Here’s your round-up of this week’s Nintendo eShop game releases for the Nintendo Switch, 3DS and Wii U.
It’s another chock-a-block week on the Nintendo eShop with range of releases large and small. There’s plenty to enjoy on the Nintendo Switch, but the week’s headline game is Metroid: Samus Returns on Nintendo 3DS.
MercurySteam has taken one of the weaker games in the franchise, and according to reviews, given it a vibrant and modern update.
Another returning game icon comes to the Switch in the latest port of Rayman Legends. Ubisoft’s 2013 platformer was a Wii U highlight, and if you missed the game first time round it comes highly recommended.
Also coming to Switch is NBA 2K18, meditative puzzle game Semispheres, and the latest in Hamster’s line of NeoGeo classics, Spin Master.

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.
