Hmm, I was hoping for more multiplayer stuff before my party this weekend but that seemed unlikely. Unless we count Bomberman 64 but that wasn't really one of my favorites and we'll be playing new Bomberman anyway.
I'm so excited about this weeks update. I've been waiting to see what they release and, not only am I not disappointed, I'm also pleasantly surprised by those Neo-Geo games. I wonder how much they cost. Also, those fighting games are going to be a good test for how the left joy-con arrows work for fighting games. They work perfectly enough for 2D games. That's how I'm playing Shovel Knight.
