Nintendo eShop Update: Fitness Boxing Fist of the North Star, Splatoon 3 DLC

It’s a quieter week in this week’s eShop update, as evidenced by the fact that the biggest releases are probably DLC. If you bought a Splatoon 3 Expansion Pass, this week you’ll get your first taste of DLC as Inkpolis from the first game arrives in the latest adventure. If metroidvanias are more your thing, then you’ll want to check out Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania, which adds Dracula’s castle to the popular roguelite.

In terms of new games, the highlight is probably Fitness Boxing Fist of the North, which mixes together Fitness Boxing with the long-running manga series. The new game will let you punch to the beat to 20 songs, and you’ll get to hear voice actors from the series urging you on.

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