Five More Nintendo Switch Games Arrive On The Eshop

Nintendo’s next major Switch game launch, Splatoon 2, may still be a few weeks away, but there’s still plenty happening on the Eshop. Today brings with a larger-than-usual slate of new arrivals, with a total of five games launching in the US.

Surprisingly, only one of the five is an ACA Neo Geo game, which often represent half of the new Eshop release in any given week. And it’s a good one–Metal Slug 2 is among the series’ best entries. It carries the standard Neo Geo pricing of $8 / £6.29.

The other new releases include Vaccine ($10 / £9), a survival-horror game in the mold of the classic Resident Evil games; you choose from two different characters, each with their own special abilities. Bulb Boy ($9) is also a horror game, albeit a much different sort, as it’s a side-scrolling adventure game with a cute art style. Implosion ($12 / £10.79) is an action game where you fight enemies using a mech suit. And finally, Shephy ($5 / £5) is a card game about obtaining a certain number of sheep.

These are the first new games of the week on the Eshop, unless you’re in Europe, which saw the launch of a game that isn’t out yet in the US. Last week’s US releases included a Neo Geo Game (Magical Drop II) and the excellent Gonner. Splatoon 2 launches on July 21, but you can pick up a demo version beginning today that will be playable for a limited period of time on Saturday, July 15.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
