Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but this episode of New Releases has a bunch of exciting games for Nintendo Switch owners. The portable console is getting ports of Overwatch and The Witcher 3, plus some new experiences. The workout-focused Ring Fit Adventure and the cutesy RPG Little Town Hero both launch this week too. Meanwhile, PS4, Xbox One, and PC gamers can get their hands on Plants vs. Zombies: Battle For Neighborville.

This version of The Witcher 3 includes Geralt’s 2015 adventure plus all previously released DLC and two full expansions: Hearts of Stone and Blood & Wine. Altogether, that’s potentially hundreds of hours of RPG questing and monster-slaying to dig into. Not bad for a port that came together in just 12 months.

Little Town Hero comes from Game Freak, best known for the Pokemon series. This RPG is set in a single town that the citizens never leave…until monsters start showing up. Little Town Hero’s combat doesn’t rely on grinding–it’s all about strategizing at whatever power level you’ve currently reached. Also the soundtrack is composed by Undertale creator Toby Fox, so that’s pretty rad.
