Nintendo Switch eShop has a huge week ahead of it

Nintendo has detailed the next round of releases for the Switch eShop, and the week ahead might just be the biggest week of the year for the eShop thus far. Most of the attention today is on the version 3.0 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate update and the release of the game's first DLC fighter, Joker, but even if you aren't a Smash Bros. fan, there's still plenty to look forward to.Ultimate's version 3.0 update and Joker both released last night, and the number of people looking to download that new content brought the eShop to its knees for a fair amount of time. By now, the problems have mostly been ironed out, but Nintendo says that some may still experience intermittent problems. Assuming you can get a stable connection to the eShop, be sure to download Ultimate 3.0 when you've got the chance and check out all of the new content that's coming along with it.

This new content for Smash Bros. Ultimate is being joined by some huge games. As of today, Cuphead is now available on the eShop, with Mortal Kombat 11 and Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen both launching next week. Have a look at the full list below for all of the week's releases:
