The Spring Sale may have long left us, but there are other big deals hitting the Nintendo Switch eShop this month — yep it’s the AniMAY sale! Tons of anime-related games are getting price cut this May; from RPGs, fighting games, to a soccer title. Together with 26 brand-new titles coming to the eShop this and next week, let’s see what anime-goodness (or just non-anime games) they have to offer this time around.
New Releases This Week
The Japanese NES (known as Family Computer) exclusive murder mystery is finally available with English text for the first time. In the first entry, The Girl Who Stands Behind, a student loses her life while investigating the story of a ghost that haunts the Ushimitsu High School. And in The Missing Heir, you have to solve a murder involving the wealthy Ayashiro family and your past that’s clouded by amnesia. If you purchase one of the Famicom Detective Club games in eShop, you can get $10 off the other. Discounts will be applied during the checkout process.
Aside from two classic games that resurfaced once again, there is also a stylish runner with dope-tastic soundtrack Aerial_Knight’s Never Yield and Subnautica along with its freezing cool Below Zero expansion. The demo for World’s End Club from renowned game writers Kotaro Uchikoshi (Zero Escape) and Kazutaka Kodaka (Danganronpa) is available to download as well. In total there are 26 new games coming out:
