Featured Games in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch:
MAQUETTE – MAQUETTE is a first-person recursive puzzle game that takes you into a world where every building, plant and object are simultaneously tiny and staggeringly huge.
Head to the center of the world and you’ll feel like a giant, towering over buildings and walls.
But venture further out and start to feel small as things get larger and larger – to the point where cracks in the ground become chasms! In MAQUETTE you will explore the scales of everyday problems in a modern-day love story, where sometimes the smallest of issues can become insurmountable obstacles.
Solve the puzzle today on Nintendo Switch!
Cassette Beasts – Explore New Wirral, a remote island inhabited by strange creatures you’ve only dreamed of, nightmares you hopefully haven’t and a cast of brave folks who use cassette tapes to transform for battle.
To find a way home you’ll need to explore every inch of the island and record monsters to your trusty cassette tapes to gain their abilities!
Cassette Beasts is available today!
