The Nintendo Switch library gets a lot bigger today

Each action, adventure, and beat-em-up style game has its own special place in NeoGeo history, so it would be totally rude to leave any of them out of the Nintendo Switch's long list of upcoming titles. The Nintendo Switch eShop Update 3.9.17 is now live, and you can grab legacy games a-plenty. Today, the company is bringing its first batch of downloadable games.

There are now eight more games to choose from on the Switch, spanning both the old and the new. On the 3DS you'll find Frontier Days, Pink Dot Blue Dot, Blaster Master Zero, Mini Sports Collection, Candy Hoarder, and Blue-Collar Astronaut (that last title is intriguing to me).

What happened was he bought Blaster Master Zero from the Japanese eShop with a Japanese Nintendo account, and when the game rolled out to the US store, he didn't need to purchase it anymore with his USA account.

With all said and done, what do you think of the games Nintendo is launching to expand the Switch lineup? With classic arcade titles and retro-influenced games, this new batch of video games seems created to tug at the nostalgia of old-school gamers.

The Neo Geo games are six classic coin-op titles for the 1980s and 1990s, including Metal Slug 3, Waku Waku 7, King of Fighters '98.

Each one costs $7.99 and belong to the "ACA NEOGEO" series, which is composed of ports of classic NeoGeo games. Also, it has a co-op mode, supporting up to two players.

Voez is an enchanting rhythm game that's been adapted from Android and iOS specifically for the Nintendo Switch. The gameplay is centered on the touchscreen, so if the switch is sitting in the dock, there's no way to hit the notes for each song.
