This week’s new releases includes one of the biggest games of 2018, with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate hitting the Switch. Joining the all-star fighter is season 7 of Fortnite, along with three new NES games to join the online library.
There are a couple of other gems hidden among the new releases, like Color Zen, which was great on the Wii U and 3DS, and the nostalgia of SEGA’s Genesis classics.
Check out the full list below and let us know which games you’ll be playing this weekend.
