This week’s Switch eShop update has a little something for everyone

While last week's eShop update was pretty massive in terms of new addition, this week things are settling down a bit. There are still some exciting games coming to the eShop, but perhaps none that are quite as big as last week's Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition. Still, you'll probably be able to find something you're interested in, especially if you're a fan of fighting or shoot 'em up games.

Dear Nintendo: Look at this DIY 3DS-like phone

Dear Nintendo: Look at this DIY 3DS-like phone

This Spring a developer by the name of Lexie Dostal hand-constructed an Android 3DS gaming phone. This device doesn't run 3DS games from Nintendo, but it does look a whole lot like a 3DS handheld gaming system. It actually uses some salvaged 3DS parts, as it were - but it runs an open hardware Android SBC called KitePhone.

It's that time of week again, with Nintendo announcing the lineup of games scheduled to hit the eShop over the next week. While many of 2018's eShop updates have been headlined by popular indie games, that isn't the case this week.

Zeraora, Pokemon’s newest mythical monster, arrives later this year

The Pokemon roster is getting another mythical creature later this year. Today, The Pokemon Company released a trailer for the franchise's 21st movie (yes, there have been that many), which gives us the briefest of glimpse at this new Pocket Monster. This electric Pokemon goes by the name of Zeraora, and as you'd imagine, details on it are fairly slim at the moment.

Toki Tori leads the way in this week’s Switch eShop update

While we wait on some of those exciting indie games for Switch that Nintendo revealed earlier this month, we still have the weekly eShop update to look forward to. Just as it does every Thursday, today Nintendo detailed the various games that will be landing on the eShop over the course of the next week.

Detective Pikachu, Outlast 2 hit Nintendo eShop this week

Today is a big day for the Nintendo eShop, but not for the reasons you might initially expect. While we're used to seeing the Switch get a lot of love in each week's eShop update, this week it's arguably the 3DS that's getting the bigger releases. That's all thanks to a famous electric rodent who's not only starring in his own game, but also gaining a voice.

Nintendo Direct: Super Smash Bros on Switch, WarioWare, Splatoon 2 DLC

Nintendo just finished its second Direct presentation of the year and suffice it to say, fans have a lot to look forward to across all the company’s gaming devices. Except for the Wii U. The Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo 3DS are the stars of the show, with both new games and ports of popular ones. The new titles still coming exclusively to the 3DS reaffirms Nintendo’s commitment to what some presumed would be left by the wayside in the Switch’s wake.

Nintendo Switch eShop has an indie-heavy week ahead of it

Tonight's Nintendo Direct will probably preview a number of big name titles from Nintendo and its third-party partners, but right now it's time to focus on some new indie games. Another Thursday has arrived, which means it's time for Nintendo to detail the games that will be heading to the Switch eShop over the course of the next week.

New Nintendo Direct for Switch and 3DS premieres tomorrow

New Nintendo Direct for Switch and 3DS premieres tomorrow

Lately, many Nintendo Switch fans have been driving themselves crazy with speculation about the next Nintendo Direct. Earlier in the year, Nintendo launched a Direct Mini that focused on some of the games coming to the Switch the year, but for fans, it didn't provide enough information. Nintendo usually pairs those Direct Minis with a second, full-length Nintendo Direct, leading many (especially those over on the Nintendo Switch subreddit) to assume that we'd get one in February.

Nintendo 3DS sales take surprising turn amid Switch success

Nintendo 3DS sales take surprising turn amid Switch success

With Nintendo looking to turn the Switch into the next Wii, it's tempting to assume that the 3DS is entering end-of-life. After all, we've had indications that the Pokemon and Fire Emblem series - two of the biggest 3DS franchises - are soon to jump ship to the Switch. Despite that, it would appear that the 3DS still has some fight left in it, as the latest numbers from the NPD Group paint a pretty encouraging picture for January sales.

As we once again find ourselves on a Thursday, it's time to talk about the new games that are headed to the Nintendo eShop over the course of the next week. The Nintendo Switch in particular has a big week ahead of it - arguably its biggest of the year so far - with the port of a much-loved PlayStation 4 game and the launch of an indie gem coming up in the next few days. As usual, though, there's plenty more to check out if you aren't really interested in the eShop's new headliners.
