Nintendo eShop’s New April 27, 2017 Releases

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo)

I hope you have a Nintendo Switch! This week’s eShop update gives the young gaming console two significant titles.


Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the definitive edition of the most content-heavy Mario Kart, launches tomorrow. Containing all the content you liked, including both DLC packs, Deluxe fixes the biggest problem with Mario Kart 8: Battle Mode. Additionally, you can now hold two items at once a la Double Dash!! for the GameCube. Sadly, I still lack a Switch, but I expect you to use this time to get your practice in! I’ll need a rival to challenge me once I’m online.

Puyo Puyo Tetris mixes two venerable puzzle franchises together in a crossover that miraculously left Japan. Furthermore, up to four people can join in, and a demo is up in case you’re not sold.

Here’s everything Nintendo released on the eShop this week:
