The Switch certainly had a lot of goodies for the eShop over the past couple of days. Earlier this week, fan-favorite indie games Superhot and Hotline Miami Collection launched immediately after the Indie World showcase. Next, just yesterday at Gamescom, Square Enix dropped a surprisingly beefy demo for the upcoming Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition. Of course, we also got new NES Online titles yesterday in the form of Kung-Fu Heroes and Vice Project Doom.

All of that said, there is still a ton more ground to cover with new arcade classics joining this week’s lineup of Nintendo Downloads as well!

For your convenience, here’s the list for some of the new releases available on the eShop:

Nintendo Download, Aug. 22, 2019: Feeling Super Hot!

This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:

  • Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch

    • SUPERHOT – Blurring the lines between cautious strategy and unbridled mayhem, the SUPERHOT game is the FPS in which time moves only when you move. No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It’s just you, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing weapons off fallen enemies to shoot, slice and maneuver through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets.
    • Hotline Miami Collection – The Hotline Miami Collection game contains both games in the neon-soaked, brutally challenging Hotline Miami series from Dennaton Games.
    • DRAGON QUEST XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition– Demo Version – You are the Luminary, the hunted hero who will protect the land from destruction in the latest RPG from the iconic DRAGON QUEST series. With a ragtag band of adventurers, you’ll engage in well-balanced, turn-based battles and embark on quests across the kingdom of Erdrea. Try out this free demo before the game launches for the Nintendo Switch system on Sept. 27. You can even carry your progress to the full game.
    • Kung-Fu Heroes – Monsters have taken Princess Min-Min and the 10 treasures of the land, and the people have fallen into sorrow. Only Kung-Fu Masters Jacky and Lee can save the princess and retrieve the treasures. Their journey will take them to eight different castles filled with hosts of traps and obstacles. Use punches and the Miracle Kick to defeat the enemies. You will need quick wits and lightning reflexes to make it to the last castle.
    • Vice: Project Doom – There exists a group of undercover detectives who dare stand up to the evil in the world… They are known as Vice. Officer Quinn Hart, a member of Vice, is on the case and after the truth. High-speed car chases, action-packed battles employing three types of weapons and a mode with three 3D rail-shooting stages all bring this cyberpunk world to life.
