Nintendo Switch eShop Updated to Enhance Game Discovery

Same store, new features.

The Nintendo Switch eShop has received a bit of a facelift today which comes in the form of some handy new features and a few quality of life improvements. These changes aim to make game discovery a much simpler process on the digital store.

The eShop now has a ‘featured’ section that displays 30 of the most popular new and upcoming releases. The ‘Deals’ section has been changed to ‘Great deals,’ and the Best Sellers section now has an option to switch between ‘All Games’ and ‘Download-Only Games.’

The changes have arrived only a mere day after the release of the latest Switch firmware update, Ver. 5.1.0, which Nintendo just began rolling out yesterday. This update comes as no real surprise, as Nintendo had initially revealed back in March that it’s looking to make discovering new games on the eShop a much easier process for customers.

Nintendo is also prioritizing highlighting the eShop in other aspects of its business, namely through its social media platforms and the website.
