EU Nintendo eShop releases for 16th June 2016

This week’s Nintendo eShop line-up is suspiciously tiny.



Nintendo eShop releases

This week’s Nintendo eShop line-up is suspiciously small.

With just three games announced for release, you could be forgiven for thinking that Nintendo is  holding something back for E3. Maybe we’ll get a sneaky last-minute release announced at tomorrow’s Treehouse Live event.

Mother 3? Surely not.


Time will tell. And if not, the rogue-like Gunslugs looks worth a look.

Here’s the full release list.

Nintendo eShop releases for 16th June 2016

Wii U

  • Twin Robots – €4.99/ £4.49 / CHF 7.00

Nintendo 3DS

  • Gunslugs – €1.99/ £1.79 / CHF 2.80
  • Mike the Knight and The Great Gallop – €24.99/ £19.99 / CHF 29.99

Don’t forget that Nintendo are also holding an eShop fifth anniversary sale until 23 June which includes a host of Nintendo classics.

Want to get in on the eShop action? Pick up a Nintendo 3DS from Amazon now.

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.
