Nintendo eShop’s New March 16, 2017 Releases

We’re over halfway through another week, so it’s time for a Nintendo eShop update. The Switch got many coveted indie titles today, and the Wii U received a treasure from Nintendo’s DS backlog.


The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ blends the dungeon crawling and role-playing genres with a loose adaption of a Biblical tale. Known for its randomly generated levels, you’ll receive a different experience every time you boot up the game. Grab your gun, and loot the over-the-top underworld!

Human Resource Machine is known as “a puzzle game for nerds.” Your boss grants you a job in each level. However, you’ll instead program your robot helper to do it for you. Perform satisfactorily and your boss won’t lay you off!

Little Inferno is an adventure game made by three people. Their lovingly-made project proved itself, and it was recognized in multiple categories in the Independent Games Festival. Little Inferno is billed as a game “that takes place almost entirely in front of a fireplace,” so bask in the comfort of the warmth and have fun with your toys.

World of Goo is one of those indie games that I consider to be required reading. Its physics-based gameplay was a hit at the time, and it should hold up. Hoist the Goo Balls!

ACA NEOGEO THE KING OF FIGHTERS ’94 is the latest Neo Geo classic to grace the Switch. Furthermore, the previous entries in the ACA NEOGEO series were updated to smoothen the experience.

Picross 3D was one of the best puzzle games on the Nintendo DS. So, if you missed it then, you now have more than 300 puzzles to clear. Select puzzles have certain conditions to provide extra challenge, and you’re given a score upon completion. Picross games are basically about uncovering the hidden images by scratching off the incorrect blocks. If your logic is fine, then you’re golden!
