Another week goes by, another batch of games are added to the Nintendo eShop. The Nintendo Switch and 3DS family score some nice titles this week, ranging from familiar favorites to high-quality indie titles.
NINTENDO ESHOP RELEASES – 10/5/2017
Stardew Valley is the premiere offering for the Switch this week. You’re the star of this game, wherein you’re the proud owner of a farm and some farming tools. The actions of the morally questionable Joja Corporation have rendered the older, peaceful way of life nearly forgotten, but you might be able to restore your valley to its former glory!
Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions is an enhanced remake of the Game Boy Advance classic. While the core story is the same, a new bonus campaign starring Bowser’s minions provides their perspective on events as they try to defeat the villainous Fawful. The Nintendo 3DS family will visit the Beanbean Kingdom tomorrow, on October 6.
Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy provides fans of LEVEL-5’s Professor Layton series the proper seventh installment they’ve been waiting for. However, the gentlemen who headlined the prior entries has inexplicably disappeared, allowing his qualified daughter to inherit the protagonist role. How has London changed? What absurd plot twists await Katrielle? (Whatever they are, hopefully it’s not another fake city.) Lady Layton will start her sleuthing tomorrow.
