One of the best roguelikes around comes to the Switch

Following the announcement of Nintendo Labo — a line of custom-made cardboard projects for Nintendo Switch — today’s additions to the Switch eShop feel a little slim. Thankfully, they include one of the best roguelikes to come down the pike in years.

Darkest Dungeon, a title that originated on Steam as an Early Access game, has made its way to Nintendo’s portable console hybrid. I’m excited to see how the game makes use of the Switch’s touchscreen, and pleased to be able to carry my party with me wherever I go. (Just maybe make sure you lock things down with parental controls before you hand the portable over to the kids in the back seat.)

Also joining the party today on Switch is new downloadable content for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Expansion Pass holders. It will be available at 9:00 p.m. PT.

Coming up on Jan. 23 you’ll be able to pick up Lost Sphear, a classic-style role-playing game from Square Enix’s Tokyo RPG Factory. The Nintendo 3DS eShop, not to be forgotten, gets Kirby Battle Royale on the Jan. 19; a demo is available to download now.

Other new titles for the Switch that are available today include:

The Nintendo 3DS only gets a pair of new titles.

Later this week, Nintendo will have extra new games on Switch eShop. They include Baseball Riot, Nuclien and Vesta on Jan. 19; Chroma Gun arrives on Jan. 22 and Shu hits on Jan. 23.
