As regulars will know we're now in the habit of sharing mini Download Updates on a Tuesday, with the pleasing support for the Switch prompting some studios to bring a mix of retail and download-only titles out a little earlier each week. Typically there are 4-5 new games on offer at this point each time around, which sure is a strain on the wallet.
This week is a pretty tasty one, all told. Rockstar is leading the way with a notable port, but that's not to say that the other releases out today should be overlooked; there's some good stuff on offer. It's worth noting that in all cases where an entry specifies a region it's already out or due soon in other territories.
So, without further ado, here are the latest Switch eShop releases.
L.A. Noire (Rockstar) - £44.99 / $49.99 USD
Also making its way to PS4 and Xbox One, the big selling points for the Switch iteration are the inclusion of touchscreen segments, along with goodies like HD Rumble and portability. This was a big deal in its last-gen guise, and it'll be interesting to see whether it strikes gold a second time around.
Rocket League (Psyonix Studios) - £15.04 / $19.99USD
One of the most eagerly awaited eShop titles of the year (there will eventually be a retail version, too), this brings the PC and console smash hit to Nintendo gamers. On Switch there are some unique Nintendo-themed vehicles, along with all the relevant modes, cross-platform multiplayer and more.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 (Warner Bros., NA only) - $59.99USD
Combine zany LEGO gameplay with a Marvel mash-up and you potentially have a bit of a family-friendly gem. In addition to the story there'll also be battle arenas for local multiplayer, if co-op isn't turning out so well... Out in Europe on 17th November.
Batman - The Telltale Series (Telltale Games, NA only) - $39.99USD
It's pleasing to have another Telltale release on the Switch, although it feels like this one's arrival has been rather low-key, with an official announcement coming long after retail listings. Nevertheless it's another step towards Nintendo's system catching up with Telltale's output and it'll be interesting to see whether it achieves decent sales. Out in Europe on 17th November.
RiME (Grey Box, NA only) - $29.99USD
This has taken a little while to make its way to Switch, and represents one of the most ambitious Indie retail releases of the year. It's a charming and at times emotional adventure, but unfortunately has some technical issues on Nintendo's system - check out our RiME review to learn more. Out in Europe on 17th November.
Ittle Dew 2+ (Nicalis) - £26.99 / $29.99USD
A sequel to a rather charming top-down adventure that we saw on the Wii U eShop, this looks to deliver more of a good thing with bright visuals and attractive design. In truth some may opt for the neat retail edition with the usual Nicalis extras.
Super Putty Squad (System 3, Europe) - £14.99
A retro platforming experience remastered for modern systems (previously also on Wii U and 3DS), this features a protagonist that "can inflate, morph, stretch, punch, jump and absorb". In principle that sounds like rather good fun. Previously released in North America.
Ben 10 (Bandai Namco, North America) - $29.99USD
A single player action brawler which could certainly be fun for fans of the TV series. Previously released in Europe.
That's the slate of fresh releases in the Switch eShop (and stores in some cases) that are out today. Let us know if you'll be buying any of these in the comments below.
