This week’s Nintendo eShop release line-up is, erm, short.
We guess some weeks there just aren’t any games to release. And this looks like being one of those weeks.
A paltry two releases are coming to the Nintendo eShop this week – both on 3DS – in the shape of Alien on the Run and Stickman Super Athletics. Alien on the Run also gets a free demo so you can at least try before you buy.
If you want something new to play on Wii U, well, you are out of luck.
Elsewhere, there are a few discounts to be found, the best being a 50% reduction across the entire range of Zen Pinball games and DLC packs.
Here’s the full release list.
Nintendo eShop releases for 4th August 2016
- Alien on the run – €4.99/ £4.19 / CHF 5.39
- Stickman Super Athletics – €2.49/ £2.25 / CHF 2.75 until 22/08/2016

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.
