Nintendo eShop Update: Breakers Collection, House of Da Vinci 3


If you’re looking to get an idea of how quiet this week’s eShop update is, the official news release from Nintendo below spends a lot of time talking about what Nintendo characters wear hats, in honour of National Hat Day (which is January 15th, so only a few hat-shopping days to go!).

And with all due respect to the games being published this week, this seems like a good week to either dive into your backlog or take a look at the many games on sale in the eShop as part of the Nintendo New Year Sale. There’s sure to be some people who are pleased to see the release of the Breakers Collection (which combines ’90s fighting games Breakers and Breakers Revenge), and The House of Da Vince has sold enough copies that The House of Da Vinci 3 is out this week, but you might be better off grabbing The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening or Persona 5 Royal while they’re cheap.

See the full list below, and also check out Nintendo’s updated Game Store list here.

This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following content:

  • Digital Spotlight:
    • These Games Have “Hat” It! – It’s National Hat Day this week, so why not make like Mario and tip your lid with these behatted Nintendo friends! Mario and Luigi likely come to mind first when considering favorite capped characters, and you can join them on several adventures on the Nintendo Switch system, including Super Mario OdysseyLuigi’s Mansion 3Mario Kart 8 DeluxeMario Party Superstars and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. Of course, Hyrule wouldn’t be the same without its green-hatted hero Link – even if he starts off in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild … hatless! Don’t worry, though, it won’t be long before you have an opportunity to gather up some gear to accompany his pointed ears. Then, cap things off with Kirby as he dons a variety of Copy Abilities – complete with fashionable headwear! – in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. Super Mario Odyssey, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario Party Superstars, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Kirby and the Forgotten Land are all available now in Nintendo eShop.
