Super Smash Bros DLC might headline this week, but there are way bigger releases in the Download. Mortal Kombat 11, Cuphead and more are here.
Get over here!
Is Super Smash Bros Ultimate downloadable content a big deal? Sure it is. The addition of Persona’s Joker to the roster is a big deal, as is the new stage-builder and more. But is it bigger than Mortal Kombat 11? I’m going to say ‘no’.
MK11 nonetheless does arrive this week for the Switch, along with a few other big name titles. Cuphead makes it’s appearance, along with Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen and a host of smaller launches.
Check out the new arrivals below.

- Cuphead – Cuphead is a classic run-and-gun action game heavily focused on boss battles.
