The Nintendo Switch eShop needs to improve this essential feature

Isn’t it a great feeling to find money in your pocket when you didn’t expect it? For gamers, it’s equally exciting to find a random game you didn’t expect to be good at, but end up falling in love with. Or so Zach of SwitchForce would say. In their latest video, he draws attention to a very important aspect of the Switch eShop. And that is discoverability.

Speaking of the rush to come across a surprisingly great game, Zach adds

“And let me tell you, on the Nintendo Switch eShop it’s really hard sometimes. You just got all these little images and you’re like- what is this?

The eShop needs a better way for fans to discover titles, some of which turn out to be hits no one has heard of. These smaller titles don’t have the same marketing mechanism behind them as the bigger AAA titles. But what they have is addictive gameplay and beautiful design.

Zach notes that Nintendo needs to take responsibility for revitalizing the eShop. As the company expands the Switch Online expansion pack service, making the eShop more visible for such surprise games could be a game-changer. Otherwise, it could turn into Steam, where a plethora of titles will never be discovered due to the sheer volume on the platform.
