Remasters of two video game classics are our picks from this week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.

Aspyr Media announced the HD remaster of the N64 classic Star Wars Episode I: Racer last month. Since then, the PlayStation 4 version of the game has been pushed back. The Switch edition is still due to arrive this week, but at the time of writing, it isn’t listed on the eShop’s upcoming page. We’re counting our midi-chlorians with anticipation and hope.

Update: May 11, 2020. Aspyr Media has confirmed that the Nintendo Switch release of Episode I: Racer has also been pushed back.

Another game we are looking forward to revisiting is the remaster of OG Xbox launch title, Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee.

Huntdown from Easy Trigger Games also looks good. It’s a side-scrolling action game with top-notch 16-bit graphics, an ice-cool soundtrack, and a clip full of 80s movie tributes. It’s certainly not original, but it looks a like lots of fun.

Meanwhile, sports fans can look forward to TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2 and Super Mega Baseball 3, which promises a host of gameplay and technical improvements. Other new releases include Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix, She Sees Red, and Thy Sword.

The US Nintendo eShop is also listing The Elder Scrolls: Blades with an “Estimated Release Date” of May 14. We’re dubious.

Here’s the full lineup of new Nintendo eShop releases. We’ll keep this list updated throughout the week with any last-minute additions and changes.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. 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 to meet those goals! 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.
