Nintendo eShop releases

Here’s your round-up of new games coming to the 3DS and Wii U via the Nintendo eShop.

Although all eyes are now on the Nintendo Switch, the Wii U eShop bravely continues on with four new releases this week.

Pick of the bunch is forma.8, a graphically beautiful game in the MetroidVania style. Developers Mixed Bag promise a huge, exploratory adventure through ancient civilisations as you embark on a life or death mission to recover a lost energy source. If you have downloaded the Nindies@Home demo you can also get a discount on the game until March 23, 2017.


On Wii U Virtual Console we have the release of Harvest Moon 64, the farming and family simulation which originally came to the Nintendo 64 in 1999.

And on 3DS this week, there are exactly zero games released. However, if you are a Swapdoodle player you can pick up some of Legend of Zelda themed DLC, so it’s not all bad.

Here’s the full 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.
