This week’s eShop highlight is none other than Super Mario Bros. Wonder. It feels like we’ve been waiting awhile for this one, though in reality it was only annouced a few months ago. It might be truer to say that we’ve simply missed Mario and his 2D shenanigans, and we’ve finally been rewarded with a fresh new title to enjoy after all these years.
Meanwhile, despite Wonder’s release, there’s a long list of other titles to tempt players this week. The first Metal Gear Solid collection is another highlight, bringing a solid lineup of titles from across the series to players.
Game night hosts are also in for a treat with the new Jackbox Party Pack 10 now available. It’s sure to be a winner during those group gatherings to help get everyone loosened up!
Check out the long list of titles hitting the Switch this week below. What will you be playing this week? Let us know in the comments section! Also check out our weekly podcast to keep up with all things Nintendo!
