On this frosty winter’s day, why not check out Super Meat Boy Forever, Collection of SaGa, Among Us, or one of the other titles added to the eShop?
No, it’s not just you, there is a lot of new stuff hitting the Switch this week. Between the new NES/SNES games landing on the Nintendo Online Service’s virtual console and all the indie stuff that’s on the way, there’s a ton to play.
Most of that comes out of the Indie World presentation this past week, which was pretty packed. That included games like Calico, Among Us, Super Meat Boy Forever, and more. There’s still other fresh launches as well, like Unto the End (check out our review of the PC version here), Override 2, and Turrican Flashback.
As for the classic games I mentioned, those count Dixie Kong’s Double Trouble and Ignition Factor among them. Solid choices for subscribers there.
Checkout the full list of what’s new below.
