Nintendo eShop Update: Cult of the Lamb, Blossom Tales II

We may be in the midst of a traditionally slow time for releases, but you couldn’t tell from this week’s eShop update. Among the dozens of new games coming to Switch this week, the Two Point franchise goes from hospital to college with Two Point Campus, Blossom Tales returns with more Zelda-flavored goodness in Blossom Tales II, and you can create your own cult with Cult of the Lamb. It’s an intriguing mix of games, and all three look very promising.

Check out the full list below, and also check out the updated list from Nintendo’s Game Store, here.
