The obvious star of this week’s eShop update is the return of the weird mini-game king: Wario. He’s back with WarioWare: Move It!, which will feature another 200+ mini-games, all of them promising to be absolutely bizarre. It arrives November 3rd.
Beyond WarioWare, there are quite a few other interesting-looking games. There’s a full remake of 1998’s STAR OCEAN THE SECOND STORY R, Christmas-themed metroidvania Ebenezer and the Invisible World, and a licensed 3D platformer that looks far better than it has any right to be in The Smurfs 2 – The Prisoner of the Green Stone.
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:
- Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch
- WarioWare: Move It! – Get moving with a multitude of motion-based microgames in the newest entry in the WarioWare series! Grab a pair of Joy-Con controllers and shake, punch, dance, wiggle and even curtsey through over 200 lightning-fast microgames. Get into poses called “forms,” including the chicken (like Ba-KAW) and confident Fashionista, then get it moving. You can even battle it out with up to four players* locally in Party Mode, where you’ll race to reach the goal without getting caught by Medusa or take on a dicey board game with Wario’s very own rules. Move alongside your friends in these laugh-worthy contests where everyone can get excited! The WarioWare: Move It game is available Nov. 3.
