Nintendo eShop: What’s New For 8/3/17

Nintendo eShop


Today’s Thursday and that means the Nintendo eShop is updating yet again. That means players will see new games pop up on their store as well as several titles being discounted. Nintendo doesn’t have a big game release up their sleeve but the Nintendo Switch is getting a few new games.

The headliner of the Switch games is Retro City Rampage DX. The game looks to be best described as a callback to the world of Grand Theft Auto before it went full-3D with the third installment.

Nintendo is also celebrating Star Fox by offering discounts on three titles. Star Fox 64 is a little over 20 years old now and don’t forget that the previously unreleased Star Fox 2 is going to be part of the Super NES Classic Edition.

Here’s the list of sales and new games hitting the eShop this week:
