Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin headlines this week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.

After many years spent nurturing a Western audience, Capcom’s Monster Hunter series is now a big deal. The franchise always had its fans, but the expansive and polished Monster Hunter: World opened it to a new audience, and this year’s Monster Hunter Rise gave Switch owners their own full-featured experience.

The first Monster Hunter Stories RPG spin-off came to the Nintendo 3DS five years ago and was pretty much ignored. I make no bones about saying I enjoyed it more than recent entries in the structurally similar Pokémon series. The sequel arrives on Switch this week and is almost guaranteed to be a hit. If it’s anything like the first game, it will be another RPG to savour.


Other new Nintendo Switch releases include Ys IX: Monstrum Nox, The Silver Case 2425, and a cloud version of Asobo Studio’s acclaimed survival stealth game, A Plague Tale: Innocence.

Here is the complete list of upcoming Nintendo Switch games. We’ll update this post throughout the week with any late additions.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
