Every week Nintendo releases a ton of great games, sometimes more than we have time to dig through. When it comes to what came out on the Nintendo Switch eShop yesterday and beyond, you can find out today on the End Game Bonus Switch eShop Spotlight! Make sure to check back every Friday for our corny, totally fake awards to some of our most anticipated Switch titles this week.
Please Play This Game award: Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice
Explore Helheim in this dark, haunting adventure by Ninja Theory LTD. If you haven’t heard of this game, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice has won tons of nominations and awards since it was released originally in 2017. Players follow Senua, a war-trodden Celtic warrior trying to save the soul of her dead lover. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice was developed through extensive research into neurology and psychosis. No messing around with this game’s award; I cannot recommend this game enough to anyone who hasn’t played it on another platform already. For an even more impactful experience, play this game with headphones.
Text Adventure Games Live award: A Dark Room
Engage in an exciting text-based story reminiscent of classic adventure games. This game will put your imagination to the test by exercising your imagination and perception. At the start you won’t have many options to pick from, but as you progress your adventure will become more complex and intense. As you know, we’re big fans of couch co-op here at End Game Bonus…and the Switch version of A Dark Room features local co-op mode. Sign us up!
Play This Before the Game of Thrones Season Premiere award: Reigns: Game of Thrones
Reigns: Game of Thrones puts an awesome twist on Devolver Digital’s hit series. Play as some of your favorite characters from the Game of Thrones franchise in their quest to claim the Iron Throne. Explore new or alternate storylines beyond the show. Players will manage 4 stats: the Army, the Church, the People, and the Treasury. Other characters will pose questions or opportunities to you, and the choices you make will raise or lower these stats and determine what kind of ruler you are. Losing all points or exceeding the total points for any of these stats will result in your death, and you’ll take over as a new character.
But wait, there’s more!
