Nintendo eShop new releases (week 49)

It's a quiet week for the Nintendo eShop, as the list of new titles is modest. Still, there may be something there for your liking.

Loop Hero is Devolver Digital's newest hit. In this card-based RPG you create the world around the main character, giving the game an interesting gameplay twist.

Fans of the Yu-Gi-Oh! card games can get going with Yu-Gi-Oh! RUSH DUEL: Dawn of the Battle Royale!! As the title already states, this game focuses on the intense rush duel rules, a twist on the classic Yu-Gi-Oh! gameplay.
