In just a matter of days, we’re finally entering May. And to send us off, Nintendo is releasing a new Pokemon game among 18 other brand new titles in the eShop. Let’s see what they have to offer in the last week of April 2021.
New Releases This Week
Two new classic titles headlines this week’s Nintendo eShop releases. First, New Pokemon Snap. A continuation to the fan-favorite Nintendo 64 title, here your task is to explore the lush scenery of the Lental region to snap photos of wild Pokemon in their natural habitats. Then, after completing a course, you can edit aspects of your photo in Re-Snap mode for a personal touch and share them with family and friends. You can even grab some free Nintendo Points from the Explore the Lental Region website. And second, R-Type Final 2, the latest game from the long-running shoot-em-up series, R-Type. Fans of space-themed arcade side-scrolling shooters wouldn’t want to miss this out.
Meanwhile, Super Mario Party just got an online mode update and Apex Legends will be getting the Legacy update on May 4, adding a new game mode, Legend, and Battle Pass.
