It's the first week of new releases in 2018, so Nintendo Life has gathered today all the latest incoming games, demos and slices of DLC coming to Nintendo Switch, 3DS and Wii U in North America. This week, we've got another dip into the ACA Neo Geo vault; a selection of indies with racing, picture puzzles and dodgeball in mind; and who could forget Kirby and the new demo for Kirby Battle Royale on 3DS.

Switch eShop

ACA Neo Geo King Of The Monsters (HAMSTER, $7.99) - With up to six giant monsters to choose from, battle other kaiju and cause wanton destruction across Japan in this Neo Geo classic.

Grand Prix Rock 'N Racing (EnjoyUp Games, $7.99) - Race with up to three other friends, realistic physics, an isometric POV and lots of rock and/or roll.

Pic-a-Pix Deluxe (Lightwood Games, $7.99) - This Switch version of this popular puzzle game includes 300 new conundrums, 2-4 player co-op and more.

Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure DELUXE (Game Swing, $7.99) - This co-op adventure combines dodgeball,a '70s-style setting and a slew of crazy and colourful bosses.

3DS eShop

Kirby Battle Royale – Demo Version (HAL Laboratory, Free) - Compete against three friends (or AI, if you're perpetually lonely) and battle to see who is the greatest Kirby! The demo should give you a good taste for the mini-game silliness offered by this latest 3DS title.

Bit quiet on the North American front this week, but expect the new releases, demos and DLC to flow come next Thursday. What are you guys playing this week? Let us know below!
