Nintendo eShop Update: Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

There’s no question what the highlight of this week’s eShop update is: The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom arrives on the Switch tomorrow.

There are other interesting games in the update as well, like Super Dungeon Maker (think of it as Mario Maker, but for 2D top-down RPGs) and The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man Of Medan (which runs at 24 FPS, if you’re the type who cares about that stuff), but realistically, Tears of the Kingdom is all anyone will be interested in on the Switch this week and for the weeks to come. Breath of the Wild is widely hailed as one of the best games ever, so it’ll be interesting to see whether the sequel can live up to that.

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