May 11th, 2017

This is the first Thursday where I feel like the content making its way to the Nintendo Switch eShop is a bit skimpy, but that doesn’t mean there are no big releases this week. Minecraft is headed to Switch with the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack available for free, while Nintendo is offering some new rewards for My Nintendo users to celebrate the release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe last week.

Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch

Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition – Explore randomly generated worlds and build amazing things from the simplest of homes to the grandest of castles. Play in Creative Mode with unlimited resources or mine deep into the world in Survival Mode, crafting weapons and armor to fend off dangerous mobs. Share the experience with four-player split screen or up to eight players online*. Several fan-favorite add-on packs, including the Super Mario Mash-Up pack, are included in the Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition game, available at 6 p.m. PT on May 11 in Nintendo eShop.


Mario Kart 8 Deluxe My Nintendo Rewards – To help celebrate the launch of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe game for the Nintendo Switch console, My Nintendo is offering three new rewards:

  • A cool June calendar featuring Link
