The ones that have my personal attention are Superbeat: XONiC, which I've been playing for a review, and Adult Swim Games's debut on the Switch, Battle Chef Brigade which we loved this week.

The "indies on card" crowd is also well represented with Ittle Dew 2+ and RIME. But the biggest sellers of the week are in the multiplayer realm.
