Snake Pass was one of the earlier games to hit the eShop last year. By all accounts, the title did very well. Thanks to Snake Pass’ success, Sumo Digital is sticking with the concept – and it looks like we can expect something early this year.
Sumo tweeted the following earlier today:
At the moment, that tease is the only thing we have to go on. Sumo should have something more concrete to share soon.
Ratalakia Games is partnering with Rotten Mage on a new game for Switch. At some point this year, Spacejacked will be heading to the eShop.

Posted 5 days ago by Brian in News, Switch eShop | 5 Comments
Switch is already home to a few different shoot ’em ups. However, Brazilian studio Loomiarts hopes to stand out with Squadron 51, which offers a very unique visual style.
In Squadron 51, you’ll take on extraterrestrial enemies in aircraft battles with an aesthetic inspired by sci-fi movies from the ’50s. The game will feature six levels with a variety of environments, four aircrafts, and local two-player multiplayer. You’ll find that the story unfolds through cut-scenes and dialogue between pilots during gameplay.
Squadron 51 is planned for the end of 2018. We’ve posted a gameplay video below.
“Currently no plans” for Netflix on Switch
Posted 5 days ago by Matt in News, Switch eShop | 47 Comments
Multimedia and streaming apps have been on the top of many people’s Switch wishlists. Last year, NicoNico was made available on the Switch in Japan, followed by Hulu in North America. Netflix seems like an obvious candidate for the system – after all, it even hit the Wii U. However, it seems like that won’t be happening any time soon. Responding to a request for a Switch version on Twitter, the Netflix customer service account stated that there are “currently no plans for Netflix on Nintendo Switch”.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that the streaming service will never be on the system – but it does seem like it’ll be a while until it happens.
