Here’s your complete guide to this week’s Nintendo eShop releases for the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.
It’s another strong week on the eShop with an impressive range of games coming to all three Nintendo consoles.
Following on from last week’s stunning eShop lineup – which featured the triple whammy of Stardew Valley, Oxenfree, and Axiom Verge – we have another collection of recommended indie releases. Titles worth checking out include the long-awaited EU release of Sine Mora EX, 10tons’ vibrant top-down shooter, Neon Chrome, and the striking survival roguelike, The Flame in the Flood.
The Nintendo 3DS doesn’t have its own version of Stardew Valley, unfortunately, but if you’re looking for something notionally similar, you could do worse than Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns. I played the game for ten minutes at this year’s E3, only to find an enjoyable hour had passed by the time I was finished.
Here is this week’s eShop lineup. We’ll add full EU pricing details as soon as we have them.

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.
