As we've mentioned previously, eShop release dates are getting a little bit more dynamic than they used to be. This is a good thing, as it reflects the positive third-party support coming the Switch's way, and with crowded weekly schedules and occasional multi-platform launches publishers are more than happy to break the 'release on a Thursday' eShop download model.
As a result today (24th October) brings us four new games, though it's three in Europe. For those of you that have lost track, below is a reminder of what's coming - they should go live at some point today (likely morning in the US, early afternoon in Europe).
The Mummy Demastered (WayForward) - £17.99 / $19.99USD
Sure to be tempting with Halloween around the corner. Forget the questionable movie, this promises "a 16-bit-inspired battle against the undead in a 2D, nonlinear, action-packed adventure". WayForward has earned plenty of credibility over the years and this looks enticing; our review will be with you later today.
This Is The Police (THQ Nordic) - £24.99 / $29.99USD
A strategy and adventure game set in the crime-ridden city of Freeburg. You assume the role of Police Chief Jack Boyd - voiced by Jon St. John (Duke Nukem) - and have to tackle a wide range of crimes, assigning officers to certain jobs and facing numerous moral dilemmas along the way. The ultimate aim is to raise $500,000 in 180 days, but you can choose to do that in any way you wish.
Knight Terrors (Nicalis) - £2.69 / $2.99USD
This budget title offers simple controls but arcade-style challenge; you have to dodge dangers and also destroy any creatures that come your way. It could be a bit of fun for Halloween, but we'll brave the horror and let you know what we think in a review.
Just Dance 2018 (Ubisoft) - $59.99USD (NA-only)
The popular series (we assume) continues with this latest entry, including over 40 tracks at launch on the cartridge and over 300 more through 'Just Dance Unlimited'. It even has a 'Mario dance', above, which is both humorous and slightly worrying.
[Update: we should mention that prior to these titles Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon also arrived in North America this week for $59.99USD] Also of note, Violett will be another early arrival this week in Europe, due on 25th October.
So, are you tempted by any of these titles?
