Nintendo eShop releases

Here’s your round-up of this week’s Nintendo eShop releases for the 3DS and Wii U.

Minecraft: Story Mode might not have been to everyone’s taste but The Complete Adventure brings all eight episodes together and will surely be enough to keep fans entertained with its whimsical story and stellar voice cast.

Elsewhere, the Wii U gets the Wii edition of the brilliant GameCube strategy game, Pikmin 2. The ‘new play controls’ certainly improve the experience and if you are a fan of the Pikmin 3 it comes highly recommended.


Over on 3DS there’s a Virtual Console release for Capcom’s Demon’s Crest and a collection of nine microgames starting some chap called Kutar. No, we’ve not heard of him either.

Here’s the full eShop release line-up:

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.
