I’ve just come back from UPS having bidden a tearful goodbye to my Nintendo Switch and its dock. The latter gave out on me, but they should return home in a couple of weeks. Until then, there’s plenty for me to play!

NINTENDO ESHOP RELEASES – 9/21/2017

Pokkén Tournament DX brings the Wii U’s flagship Pokémon title over to the Switch, adding some extra goodies to sweeten the package. Most notably, Decidueye, a fan favorite from Sun and Moon, swoops in to join the battle! DX launches on September 22.

SteamWorld Dig 2 unearths indie darling Rusty for another side-scrolling romp! Image & Form took cues from Nintendo’s Metroid series for their latest Switch title, which I’ve heard very positive things about!

Pokémon Gold Version and Pokémon Silver Version marked the second generation of the multimedia franchise, and Trainers have very fond memories of it. With 251 Pokémon in total, not to mention two regions to explore and the debut of the Dark and Steel types, these installments kick grass! By the way, if you purchase either title, you’ll obtain a code for the mythical Celebi that can be redeemed within the current generation games.
