A very Switch-Heavy eShop update this week which I have to imagine will be great news to many. This week's a big one as Bayonetta 1 & 2 ports arrive to the Switch. One of Nintendo Switch's bigger exclusives, having a AAA-action game like this on the go has to be a real treat. Caroline and I (Donnie) are both in on Bayonetta and hope to provide some feedback next week on the Nintendo Shack.
And if you're not one to be seduced by ass-kicking witches - Layers of Fear, Old Man's Journey, Xeodrifter and another DLC drop for Fire Emblem Warriors means there's plenty to choose from.
This Week On Nintendo Switch:
Bayonetta – Bayonetta is a butt-kicking, havoc-wreaking witch, and she’ll shoot, whip and slice as she uncovers the truth about her own past. Her weapons and moves are all stylishly over-the-top, but she can also dodge attacks to slow down time, and inflict Torture Attacks on her enemies. Use Wicked Weaves to summon Infernal Demons, dodge enemies’ dangerous attacks to slow down time and punish angels with deadly devices. You can even dress Bayonetta up in four Nintendo-themed costumes: Princess Peach, Princess Daisy, Link and Samus Aran. Bayonetta will be available on Feb. 16.
Bayonetta 2 – Bayonetta’s back and more powerful than ever. Wield wild weapons and execute deadly moves – like the powerful Umbran Climax – to take out angels and demons in this breathtaking and critically acclaimed action game. The Bayonetta 2 game also features an online and local wireless two-player cooperative mode in which players bet halos on their performance and work together to amplify their sass, cause destruction and score some riches. (Additional accessories are required for multiplayer mode and are sold separately.) Bayonetta 2 will be available on Feb. 16.

- Fire Emblem Warriors Season Pass (for Nintendo Switch/New Nintendo 3DS) – New playable characters, History Maps, costumes and more have come to the Fire Emblem Warriors game. Here’s what’s in the Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon pack: three new characters, three new History Maps, four new costumes, new armor break models, new support conversations, new weapons and new weapon attributes.
