The Isle of Armor

Nintendo eShop Update

This week’s Japanese Nintendo eShop update with 20 new games releasing, plus The Isle of Armor DLC for Pokémon Sword & Shield…

Select highlights

The highlight of this week is The Isle of Armor content for Pokémon Sword & Shield which is the first new adventure unlocked by the Expansion Pass and includes newly discovered Pokémon such as Galarian Slowbro, new Gigantamax forms such as Gigantamax Venusaur and Gigantamax Blastoise, and the Legendary Pokémon Urshifu. We’ve posted a more in-depth look at the content at this post. It’s available on the 17th for Pokémon Sword & Shield and priced at ¥2,980. The pack will also include The Crown Tundra, which launches in the fall of 2020. 

Also releasing this week is the Namco Museum Archives as Namcot Collection. The full Japanese line-up is listed at this post where it will be a free download with Wagyan Land as a free game, with the other 10 titles priced at ¥330 each, plus the 2007 Famicom arranged version of Pac-Man Championship Edition us available for free to those that purchase all the games.

Zumba Burn It Up! also releases this week as Zumba de Shibou Nenshou! where it will be published by Sega for the Japanese market. How it performs commercially will be interesting due to the domestic success of both Ring Fit Adventure and Fitness Boxing. Over 30 songs are included, although it’s the same line-up as the western release of the game.

Also available this week is Working Zombies from the Picross developers Jupiter. Working Zombies is an action puzzle title where you play as zombie flight attendants, nursery school teachers, hairstylists, and plumbers, in over 100 stages, where you work hard to gain the approval of humans. A demo for the game is also now available.
