Last week’s Nintendo eShop update was purely focused on the Switch, and this week’s update shares that sentiment. Regardless, there’s a solid amount of variety present.


LEGO Worlds will race into stores on September 5. Composed of “an open environment of procedurally-generated Worlds,” you can use your tools to explore them in any way you’d like. Catch a ride on your motorcycle, gorilla or ship and collect treasures to enhance your Worlds. Moreover, given how the game’s environments are built from LEGOs, you can customize them to your taste!

League of Evil was originally a mobile game, but the sinister forces have spread on to the Switch! This indie title discernably takes after Super Meat Boy, following it up with similar 2D levels of platforming. 140 stages are included, as well as a level editor. So, are you itching for some Meat Boy-esque thrills? One of my Source Gaming friends thought League of Evil was a solid effort.

Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack, from Inti Creates, contains Azure Striker Gunvolt and Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 in one package with a few improvements to boot. If you’re a fan of Capcom’s Mega Man Zero series and you haven’t played either Gunvolt title, then this collection is a must-buy. One of my Source Gaming friends can attest to that.

Annihilation, the sole Wii U offering for the week, was made by the team that made The Letter. That didn’t scare me off from buying the overhead shooter, however. You can find my review over yonder.
