Nintendo eShop’s New January 25, 2018 Releases
You know the drill – it’s a Thursday, meaning new games have been released on the Nintendo eShop. A famous gem joins the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console lineup, and, as usual, a nice array of indie titles grace the Switch.
NINTENDO ESHOP RELEASES – 1/25/2018
Celeste is the biggest indie title this week. Ascend to the top of Celeste Mountain as Madeline in this intuitive side-scroller. Other indie titles of note include Space Dave!, sequel to the 3DS’s Woah Dave!, and SMG Studio’s Super One More Jump.
Pokémon Crystal Version, however, joins its siblings, Pokémon Gold and Silver, in the 3DS lineup. Fans of the series are well-versed in Game Freak’s “third version” tradition, and Crystal did introduce components that remain with the franchise to this day, including in-battle animations and the ability to choose your Trainer’s gender. The Virtual Console re-release even retained the in-game Celebi event, which the original Western release omitted.
