Everyone’s favourite pink Nintendo mascot is back to lead the eShop listings this week, as Kirby makes his way to Nintendo Switch! There isn’t quite the vast quantity of releases we’ve been used to recently, but this lets some other new games, like Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, get a bit more of a chance to shine. So, then, here’s your new eShop games for the coming days!

This week, to make up for the lack of the extra information sections that used to be in What’s on eShop, I tried out having the genre and a picked-out fact included for each release. You can let us know in the comments whether you like this or not; your feedback can really help us out!
