There’s a sci-fi shooting, downhill biking, genre-mashing lineup of new video games coming to the Nintendo Switch eShop this week.
This week’s crop of new Nintendo Switch releases is led by Blue Manchu’s impressive sci-fi roguelike FPS, Void Bastards. The game was first released on PC and Xbox this time last year and received plaudits for its stunning art style, freeform mission design, and expansive weapons arsenal.
If you’d rather play something a little more grounded, Lonely Mountains: Downhill will bring you down to earth with a satisfying bump. A simple idea – get from the top of a mountain to the bottom – is exquisitely delivered with physics-based handling, excellent course design, and stylish low-poly visuals.
Other new Nintendo Switch releases include SuperMash, the self-proclaimed game that makes games, and Jay and Silent Bob: Mall Brawl, which we predict is as good as it sounds.
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.
