The Nintendo Switch eShop has been updated with a huge number of titles. This week’s highlights includes the telekinetic adventures of Life is Strange 2, as well as the mythic quest of The Pathless.
In Life is Strange 2, it’s your job to help your little brother flee from those who might do him harm. Oh, and he just happens to have telekinetic powers. Meanwhile, The Pathless involves an archer, eagle, and an open-world adventure full of puzzles and secrets. Sounds intriguing!
Meanwhile, Nintendo has put together a few neat packages. If you’re one of the few people who don’t own either Animal Crossing: New Horizons or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, these bundles serve up the respective game and their related DLC. It’s the pefect way for newcomers to get aquainted with these must-have games.
Oh, and let’s not forget the usual collection of weekly discounts to tempt your digital wallet. There are some huge savings listed this week, with everything from LEGO games to Monster Hunter titles on sale. Let’s just say, if you don’t already own the fabulous LEGO City Undercover, now is the perfect time to pick it up for a bargain price.
There’s also a long list of other new titles to consider, so let’s get to it. Check out all the new releases below. Which games will you be playing this week?
- Life is Strange 2 – A traumatic incident unleashed your younger brother Daniel’s telekinetic power, forcing you to run from home, the police hot on your trail! As 16-year-old Sean, you’re now solely responsible for Daniel’s safety, shelter and upbringing. But when someone so young has so much power, life lessons about right and wrong will create dramatic and life-changing consequences. If you can reach Mexico, you will be safe, but the journey will be winding, filled with joy, awe and danger. This trip of a lifetime will bond Sean and Daniel forever … or tear their brotherhood apart. Life is Strange 2 is available today.
