Nintendo eShop releases

Final Fantasy games old and new come to the Nintendo eShop on 28th January 2016.

There are two Final Fantasy games coming to the Nintendo eShop this week, and both deserve a little attention.

For nostalgic old timers – or younglings – there’s the chance to get play the classic GameBoy Advance strategy game, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. And for those with a penchant for something a little more fully featured, this week also sees the release of Final Fantasy Explorers, a new 3DS RPG complete with full online and local co-operative multiplayer.


And let’s wrap things up with a mention for a new indie title that goes by the name of Runny Egg. How has that name not been used before? Top marks to Tom Create.

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.
