Nintendo eShop releases

Here’s your round-up of the week’s Nintendo eShop releases. Or rather, here comes Pokemon Sun and Moon.

The biggest Nintendo game of the fall – and a contender for biggest game of the year, with 10 million copies printed – arrives this week with the long-awaited release of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. It’s pleasing to see almost universal praise for the latest game in the long-running franchise, particularly as this year’s edition brings a host of changes to the standard Pokémon formula.

There’s also a retail release for the updated Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Included on the game cart is the recent Welcome Amiibo update which introduces new mini-games, amiibo support and a number of other tweaks and improvements. It’s well worth another stay.


And if you enjoyed the recent Rhythm Heaven: Mega Mix on 3DS you might be interested in checking out its Wii predecessor, Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise. It’s not as good but remains a hugely imaginative and entertaining experience.

Here’s the rest of this week’s Nintendo 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.
