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.

The headliner for this week is unquestionably the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection. This bundles 12 different Street Fighter games together into one $40 package, so there’s definitely enough for fans of the series to go crazy. We don’t have a specific list of which games are included in the collection, but Nintendo and Capcom say the compilation covers the Street Fighter 1, Street Fighter II, Street Fighter III, and Street Fighter Alpha series.

Also new this week is famed bullet hell game Ikaruga. We’ve seen Ikaruga launch on a bunch of different consoles since it first arrived in arcades back in 2001, making Nintendo Switch just the latest platform on an increasingly long list. Have a look at the full list of this week’s eShop releases below.
