The Nintendo Switch eShop has been updated with loads of new content to try over the weekend. This week’s highlight is Kirby’s Return to Dream Land, which takes us back to Dream Land with a single or multiplayer experience that includes new copy abilities. There’s even a demo available if you’re on the fence (and we highly recommend checking that out).

Meanwhile, Octopath Traveler II is here with an all-new adventure set in HD-2D graphics, merging retro and modern styles. There are eight new travelers, each with their own tale just waiting to be told.

There’s plenty more where that came from, so let’s get to it! Check out the full list of new releases and special events below. Which games will you be playing this weekend?
