Nintendo Switch eShop gets hungry and horny this week

From sushi to ‘sexy’

We’ve got one last Nintendo eShop update ahead of E3 2018, and it’s packed with a variety of games that have ... very little in common. That’s not a bad thing, of course — but this is an update for players both young and decidedly older.

The biggest name on the list this week is Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido. The game will launch simultaneously on both Nintendo 3DS and Switch. That sounds good to us, based on our early impressions; the action game combines a sushi conveyor belt with puzzle-like matching to unleash attacks against friends or opponents.

On the complete other end of the spectrum is a game we’ve covered before, when it launched on the Japanese eShop earlier this year. Pure / Electric Love “What do you want?” - Eri Kitami - is now available for Switch owners outside of Japan, although it appears to have arrived in Japanese. There’s an English translation of the game’s official description, at least, which rules:

A love-likeness pseudo-talk game “Electric Love” that is a topic in the smartphone.A little embarrassing, in a conversation that pounding, romance skill UP! !

In this work, fetish cosplayer ‘Eri Kitami’ is a welcome otiyuki blog, please tell her with hyper deadly tension! What?

Rotation in a good sense! While being healed, make the brain gear turn at super speed with maid, bondage etc, gallery image, movie!

To each their own.

Other familiar games include a new entry in the BlazBlue fighting series, BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle. Our beginner’s guide suggests it’s simple enough for newcomers, but not too relaxed for veteran fighting fans. There’s also the sequel to The Banner Saga, a follow-up to stone-cold classic Shaq-Fu and a demo for the upcoming return of the Shining fantasy role-playing game series, Shining Resonance Refrain.
