Every week, Nintendo releases a list of new games coming to the Switch. It is, almost always, a very long list. This week’s list includes Spry Fox’s Cozy Grove, Switch Online exclusive Pac-Man 99, the Switch version of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV, and 28 more games, many of which you will care absolutely nothing about.

We started doing The Nintendo Download as a weekly post back when WiiWare launched back in 2008, then sorted petered off after a few years when the game selection became sparse. That is no longer the case. Nintendo regularly adds between 20 and 30 games to the Switch every week, so keeping track might be wise. Also, every week I marvel at the amount of crap dropped on the eShop, and now you can too.

Nintendo’s weekly press release generally highlights a few stand-out games. This week those games are the aforementioned Cozy Grove, Pac-Man 99, and Trails of Cold Steel IV, along with dark comedy RPG Don’t Give Up: A Cynical Tale and Say No! More, a fun game about learning to let people down.

Here’s what else is coming out this week.

Hey Mike! I’m super happy to see this weekly report making a comeback!

Can I make a suggestion? Can the list at the end include all games, including the ones you talked about in the paragraphs above (like Cozy Grove)? This would make it consistent with the “This Week in Games” articles, and helps people who like to just skip to the list and click on what titles sound interesting.
