Did you download the Unicorn Overlord demo a few weeks ago? Then this week’s eShop update is probably one you’ve been looking for since the game was announced, as the full game arrives on the Switch. It’s a gorgeous-looking RPG from a studio — Vanillaware — that’s the master of them, so be sure to check it out.
