This week is a tad slower in terms of huge games hitting the Switch’s eshop, but the games hitting across the Nintendo body of platforms is not one to be taken lightly this week.

- Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch
- Yono and the Celestial Elephants – Many adventure games have a distinct lack of elephants … but that’s all about to change because Yono is here. The Yono and the Celestial Elephants game is a grand adventure, featuring carefully designed puzzles, treasure hunts, a sprinkling of combat and a world full of people. Play as a young elephant tasked to save a world he’s never seen before, and explore the rich history of a kingdom where humans, zombies and robots live side by side.
- Wulverblade – Help Britannia defeat the Romans in Wulverblade, a hardcore side-scrolling beat-’em-up game inspired by old arcade classics of the ’80s and ’90s. Go it alone or team up with a friend in local two-player co-op.* It’s time to show the Ninth Legion what you’re made of!
