The Nintendo eShop has been updated with the latest games ahead of the weekend. This week’s Nintendo Download includes some exciting content, including the return of the popular Yo-Kai Watch series, as the localization of Yo-Kai Watch 3 makes its way to the 3DS. On the Switch, there’s the friendly FPS Away and thriller Observer, as well as the fairy tale of the Liar and the Blind Prince.
Check out the full list below and let us know what you’ll be playing this weekend.
- YO-KAI WATCH 3 – Mischievous beings known as Yo-kai are everywhere, and it’s up to Nate and Hailey Anne to befriend, battle and solve problems with them. Follow two parallel stories and unravel the mysteries behind strange sightings while meeting more than 600 Yo-kai and using the new 3×3 grid battle system to strategically dish out or dodge attacks. The YO-KAI WATCH 3 game is available on Feb. 8.
- The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince – Plucked straight from the pages of an ancient fairy tale, The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince tells the story of two lonely hearts brought together through a mutual misunderstanding. Transform between the wolf and the princess to solve puzzles and evade traps, collect flowers and petals to unlock fragments of memories, and weave through the dark and dangerous forest to guide the prince toward a cure. But be warned … an all-seeing forest is no place for a blind prince. The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince game is available on Feb. 12.
- Away: Journey to the Unexpected – Welcome to a feel-good FPS – a colorful adventure combining action, negotiation and rogue-lite elements. Play as a kid that is neither a hero nor a warrior. Choose your path through the levels, uncover the lighthearted story and above all, recruit allies. All the wacky and powerful characters you meet can be played in first person, and it’s up to you to find the right answers to get them to join your team.
- Observer – The Observer game is a cyberpunk detective thriller set in Krakow, Poland, in the year 2084. The world lies in ruins, with corporations seizing power after the fall of governments. You do their bidding. No lie will remain hidden from you, as you hack into the minds of those you interrogate. When your past catches up with you, you must act on your own and unravel the mystery of your son’s disappearance.
