Here’s the full rundown of games released this week on the Nintendo eShop for Switch, 3DS, and Wii U.
There are 13 games coming to the Nintendo eShop today, with a focus on budget indie titles.
First up, there’s another Neo Geo classic coming to the Nintendo Switch. The King of Fighters ’94 was first game in the series, and was originally released on the Neo Geo-based arcade system. It’s action-packed retro fun, but we can’t shake the feeling that the Switch eShop needs to be offering a little more at this stage. There is a little crumb of comfort, however, in the upcoming Splatoon 2 Global Testfire. The client is now available to download in preparation for next weekend’s event.
Over on 3DS there’s a range of smaller games to choose from. Our pick is 6180 The Moon, a game which debuted on Steam back in 2014 and also came to the Wii U in 2016. It’s a simple but fun puzzle platformer that’s perfect for on-the-go gaming and should work well with the two screen format of the 3DS.
Here’s the full Nintendo 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. 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.
