Nintendo Switch Eshop Adds Octopath Traveler, Captain Toad, And More Games This Week

Recommended Posts

A bunch of new games are now available on Nintendo Switch. It's an especially busy week for Nintendo's hybrid console; 26 games in all have released for the system this week, including two of this summer's biggest titles: Square Enix's retro-inspired RPG Octopath Traveler and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.

As its name implies, Octopath Traveler features eight playable characters, each of whom has their own unique storyline to follow. Along with a beautiful "HD 2D" visual style that harkens back to classic 16-bit RPGs, the game's most distinctive feature is its battle system, which allows players to forgo turns to stack up attacks. You can learn more about the title in GameSpot's Octopath Traveler review.

Captain Toad, meanwhile, is a port of the beloved Wii U puzzler. The game tasks players with guiding Captain Toad and Toadette around diorama-like levels to find hidden objects and collect stars. The Switch version also features a handful of new levels inspired by Mario's most recent 3D adventure, Super Mario Odyssey. You can find out how well the game holds up on Switch in our Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker review.

Beyond those two titles, this week also saw the release of Shining Resonance Refrain, a turn-based RPG that was previously only available in Japan on PS3. Other notable releases this week include the beautiful point-and-click adventure game The Lion's Song; the explosive puzzle-platformer Bomb Chicken; the cult classic adventure game Another World; and the Neo Geo first-person action game The Super Spy. You can see the full list of this week's releases below.
