What’s happening on the Nintendo Switch eShop? Oh, nothing much, just the highly acclaimed Red Dead Redemption making its way to the Big N. This 2010 title is back, bringing its western action to a new audience. It includes the Undead Nightmare DLC as well as other bonus content, and is available from August 17.

Meanwhile, if you’re looking for multiplayer mayhem, Moving Out 2 is sure to hit the spot. This sequel to the zany 2020 title comes from Swedish studio DevM Games and Aussie developer SMG Studio. It was a surprise hit at the time, and we can’t wait to see what the sequel brings.

As always, there are plenty of sales to tempt you this week as well. THQ Nordic and Ubisoft feature prominently, but even the original Moving Out is heavily discounted, so we recommend grabbing it while you can.

Check out the full list of new releases below. Which titles will you be playing next? And check out our latest podcast for our thoughts on the latest games!
