Nintendo Download: Strange Things Are Afoot

Life is Strange, no? Specifically, I mean that the video game Life is Strange 2 has made its way to the eShop. Though that’s not all that’s weird this week.

Stranger still

I could’ve sworn that Life is Strange 2 was already available on the Switch, but I guess not. It’s actually the headline title this week, as the telekinetic bother story finally does appear (for sure) on Nintendo’s console.

As mentioned though, there are some other odd things afoot. Mystical action game The Pathless also arrives, and if you remember Abzu, you’re going to want to check it out. This is from the same team, casting players as an archer who’s capable of some tricky shots.

Then there’s Risen. Yes the same Risen that first appeared way back in 2009 is back, and on Switch this week. While it’s definitely an older title, it’s looking shockingly good on Nintendo’s console, and might work out for you if you’re on the hunt for a deep, fantasy adventure.

Here’s the full list of what’s coming:

Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch

  • Life is Strange 2 – A traumatic incident unleashed your younger brother Daniel’s telekinetic power, forcing you to run from home, the police hot on your trail! As 16-year-old Sean, you’re now solely responsible for Daniel’s safety, shelter and upbringing. But when someone so young has so much power, life lessons about right and wrong will create dramatic and life-changing consequences. If you can reach Mexico, you will be safe, but the journey will be winding, filled with joy, awe and danger. This trip of a lifetime will bond Sean and Daniel forever … or tear their brotherhood apart. Life is Strange 2 is available today.
  • The Pathless – From the creators of ABZÛThe Pathless is the mythic adventure of an archer and an eagle in a vast forest. Become the Hunter, a master of archery who travels to a mystical island to dispel a curse of darkness that grips the world. Establish a connection with your eagle companion and soar through the air. Forge your own path in a beautiful open world as you traverse misty forests, lush meadows and snowy tundra.
