Monster Hunter Rise and Balan Wonderland headline this week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.

The long-awaited release of Monster Hunter Rise is our pick of this week’s Nintendo Switch lineup. The game’s recent demo was impressive, indicting that Capcom is continuing to balance accessibility for newcomers and complexity for long-term fans.

We also get to sample the first fruits from Sonic creator Yuji Naka’s partnership with Square Enix. Unlike Monster Hunter Rise, the recent demo of Balan Wonderland was not so well received. The game appears pleasingly bizarre, but we’re not sure that will be enough to make it a success.

Our last pick is El Hijo – A Wild West Tale, a charming spaghetti-western stealth game from HandyGames.

Other new Nintendo Switch releases include Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town, Kaze and the Wild Masks, and Overcooked! All You Can Eat. We’ll update this page throughout the week with any late arrivals.

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.
