There's around 30 games coming to the Nintendo Switch this week, including Red Dead Redemption, Marble It Up Ultra, and the celebrated Vampire Survivors.

๐Ÿ› Monday, August 14 โ€” Sunday, August 20

A whole new faction of garlic mains are about to be born this week as Poncle's much-loved roguelite Vampire Survivors finally makes its debut on Nintendo's hybrid.

The 2022 smash hit (did you know it won BAFTAs Best Game award) lands on the Switch alongside nearly 30 other games. As ever, we've gone through all of the upcoming eShop games to bring you the full list, and to give you a quick idea of what each release is about.

Beyond Vampire Survivors, this week also sees the pricey port of 2010's Red Dead Redemption, a new Marble It Up game, and Moving Out 2.

Last week saw the likes of Stray Gods and Unidentified Falling Objects land on the Switch. WrestleQuest was also due to launch last week, but was delayed due to a critical bug.

You'll find a list below of every game coming to the Nintendo Switch over the next seven days, alongside a brief description, and a link out to where you can find more information โ€” such as trailers, screenshots, etc.

  • Black Skylands โ€” A steampunk-themed open-world top-down shooter meets adventure game in the skies.
  • ๐ŸŽฎ Moving Out 2 โ€” A return of more physics-based party mayhem. Haul furniture around as a team.
