It’s the end of the week, and that can only mean one thing; it’s time to reveal the latest gaming delights to hit the Nintendo Switch eShop. This week’s highlights consist of Pocket Card Jockey and Shiren the Wanderer, two very different titles.

In Pocket Card Jockey: Ride On! you’re faced with a cute clash of genres with solitaire and horse racing. Playing your cards right is your key to victory as these chibi-like horses race for the gold. This was originally a 3DS title, now revamped for the Switch.

Shiren the Wanderer, on the other hand, is a roguelike in which death comes swiftly asnd regularly. Don’t that put you off, though; we absolutely loved it in our Shiren the Wanderer review. It involves Shiren and his talking ferret friend, Koppa, receiving a vision of a land in distress, a kidnapped girl, and a promise of riches. It’s certainly one to check out or put on your watch list!
