Here’s this week’s jam-packed lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.

Two acclaimed simulation games are welcome additions to the Nintendo Switch software library this week, and then it all goes downhill.

Jurassic World Evolution: Complete Edition was a surprisingly big hit for Frontier Developments when it was released in 2018. It’s a nicely balanced combination of business simulation and dinosaur hokum, with Jeff Goldblum, Bryce Dallas Howard and B. D. Wong on call to lend the whole enterprise a pleasingly sense of authenticity. It’s a much better experience than the franchise’s most recent film and, as the name suggests, the Complete Edition includes all post-release DLC.

Like Jurassic World Evolution, Limbic Entertainment’s Tropico 6 also lets players loose on an archipelago of islands. In our review of the PS4 edition, Callum said it was an “intuitive and accessible port with a great control scheme.” Let’s hope the Switch version also meets with El Presidente’s approval.


Our third pick of the week is Descenders, the popular mountain biking game from RageSquid. We liked the Early Access version of the game well enough. In his review, Tom said it was a “mechanically fun-to-play mountain biking game” that was undermined by its roguelike progression system. Mike Rose from publisher No More Robots says the Switch version took quite a bit of work, so we’re interested to see how it turns out. (In all honesty, Lonely Mountains: Downhill probably remains our pick from this sub-genre of biking games.)

Other new Nintendo Switch releases include YesterMorrow, Bakugan: Champions of Vestroia, and the Memoranda.

Here’s the full lineup of new releases. We’ll undoubtedly update this page throughout the week with some 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.
