Here’s the full lineup of this week’s Nintendo eShop games for the Nintendo Switch, Wii U, and 3DS.
It’s hard to keep track of Nintendo’s eShop releases at the moment. Since the arrival of the Nintendo Switch, the previously reliable Thursday release date has become something of a moveable feast. It appears that indie games on Switch are hitting day and date with their release on other platforms, but 3DS and Wii U titles are still sticking to Thursdays.
This week’s eShop highlight is Tumbleseed, from Benedict Fritz and Greg Wohlwend. The game was one of the stars of Nintendo Nindie presentation back in February, and according to The Guardian, the Switch edition is the definitive version by virtue of being a perfect portable game, not to mention its clever use of HD rumble. Tumbleseed is available now.
Over on Wii U releases include puzzle game Fifteen, arcade block breaker Triple Breakout, and the Castlevania-esque RPG adventure, Citidale – The Legends Trilogy. If you already own Citidale on Wii U you can get a 45% discount on the new release.
Here’s the full Nintendo eShop rundown:

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.
