Here’s this week’s lineup of Nintendo eShop games coming to the 3DS, Wii U, and Nintendo Switch.

It’s a another solid week on the eShop with eight games released across all three Nintendo consoles.

On Nintendo Switch there’s a welcome reissue for LEGO City Undercover. The game – which was somewhat overlooked on its original Wii U release – returns with two-player co-op and a slight visual upgrade. Unfortunately, early reports suggest the original version’s horrendous loads times are only slightly reduced.


Also coming to Nintendo Switch is Frozenbyte’s Has-Been Heroes, and Graceful Explosion Machine. Vertex Pop’s side-scrolling shooter has a beautiful and vibrant art style, and an energetic synth soundtrack. It looks perfect for some frantic arcade-style thrills.

Elsewhere you can pick up Yo-Kai Watch 2 and retro style RPG Dragon Sinker on 3DS, and rudimentary shooter Y.A.S.G on Wii U.

Here’s the full Nintendo eShop lineup for this week:

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.
