Nintendo eShop Releases

Here is this week’s lineup of eShop releases for the Nintendo Switch, 3DS and Wii U.

It’s a quiet week on the Nintendo eShop, with just a small collection of new games to choose from. Things pick up considerably next week, with The Escapists 2 and Furi among the scheduled releases.

This week Hamster Corp continue to work through the NeoGeo back catalogue, with the classic King of Monsters coming to the Nintendo Switch on Thursday.


We may also see a release for the Arcade Archives version of Double Dragon. The game was due to arrive last week, but was delayed at the last moment.

Also coming to the Switch is nonogram puzzle game Pic-a-Pix Deluxe. A free demo is also available, and although it’s not as nicely presented as Jupiter’s Picross range, it’s priced reasonably and packed with content. It also has a touchscreen mode, something that was lacking from the recent Picross S.

Here’s the full Nintendo eShop release list. We’ll add any last-minute additions, plus full EU pricing, as soon as we receive confirmation.

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.
