From the intriguing and bizarre Detective Pikachu to surreal games like NO THING, the eShop has a sense of variety to it this week. Past this, there are plenty more exciting eShop games on the horizon, as the Nindies Showcase yesterday did a good job at, well, showcasing. For now, though, let’s see what is coming for the rest of the week!
