Get ready, because this week’s eShop roundup is a doozy. Firstly, we have the highly anticipated Cowabunga Collection to give us another healthy dose of TMNT action, bringing 13 – yes, 13! – classic titles in one neat little package.
The retro love continues with our enxt highlight, Pac-Man World Re-Pac. This 1999 game brought our round yellow hero into the realm of 3D, and now you can experience it again in this remastered version.
Finally, another blast from the past joins our round-up with volume three of NIS classics. This collection brings three classics to the Switch, including the 2002 RPG title La Pucelle: Ragnarok, which has not previously been seen in the west.
There’s plenty more to be excited about this week, including the Splatoon 3 World Premiere demo, which kicks off this weekend. Be sure to take part of the action!
