Nintendo eShop’s New May 4, 2017 Releases

A new month is upon us with which new possibilities await! Speaking of, if you’ve followed my ramblings since March 2, then I have good news: I finally secured a Nintendo Switch, and it should arrive soon enough. And when I’ve spent enough time with it and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, I’ll review them! Until then, let’s sit back and look over this week’s eShop update.


NBA Playgrounds recalls the whimsical NBA-branded games of yesteryear. Recruit your favorite players for exciting 2-on-2 matches. Utilize specials moves, learn the game, and maybe you’ll be given the opportunity to take on the legendary Allen Iverson!

Blaster Master Zero launched for the Switch and Nintendo 3DS on March 9. According to one of my friends, it’s really good! However, a demo is now available on both platforms if you’d like to try it.

Bonk’s Revenge was the prehistoric hero’s second side-scroller. Hudson’s aptly named star has two skills: jumping and sticking foes down with his skull. The carnivore can strengthen himself with the wayward meat hidden in each stage, which should help dispatch the bosses! Moreover, players can earn the right to enter eight bonus stages, and the Dinosaur Train will visit you after a boss battle. Its appearance is determined by how many Smileys you gathered.
