With E3 taking place today, I had almost totally forgotten that the eShop gets new games on Thursdays. It appears this fact may have also slipped Nintendo’s mind, as there’s almost nothing new today. However, they do a good job of outlining what’s on the way over the next several days.
This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:
- Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch
- ARMS – Fighting superstars from around the world share one thing in common: extendable arms! Fight as never before: equip each arm of each fighter with a super-powered weapon to create a slew of unprecedented combinations. Then use simple motion or button controls to dish out highly strategic beatdowns in 1-on-1 or even 2-on-2 battles! The ARMS game will be available on June 16. (Additional accessories required for multiplayer mode. Sold separately.)
- Cave Story+ – A young boy wakes up in a cave with no memory of who he is or how he got there. Join him in an action-packed adventure of thrills and discovery: Cave Story+, the definitive edition of the classic game, will be available on the Nintendo Switch console on June 20.
- MIGHTY GUNVOLT BURST – Rather than make a direct sequel to its bite-sized 2D action game Mighty Gunvolt from 2014, Inti Creates has made the next installment in the Mighty Gunvolt series. MIGHTY GUNVOLT BURST is a new full-sized game that features characters from multiple universes, with Gunvolt (Azure Striker Gunvolt) and Beck (Mighty No. 9) taking the stage once again.
- Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS
- Runbow Pocket – Runbow Pocket is a fast, frantic game in which you can conquer more than 145 levels. The world changes with each swipe of color, so you’ll have to stay on your toes as platforms and obstacles disappear. Runbow Pocket will be available on June 20.Nintendo eShop sales:
