Nintendo Switch weekly eShop update: Spooky times ahead

Nintendo has detailed a new batch of games heading to the eShop over the next week, and it seems we’ve got a fairly packed release schedule on our hands. This week, however, the big releases aren’t all reserved for the Switch. Though it’s been mostly silent on the 3DS front over the past few weeks, this week the little handheld is arguably getting the biggest release.

Luigi’s Mansion, a port of the classic GameCube game of the same name, is heading to Nintendo 3DS this week. Players will one again have a chance to put on Luigi’s vacuum and do a little ghost hunting, but this time around, there’s a two-player co-op mode and touchscreen functionality. If you liked the original when it was one of the GameCube’s launch titles some 17 years, its 3DS port could be worth checking out.

Over on the Switch, we’ve got another week full of releases. Chief among this week’s additions include The World Ends with You: Final Remix, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, LEGO DC Super-Villains, and The Jackbox Party Pack 5. Have a look at the full list of releases below:
