looking roguelite NBA Jam-like basketball game, featuring robots.

Tuesday, September 26

  • Autumn Hike â€” Yes, it's autumn now here, so here's the walking sim to match.
  • Mineko's Night Market â€” This narrative-driven, social simulation adventure celebrates Japanese culture. It's likely been on a few watchlists for a while.
  • Paleo Pines â€” A cozy 3D farming sim, with dinosaurs. I assume this one doesn't go all Jurassic Park.

Wednesday, September 27

Thursday, September 28

Friday, September 29

  • Ancient Mahjong â€” Fairly straightforward this one.
  • Cocoon â€” Adventure game from the lead designer of Limbo and Inside. If Annapurna are publishing, it must be worth a look.
  • Deflector â€” A futuristic hack and slash game about a virus.
  • Digitris â€” A falling block puzzler with a math component.
  • 📦 EA Sports FC 24 â€” For the past few years I've given a strong reccomendation to avoid FIFA on Switch, but this year, with this non-FIFA branded reboot, it seems EA may be making an effort with the Switch version. I'd still wait for reviews though. (Physical release.)
  • 📦 Fate/Samurai Remnant â€” Edo-period action RPG from Koei Tecmo. (Physical release.)
  • Humans vs Tigers â€” A basic obstacle course game.
  • Indoor Kickball â€” A 3D 1v1 game of kickball, but its played in the living room, kitchen, bedroom, etc.
  • Love Kuesuto â€” An interactive 'love and relationship quiz' with four board games. M for mature.
  • Ninja Kidz: Time Masters â€” A 3D action beat 'em up.
  • Supfly Delivery Simulator â€” 2D drone delivery with a two-player mode.

Saturday, September 30
