However if you’re like me and the title has somehow managed to slip past you all these years, the enhanced version of the game Retro City Rampage DX, is now available on the Nintendo Switch eShop giving players one more console option to give the game a spin. Regardless of if you’ve played it before or not, it is one of the strongest games on the Nintendo Switch eShop and worthy of your time.

Inti Creates struck nostalgia gold with the 3DS eShop series Azure Striker Gunvolt. From the creators of the Mega Man Zero series, both titles were fun throwbacks to Super NES era side-scrolling shooters with plenty of power-ups and challenges conquer that added an immense amount of replay value. The series received a spin-off called Mighty Gunvolt on the 3DS which was to 8-bit Mega Man what Azure Striker Gunvolt was to 16-bit Mega Man. The spin-off series continues, this time on the Nintendo Switch and the 3DS with Mighty Gunvolt Burst. It continues the old school gameplay of the past Gunvolt games with a new twist.
