17 Games Were Released For the Switch Today | Gaming News
And one 3DS title dropped, too.
Nintendo has announced that a crazy amount of games are coming to the Nintendo eShop between now and September 19.
In all, 17 Switch games dropped today, five are coming on September 18, one is coming the next day, new DLC is coming for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 soon after, and a single game came to the 3DS.
Among the long list of games coming to the eShop, four stand out: Undertale, Broken Age, Bastion and Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut.
In our review of Undertale, we called the game a “Masterpiece” saying, “It tells its story in such a dynamic way, and with such a great understanding of the RPG player’s mindset, that it couldn’t have been told in any other way.”
In our review of Broken Age Act I, we called the game “Amazing,” saying “It’s filled with unforgettable characters, incredible puzzles, and one of the most gorgeous worlds you’ll find in games.” In our review of Broken Age Act II, we again called it “Amazing,” saying “The jokes are punchy, the twists are rewarding, and most of the puzzles are satisfying in a special way.”
Both acts of Broken Age are being released as a complete package for the Switch today.
In our review of Bastion, we called the game “Amazing” saying, “The levels, the enemies, the crazy weapon-testing mini-games — there’s always something up this game’s sleeve.”
In our review of Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut, we called the game “Great” saying, “While echoes of the original release pacing problems remain, the Director’s Cut does much to add variety to the experience with new features such as perks, quirks, and precision aiming.”
Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna ~ The Golden Country DLC is coming September 14 for those who purchased the expansion pass, and September 21 for players who did not. It’s a prequel journey to Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and includes a Challenge Battle Mode and additional rare blades.
