Here’s your weekly roundup of Nintendo eShop game releases for the Nintendo Switch, Wii U and 3DS.
This week’s eShop highlight is bullet-hell shooter, Sine Mora EX. The new “extended” version of the game – which is developed by Digital Reality and Grasshopper Manufacture – adds new challenge stages, two-player local co-op, and three new competitive modes: Race, Tanks, and Dodgeball.
Update 08/08/17: It now appears that the Nintendo Switch release of Sine Mora EX has been pushed back. Publisher THQ Nordic has announced on Twitter that the game is still due for release later this summer. Sob.
This week also sees the surprise release of Drinkbox Studios’ colourful hack and slash adventure, Severed. The game hits the eShop on Tuesday 8th, and comes highly recommended.
After a short delay, Bitten Toast’s robot arena game Rocket Fist also comes to Switch, and The King of Fighters 2000 is the latest NeoGeo classic from Hamster Corporation.
And don’t forget, the Monster Hunter XX demo is also released on the Japanese Nintendo eShop this Thursday. If you want to give it a whirl, all you need to do is set up a new Switch account – with its region set to Japan – and you’ll be able to download the demo and go hunting.
Here is the full list of this week’s Nintendo eShop games.

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.
