Nintendo eShop releases

Armikrog, The Legend of the Mystical Ninja and a demo for Phoenix Wright  – Spirit of Justice come to the Nintendo eShop this week.

There a few gems in amongst the rough of this week’s Nintendo eShop releases. On Wii U the pick of the bunch is the point-and-click adventure, Armikrog, which also comes to PS4 on Tuesday.

But the good stuff is over on Nintendo 3DS. First up is the demo for Phoenix Wright  – Spirit of Justice. It will be interesting to see how well it performs being a eShop-only title. The demo gives a taste of the game’s new Divination Séance gameplay feature.


Over on the New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console there’s a also chance to pick up the SNES classic, The Legend of The Mystical Ninja.

There’s also something called Panda Love arriving on Wii U. It’s probably worth £1.39 just to see, isn’t it?

Here are the rest of the week’s releases.

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.
