Minecraft, Loelei and Braid join this week’s eShop roundup

What’s happening on the Nintendo Switch eShop this week? Minecraft is celebrating its 15th birthday with 50% off three titles until June 4. Plus, Braid gets an update and Lorelei takes us on a puzzle-adventure through Europe.

Happy birthday, Minecraft! It’s hard to believe this blocky series has been around for 15 years. It’s easy, though, to see the influence Minecraft has had on gaming culture. Many people grew up with this crafty world, and this month marks the perfect time to celebrate all things Minecraft. With that in mind, there are some decent discounts on existing titles for the Switch, so if you’ve been waiting for the perfect time to grab yourself a bargain, this is it!

Meanwhile, Lorelei is a non-linear puzzle affair that presents a third-person adventure about illusions. It sounds like a mysterious, somewhat creepy outing, with an enigma just waiting to be solved.

Remember Braid? If not, that might be because this 2008 title didn’t appear on a Nintendo console. Thankfully, this anniversary edition sets things straight by heading to the Switch. This revamped platformer sounds has been given quite the refresh, with completely new graphics and hours of commentary from the developers.

Did you know it’s been a whole year since Tears of the Kingdom was released? It might be hard to believe so much time has passed, but Nintendo is celebrating by providing a special digital wallpaper and keychain reward. Check it out online via the details below. Oh, and be sure to tune into the Pure Nintendo Podcast on Monday when we revisit Tears of the Kingdom, too.

With that, let’s find out what else has appeared on the Switch eShop. Which games are you playing this weekend?
