Featured Games in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch:
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom – In this sequel to the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game, you’ll begin your voyage on a mysterious floating island in the skies above Hyrule. It is up to you to use your abilities to make it back to the land of Hyrule and battle against the enemies that threaten the kingdom. Explore, create and discover the sprawling world with your imagination and Link’s new abilities. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom game will be available on May 12.
CONVERGENCE: A League of Legends Story – Rewind the past, control the future. Traverse the sprawling city of Zaun as Ekko, a young inventor with a device to rewind time. He and his friends must work together to keep their city safe, but as danger looms and secrets come to light, Ekko realizes he can’t trust anyone—not even himself.
Developed by Double Stallion Games, CONVERGENCE: A League of Legends Story is a 2D, story-driven, action-platformer that focuses on tight, dynamic combat and distinct exploration opportunities afforded by Ekko’s ability to travel in space and time.
