This week Nintendo Switch gets a lot of love with a number of new releases available for download, and some sales on classic (and classic looking) titles went live, as well.

Switch eShop

Retro City Rampage DX – $14.99 – Cause chaos and destruction in the city of Theftropolis in this Grand Theft Auto inspired open world action-adventure title from Vblank Entertainment. Retro City Rampage DX, an enhanced version of the original title, was originally released on Nintendo 3DS in 2014. With 50 story missions and 30 challenge levels, there’s a lot of rampaging to be done.

Slime-san – $11.99 – In this retro-styled platformer with puzzle solving elements, a lone slime is minding his own business when he is suddenly swallowed whole by a huge worm. He is then tasked with finding his way out through five worlds with 20 stages, with each world culminating in a boss battle.

Strikers 1945  – $7.99 – If you’d rather play games that actually are old, rather than games that are stylized to look that way, look no further than Strikers 1945. The game is a vertically-scrolling arcade shooter from 1995 featuring WW2 planes facing off against hoards of enemies and it even has a TATE mode, which allows the Switch to be played sideways to mimic the portrait-oriented screens of arcade cabinets.

Wii U eShop

Flight of Light – $8.00 – Fly through exotic, otherworldly landscapes in-time to music while leaving a trail of stars and colors in your wake. This rhythm game incorporates an upbeat soundtrack with a mix of EDM, funk and other genres.

3DS Download

VoxelMaker – $4.99 – This fully-featured 3D model editor allows the user to employ both buttons and touch screen to create 3D models and scenes, create, edit and insert custom color schemes, share them on Miiverse or export them to SD card and more.
