Nintendo eShop’s New June 8, 2017 Releases

Hey, what’d you think of this week’s Pokémon announcements? Also, E3 is next week! Hopefully some eye-catching titles joined the Nintendo eShop this week to help ease the wait.


Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is, in terms of quality, presumably the best title to grace the Nintendo Switch this week. The popular, long running side-scrolling hero’s signature dancing techniques accompany her in her first HD foray. Plus, the DLC from the prior Half-Genie Hero releases is included.

Cars 3: Driven to Win will roam into stores on June 13. Furthermore, a cheaper Wii U version is coming on the same day. Based on the popular film series by Disney and Pixar, Driven to Win lets you enhance your skills for use in its six modes. Can you become the Cars’ Ultimate Champion?

Finally, Alien Crush and Neutopia II round out the week with some 16-bit goodness for the Wii U.
