Nintendo Switch eShop is getting an excellent survival game today

Survival games are a dime a dozen these days, but like any genre that grows to be super popular, there will always be a few titles that manage to stand above the rest. Don't Starve is one of those games for the survival genre, with its Tim Burton-esque aesthetic and its punishing gameplay that makes you manage hunger, health, and sanity. If you're a Nintendo Switch owner and you like the sound of that, then good news: It's coming to your platform of choice today.

As it does every Thursday, today Nintendo announced the slew of new games that will hit the eShop over the next week. The biggest title arriving for the Switch is undoubtedly Don't Starve: Nintendo Switch Edition. Don't Starve on Nintendo Switch comes with both expansions that have been released for the PC thus far, Reign of Giants and Shipwrecked.

Both add a new degree of difficulty to the game, so once you've conquered the standard Don't Starve campaign, you can take on the challenges presented by its expansions. In a pleasant little twist, picking up the Nintendo Switch version of Don't Starve actually costs $5 less than buying the game and its expansions separately on PC, clocking in at a grand total of $19.99. Have a look below for a full list of all the games heading to the eShop over the next week.

In an interesting turn of events, the Nintendo 3DS isn't getting anything new this week while the Wii U is. While both platforms have taken a backseat to the Switch in the time since it launched, the 3DS still has a fair amount of support behind it while the Wii U has next to none, making a release schedule like this a rare sight.

Recent weeks have been fairly quiet when it comes to new releases on the Switch eShop, but that's all going to change in the coming months. Many of the titles Nintendo revealed in its latest Nindies Showcase are releasing either during summer or before, so we should get an influx of exciting games soon. In the meantime, however, this quiet period is the perfect opportunity to dig into Don't Starve and see how long you can survive.
