A new round of releases has hit the Nintendo Switch eShop! This week’s highlights includes the action-platformer Dead Cells, including DLC. There’s also the adventure game ASTRONEER, in which you explore and reshape distant worlds.
If you’ve ever wanted to try Captain Toad’s Switch outing, now is the perfect time, with his Treasure Tracker adventure available to play online right now. Why is that so special, you ask? Did we mention it’s FOR FREE? That’s right, if you have a Nintendo Switch Online account, you can play the full Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker game for free up until 20 January. It looks like this deal is only available in the US for now.
Wondering what to play this weekend? Check out the latest releases below and let us know which games will added to your collection this week.
- Dead Cells: The Queen and the Sea DLC – Battle your way through sunken shipwrecks, scale a burning lighthouse and confront your deadliest foe yet in Dead Cells: The Queen and the Sea DLC. This late-game content gives you an alternative to the High Peak Castle, Derelict Distillery and Throne Room biomes. This DLC also includes extras like nine new weapons, a not-so-cute pet, loads of outfits and new enemies to bash.
- ASTRONEER – ASTRONEER is set during the 25th century Intergalactic Age of Discovery, where Astroneers explore the frontiers of outer space, risking their lives in harsh environments to unearth rare discoveries and unlock the mysteries of the universe. On this adventure, players can work together to build custom bases above or below ground, create vehicles to explore a vast solar system and use terrain to create anything they can imagine. A player’s creativity and ingenuity are the key to seeking out and thriving while on exciting planetary adventures!

In Mario Tennis Aces you’ll learn how to unleash an arsenal of shots in all-out tennis bouts with friends, family and fan-favorite Mushroom Kingdom characters. Develop on-the-court strategies by completing missions and boss battles in Adventure mode, work up a sweat with intuitive motion controls in Swing Mode and then test your hard-earned skills in intense rallies with up to four players. Mario Tennis Aces is available for purchase now in Nintendo eShop.
