Nintendo eShop Update: Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3, Dragon Ball: The Breakers

This week’s eShop update is chock full of games, but it’s an especially good week if you’re a fan of online multiplayer. First, DRAGON BALL: THE BREAKERS offers asymmetrical action as seven players team up (or go it alone) as they try to stay alive against the Raider. On top of that, Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway features online races with up to a dozen players — though it’s also got a wealth of single-player content for anyone who prefers gaming solo.

There’s also a tonne of other new content hitting the eShop this week, so see the full list below, and also check out Nintendo’s updated Game Store list, here.
