The weekend is fast approaching, and that means it’s time to reveal the latest games to hit the Switch eShop. This week’s eShop highlights includes the sim-adventure hybrid of Disney Dreamlight Valley, where the magic of the land has been lost. There’s also the cuteness of Ooblets to discover, with crafting and customization aplenty. LEGO fans will want to check out a new game in the form of LEGO Brawls, a team action brawler featuring loads of customizable minifigures.
Don’t forget you can preorder Splatoon 3 ahead of next week’s launch and receive double gold points on the eShop. There’s also a special Pokémon Unite event happening from Friday to celebrate the first anniversary of the game. This is a free-to-play game, so if you haven’t already tried it, check it out on the eShop.

Now it’s up to you to discover the stories of this world and bring the magic back to Dreamlight Valley! Show your love for Disney with exclusive outfits that celebrate the classic Disney Parks themes, along with beloved characters such as Mickey Mouse. Disney Dreamlight Valley is a hybrid between a life-sim and an adventure game rich with quests, exploration and engaging activities featuring Disney and Pixar friends, both old and new. Disney Dreamlight Valley launches for Nintendo Switch on Sept. 6 in Early Access.
