Star Fox 64 barrel rolls onto the Nintendo eShop.
There’s a remarkably solid line-up coming to the Nintendo eShop this week, even if it’s one that trades heavily on nostalgia.
The big headline is the arrival of Nintendo 64 classic, Star Fox 64 – once known as Lylat Wars on UK shores. It’s discounted in the run up to the release of the new Wii U title, Star Fox Zero but if money is not a problem we’d probably recommend picking up the 3DS remake, which is available from Amazon for about £15.
The Nintendo 3DS sees some more SNES classics arrive in the shape of two Donkey Kong Country titles, plus there’s the long-awaited port of the Wii U Zelda spin-off, Hyrule Warriors: Legends.
Here’s the full eShop line-up for this week.

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.
