Nintendo's brand-new console, the Nintendo Switch, has been a huge hit since its launch earlier this month. In just a matter of days, the home-handheld console hybrid quickly became the fastest-selling console in Nintendo history and is currently sitting with more than 1.5 million units sold. However, there's one area that's often criticized by many: its tiny game library. This has caused some to hold off on buying the console until more games are available.
The good news is, five new games have been added to the Nintendo eShop to bolster the Switch's unimpressive game library. The bad news is, none of which are really "new" and are merely ports of already existing games. The most high-profile of the quintet is The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+, which was originally scheduled to launch alongside the Switch. It includes the base game and its two expansions, Afterbirth and Afterbirth+, and is available for $39.99.
Joining the hit roguelike game is a trio of indie puzzle games: Human Resource Machine and Little Inferno by Tomorrow Corporation, and World of Goo by 2D Boy. All of which are available for $9.99. As shown in this short video by @NintenDaan on Twitter (via Reddit), World of Goo allows players to use the Switch's Joy-Con controller like a pointer, similar to the Wii Remote.
Rounding up the five-game lineup is the Neo Geo fighting game The King of Fighters '94 by SNK, available for $7.99. (Another Neo Geo game, Metal Slug 3, was also released on Switch last week.) Except for The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+, none of these games are particularly must-plays and only serve as fillers for those who have already finished The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the Switch's most noteworthy game.

More games are set to arrive on Switch in the coming months, including the anticipated games Super Mario Odyssey and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Both are expected to arrive much later this year. There's also the rumored Pokemon Stars, the third version of the Nintendo 3DS games Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon, though Nintendo hasn't confirmed it yet.
