Nintendo eShop releases

Here’s your round-up of games released this week on the 3DS, Wii U – and Switch – via the Nintendo eShop.

Move aside Wii U, there’s a new console in town. This week sees the debut of the Nintendo Switch eShop, which will be available via a day one system update on March 3.

We expect future releases for the Switch eShop to be on Thursdays, as is usual, but this week you can look forward to playing the new Zelda and Snipperclips at home, or on the go, from Friday.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the week’s biggest release, acting as a spectacular sign-off for the Wii U and a statement of intent for the Nintendo Switch. Early reviews are highly positive – including an Edge 10 – so it looks like an essential buy, regardless of the platform you choose.

Here’s the full eShop line-up:

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.
