It’s a big week for Switch owners with a bevy of games hitting, including The Red Lantern, Oddworld, Transformers, Cobra Kai, and more.
There are usually a few bigger game releases in the Nintendo Download, but this week looks like it might be kicking off the holiday rush of launches. There aren’t any real triple-A games included, but there are more than a couple of potential gems in here.
Chief among those is The Red Lantern, which sees players adventuring across the arctic via dog-sled. That’s far from all though, as Transformers fans have some strategic fun with Battlegrounds, and Torchlight III, Cobra Kai, Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, They Bleed Pixels, and lots more are coming up this week.
Take a look at the full week below.
Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch
- The Red Lantern – Survive the Alaskan tundra in this story-driven, rogue-lite survival adventure game as you find your way home with your team of five sled dogs. Manage your resources carefully, brave the cold and stave off the dangers of an ever-changing frozen wilderness.
- Supraland – Experience a fresh take on puzzles and exploration in the ultimate “sandbox” adventure. Embark on a valiant quest to save your toy village in this first-person, open-world puzzle-platformer. Battle your way toward an audience with the Blue King.
- GONNER2 – Death needs your help! Journey your way through deep, dark and chaotic places with sparks of unimaginable color and crazy bosses, all while trying to literally keep your head. This procedurally generated co-op platformer will keep you on your toes with its intense, platformer-shooter action.
- Carto – Separated from her Granny during a storm, young Carto must use her innate cartography powers to map and manipulate the world around her on her quest to be reunited. Featuring lush, hand-drawn visuals across a variety of biomes, Carto is a charming adventure game wrapped around a unique, world-altering puzzle mechanic. Carto will be available on Oct. 27.
- Kirby Fighters 2 Demo – Kirby fights to be the last one standing when he takes on the treacherous battle tower in Kirby Fighters 2, and now you can try the game out with a free demo in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch. In Kirby Fighters 2, Kirby brings a gauntlet of attacks to each battle, with a selection of 17 of the most iconic copy abilities from throughout the Kirby series, like Sword and Cutter. Kirby Fighters 2 also marks the debut of Kirby’s new Wrestler ability. The demo allows players to try out four play styles and adventure through one chapter of the game. It offers both online and local modes, with the ability to play with others who have purchased the full game. Don’t let Kirby’s cuteness distract you: He packs a lean and mean pink punch that’ll leave you huffing and puffing!
