  • Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch
    • Overcooked!
      – The unbread have risen! Only you have the cooking
      skills to put their yeast to rest. The steaks have never been
      higher, so prepare to save the Onion Kingdom … again. Buddy up or
      go it alone as you cook up a storm, chopping, steaming and frying
      your way through dynamic and outright crazy levels. The Overcooked!
      game will be available on Aug. 7. (Additional accessories
      may be required for multiplayer mode. Sold separately.)
    • Dead
      – The Dead Cells game puts you in control
      of a failed alchemic experiment trying to figure out what's
      happening on a sprawling, ever-changing and cursed island. Tough
      but fair combat, responsive controls and challenging foes make for
      a demanding and cathartic action game. Dead Cells will be
      available on Aug. 7.
    • Flipping
      – Welcome to Flatwood Peaks, a small whimsical
      town with a problem – Death is on vacation. Play as Penny and help
      trapped ghosts with your trusted scythe. Flip the entire world
      around to solve puzzles on both the living and the dead side, and
      slowly uncover the mystery surrounding your own demise. The Flipping
      game will be available on Aug. 7.
    • Salt
      and Sanctuary
      – A doomed sailor is shipwrecked on an
      uncharted island. In fog-shrouded valleys, shambling figures begin
      to stir. Beneath crumbling, salt-worn structures, labyrinthine
      passageways lead to unspeakable evil, long forgotten by man. The Salt
      and Sanctuary
      game seamlessly combines fast, brutal and
      complex 2D combat with richly developed RPG mechanics. Discover,
      craft and upgrade more than 600 weapons, armor pieces, spells and
      items as you explore a cursed realm.

      new microgame collection, where you'll have seconds to complete
      300 different microgames. Better think fast to succeed! You'll use
      the touch screen, tilt the system, push buttons and rock the mic
      as you laugh through fully voiced stories featuring new and
      classic characters. The WarioWare Gold game will be
      available on Aug. 3.

Also new this week:

In addition to video games available at retail stores, Nintendo also
offers a variety of content that people can download directly to their
systems. Nintendo adds new games weekly to Nintendo eShop on the
Nintendo Switch console, the Wii U console and the Nintendo 3DS family
of systems.

Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service that features a wide variety of
content, including new and classic games, applications and demos. Users
can add money to their account balances by using a credit card or
purchasing a Nintendo eShop Card at a retail store and entering the code
from the card. All funds from one card must be loaded in Nintendo eShop
on Nintendo Switch, Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can
be used in any Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single
Nintendo Account.

Customers in the U.S. and Canada ages 18 and older can also link a
PayPal account to their Nintendo Account to purchase digital games and
content for the Nintendo Switch system both on-device and from the
Nintendo website. Once the accounts are linked, users may also use
PayPal as a payment option when buying digital content for the Wii U or
Nintendo 3DS family systems from the Nintendo website.

Remember that Nintendo Switch, Wii U, Wii, New Nintendo 3DS, New
Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 2DS XL and Nintendo 2DS
feature parental controls that let adults manage some of the content
their children can access. Nintendo 3DS players who register a Nintendo
Network ID gain access to free-to-start games and free game demos from
Nintendo eShop, and also get the latest news and information direct from
Nintendo. For more information about this and other features, visit,
