Nintendo eShop Update Week 30

This week’s full Japanese Nintendo eShop update with new releases, preloads, demos, downloadable content, sales, rankings, and more!

Select highlights

The highlight of this week is the second Gesshi~zu game for Nintendo Switch with Gesshi~zu: Mori no Chiisana Nakama-tachi. The aim of the game is to make the Gesshi~zu happy! Gesshi~zu are adorable animals who live in the forest and love eating delicious food, collecting cute accessories, and playing games! There are three mini-game modes in total and 15 mini-games that you can play with friends, family, or against the computer. Mini-games vary from fishing for fishies to eating apples on a frozen pond! There are more than 200 different kinds of food, accessories, and forest items for you to collect to keep your Gesshi~zu happy!

Also launching this week is the 1992 UPL horizontally-scrolling shoot ’em up Arcade Archives Koutetsu Yousai Strahl, the party puzzle game SUSHI REVERSI, the reverse horror game CARRION, the visual novel game Grisaia Phantom Trigger 03, and many others.

Available for preload this week include the horror adventure game Corpse Party: Blood Drive, which is the final installment of the Heavenly Host saga, and it’s finally getting a Japanese release on August 6. The pre-order price is ¥1,980 (from ¥2,970) so there’s an incentive to snap it up early. The adult visual novel KukkoroDays was also newly announced (read the full details here).

Other newsworthy pieces include an eShop listing for October’s release of Shin Megami Tensei III NOCTURNE HD REMASTER (sadly the Japanese release doesn’t have English support, so most westerners will have to wait until next Spring), a demo for Slayin 2, an incredible 85% off discount for KILL la KILL the GAME -IF-, and so much more.
