This week's Nintendo Download brings the highly anticipated Fire Emblem Warriors, another take on the classh Musuo hack n' slash genre with one of Nintendo's beloved franchises. Pre-release buzz has been good for this one, and if it's anything like Hyrule Warriors, it will at least be a satisfying guilty pleasure. Also on Switch this week is Just Dance 2018, Ubisoft's annual reminder that the Wii era never really left us.
It's gratifying to see so much content headed to Switch; it's getting Syberia this week, Spelunker Party!, The Mummy Demastered and the "we swear it's not 2000 AD please don't sue us" top-down shooter JYDGE. Even early in the Wii U's life with the hype train stilling rolling it was scarcely getting a trickle of content for its eShop, so Switch's embarrassment of riches here is a good portent of solid third party content to come.
Hit the break for the full list of digital titles this week, and links to sales on the Switch, Wii U and 3DS eShops.

Also new this week:
In addition to video games available at retail stores, Nintendo also offers a variety of content that people can download directly to their systems. Nintendo adds new games weekly to Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo Switch console, the Wii U console and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.
Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service that features a wide variety of content, including new and classic games, applications and demos. Users can add money to their account balances by using a credit card or purchasing a Nintendo eShop Card at a retail store and entering the code from the card. All funds from one card must be loaded in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch, Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can be used in any Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single Nintendo Account.
Customers in the U.S. and Canada ages 18 and older can also link a PayPal account to their Nintendo Account to purchase digital games and content for the Nintendo Switch system both on-device and from the Nintendo website. Once the accounts are linked, users may also use PayPal as a payment option when buying digital content for the Wii U or Nintendo 3DS family systems from the Nintendo website.
The Wii Shop Channel offers games and applications and uses Wii Points, which can be purchased via the Wii Shop Channel.
Remember that Nintendo Switch, Wii U, Wii, New Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL, New Nintendo 2DS XL and Nintendo 2DS feature parental controls that let adults manage some of the content their children can access. Nintendo 3DS players who register a Nintendo Network ID gain access to free-to-start games and free game demos from Nintendo eShop, and also get the latest news and information direct from Nintendo.
