Nintendo Switch weekly eShop update: Party hard

Nintendo has detailed another batch of games heading the eShop over the course of the next week, and there are some big titles coming to the Switch in particular. This week will see the release of Super Mario Party, which is the latest entry in a series that's been running for nearly 20 years. While probably not the best purchase for people who will be playing solo, Super Mario Party will likely become one of the go-to party games for Switch owners.

Best Buy has a tempting Nintendo Switch bundle deal for a short time

Best Buy has a tempting Nintendo Switch bundle deal for a short time

Since the Switch is still a relatively new console that's selling well, we haven't seen very many discounts on it. The ones we do see usually come in the form of some sort of bundle deal, which might stick you with accessories or games you don't really want. Best Buy has a new bundle deal of its own on offer currently, but this time around, you get to pick the game it comes with.

New Super Mario Bros U might get a Switch re-release

The Switch has proven to be a pretty good platform for Wii U games, and there are still plenty left to bring over. The next Wii U port Nintendo launches for the Switch could be New Super Mario Bros U, assuming a new rumor is to be believed. Word is that Nintendo could even release a Switch version of New Super Mario Bros U before the year is out, bolstering its holiday lineup beyond just Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

Luigi Mario is dead, but also OK

Luigi Mario is dead, but also OK

In Super Smash Bros Ultimate, Luigi Mario is dead. But there's good news you can share with all your distraught friends: Luigi Mario is only kind of dead. Not all the way dead. He's dead sorta like how comic book characters die sometimes and come back to life through some hereto unknown force. Only this time it has to do with ghosts.

Mario Tennis Aces update addresses the tyranny of Bowser Jr

Mario Tennis Aces update addresses the tyranny of Bowser Jr

Bowser Jr. is a character with very few redeeming qualities, both specifically in Mario Tennis Aces and across the broader Mario library. On the court, he's seen by the player base as an overpowered character who is a little too good at everything, and in other Mario games, he's a whiny brat who only seems to be concerned with causing trouble. The little punk is kind of cute though, which is about the only positive thing you can say about him.

I am so bad at Mario Tennis Aces (but I still kind of love it)

I am so bad at Mario Tennis Aces (but I still kind of love it)

For the moment, Mario Tennis Aces is the Nintendo Switch game to be playing (at least until Octopath Traveler releases later this week). Mario sports titles have always been an interesting little offshoot of the main Super Mario series - at first blush, you wonder why you'd waste your time playing a sports game featuring the cast of Mario, but once you actually sit down and really get familiar with them, their often deep systems become addicting. It should be little surprise, then, that Mario Tennis Aces has a lot of people hooked.

It's Thursday again (funny how this seems to happen so frequently), which means that it's time for another update to the Switch eShop. While some eShop updates throughout the first half of the year have been relatively quiet, this one most certainly is not. This, of course, is the week that Mario Tennis Aces arrives on the Switch, but it's being joined by some other exciting games as well.

Monopoly is getting a Mario Kart makeover

Mario Kart die-hards take note, because the next entry in Hasbro's Monopoly Gamer line is going to be themed around everyone's favorite kart racer.
