Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch
- Capcom Arcade Stadium – Dozens of Capcom’s most beloved arcade classics are on Nintendo Switch as part of Capcom Arcade Stadium. Rewind gameplay, adjust game speed or difficulty, and select from a variety of display options to relive that sweet arcade goodness. Get 1943 – The Battle of Midway for free, then purchase game packs or the standalone Ghosts ‘n Goblins add-on to build your collection.
- Persona 5 Strikers – Join the Phantom Thieves and strike back against the corruption overtaking cities across Japan. A summer vacation with close friends takes a sudden turn as a distorted reality emerges… Reveal the truth and redeem the hearts of those imprisoned at the center of the crisis!
- Curse of the Dead Gods – Your desire to seek untold riches, eternal life and divine powers leads to this accursed temple, a seemingly-infinite labyrinth of bottomless pits, deadly traps and monsters. Your greed will lead you to death, but that is not an escape. Rise to fight again. Delve deeper again. Defy the malignant deities that linger in this place. Battle through hordes of enemies in dark, cavernous passages filled with traps and secrets of all sorts – fire-spewing statues, explosives, hidden spikes and worse. Collect mystical Relics and an arsenal of weapons to make yourself unstoppable. Corruption builds in you with every step – encourage or ignore it, but each powerful curse can be a double-edged sword.
- Project TRIANGLE STRATEGY (working title) Demo – Recently announced in the latest Nintendo Direct, this new tactical RPG from SQUARE ENIX is launching for Nintendo Switch in 2022 … but you can try out a free demo for the game now!
- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – There’s never been a bigger cast of characters or a better time to jump into the ultimate brawl! Super Smash Bros. Ultimate features a giant lineup of video game icons duking it out in fierce battles that take place across dozens of signature locations from throughout gaming history. It also includes more than 1,000 music tracks from classic gaming franchises, cementing its legacy as the ultimate tribute to gaming’s past and future. Plus, with the Fighters Pass Vol. 2 DLC, which can be purchased for $29.99, you’ll also get access to Min Min from the ARMS game, Steve & Alex from Minecraft and Sephiroth from the FINAL FANTASY series, as well as the recently announced Pyra/Mythra and two more yet-to-be announced fighters as they release. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is currently available in Nintendo eShop.
