Ultimate, Super Mario Odyssey, NBA 2K19, Fortnite and FIFA 19, as well as indie hits like Hollow Knight, Celeste, GRISand Overcooked! 2.

When browsing Nintendo eShop, Nintendo Switch owners will find games everyone will love across nearly every genre, including recently released games like popular platformer New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, two-player co-op action game Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroesfrom Grasshopper Manufacture Inc. and turn-based strategy game Wargroove from Chucklefish LTD. On March 29, players can cozy up to the Yoshi’s Crafted World game and journey through themed stages to solve puzzles and find hidden treasures. On the flip side, stages can be played backward, providing new perspectives to explore and a new challenge to locate all the hidden Poochy Pups.
