Switch eShop update sees Pocket Rumble lead the way

It’s time for yet another weekly update to the Nintendo eShop. While the past couple of weeks have been packed with some pretty big releases like Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Mario Tennis Aces, this week is a little more quiet. That is, of course, unless you’ve been waiting for a particular game by the name of Pocket Rumble.

Pocket Rumble is actually a game we’ve known about for quite some time. Not only has it been available in early access on Steam for a couple of years at this point, but the Switch version was revealed early last year in the very first Nindies Showcase for the console. That Nindies Showcase was first broadcast before the Switch even launched, so fans have been looking forward to this game for some time.

As of today, that wait is finally over. Pocket Rumble promises to be a throwback fighting game that offers deep mechanics despite its simple, two-button controls. It’s joined by a number of indie titles and games from smaller studios – have a look at the full list of this week’s releases below.
