Nintendo eShop releases

This week’s Nintendo eShop line-up focusses on retro classics from the SNES and TurboGrafx-16.

The New Nintendo 3DS is the recipient of not one but three Street Fighter titles this week, with Alpha 2, II Turbo Hyper Fighting and The New Challengers all arriving on SNES Virtual Console.

Each is priced at £7.19 but if you buy two you get the third free. Not a bad bundle at all for a range of games that should look rather lovely in Pixel Perfect mode on the New 3DS screen.


The Wii U also gets two new Virtual Consoles releases in the shape of the TurboGrafx-16’s New Adventure Island and R-Type.

Here’s the full release list.

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.
