Fire Emblem Fates leads this week’s Nintendo eShop releases.
Much of the digital shelf space on the Nintendo eShop this week is dedicated to the release of Fire Emblem Fates. In addition to the main game you can also purchase the Birthright and Conquest story paths as add-on DLC packs. A free demo is also available – Fire Emblem Fates: Before Awakening – which features a unique map and the characters of Chrom, Lissa and Frederick. On top of that there is a full map-pack and range of 3DS themes on sale too.
Over on Wii U there is a curious – but nostalgically welcome – release for PixelJunk Monsters, Q-Games’ hit from 2008. And Minecraft Wii U Edition gets the DLC we always knew was coming in the shape of the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack – best of all, it’s absolutely free.
Here’s the full release list.

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.
