It’s a big week with Mega Man Zero/ZX Collection, Devil May Cry 3, new NES and SNES games, Samurai Showdown, and some fresh Sega Ages.
Feast from famine
The games hitting in 2020 have been few and far between here in the early goings. This week though, is a feast for those who’ve been waiting patiently for some new stuff to play on their Switch.
Nintendo welcomes in (and back) several huge franchises and updates it’s virtual, subscriber-only, NES and SNES slate. I’m not going to bother even talking about it, just scroll down and take a look.
