Nintendo Download: A Solitaire-y Ride

Jockeys, dungeons, plumbers, and one big time knock off are all included in what’s an otherwise thin week for new releases.

Not that plumber

Alright so, this is a bit of an oddball week for the Nintendo Switch. It’s not that there are no new games hitting, because there are a ton of them, but what’s new isn’t what likely anyone would call ‘anticipated’. We’re talking about some niche stuff, to the nth degree here… and possibly a halfway decent time in the form of a hilariously-named knock-off.

First though, there’s the spotlighted games. This week sees Pocket Card Jockey: Ride On! and Shiren the Wanderer, both of which are smaller launches. That’s not to say these are bad games, as we’re totally unfamiliar with both, but ‘big names’ they’re not.

And then there’s Call of Honor: Duty of Warfare. No, we’re not making that up, and yes it’s exactly what you think it is. Check out all of the above and everything else, below.

Adventurers and warriors have flocked from all over the realm, eager for a chance at fortune. What is the connection between the mystery girl and the monster?
