Nintendo eShop releases

Here’s your weekly round-up of new games coming to the 3DS and Wii U via the Nintendo eShop.

There are only three games coming to the Nintendo eShop this week, but one of them could be an unexpected pleasure.

You can’t get World of Tanks on a Nintendo console, but now you might be able to play the next best thing as Tank Troopers arrives on 3DS.


Tank Troopers – which is published by Nintendo and was released in Japan last year – features a colourful cast of characters and offers a typically Nintendo take on tank warfare, with a range of souped-up abilities and special power-up weapons including paint balls, electric shocks and freeze attacks.

The game multiplayer supports up to six players, and there’s also a Download Play mode which only requires one copy of the game.

Also released on 3DS this week is action RPG, Dragon Ball Fusion..

Here’s the full eShop 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. But it's hard to do that in the current financial climate. If you'd like to help us fund these aims, you could always buy the team a cup of coffee.
