Nintendo eShop Releases

Get the lowdown on this week’s Nintendo eShop releases for the Switch, 3DS, and Wii U.

This week’s Nintendo Switch lineup features a handful of potential new gems, plus the release of some older indie hits.

Arriving in Europe this week – but already released in North America – is co-op adventure game, The Adventure Pals. Don’t let the rather generic name put you off, it’s a charming and inventive mix of platforming and action, starring a boy and his pal giraffe.


Also worth a look is Passtech’s strategic action game, Masters of Anima. The game has beautiful art direction, and its army-controlling gameplay evokes the Pikmin series. High hopes for this one.

In terms of older games, we have a Switch outing for Klei Entertainment’s influential open world survival game, Don’t Starve. It’s joined by Brain&Brain’s jaunty folktale, Burly Men at Sea.

Here is this week’s full Nintendo eShop release lineup. We’ll add any new games – and full EU pricing – as soon as we get confirmation.

Before we go, a little housekeeping. This week we have combined the European and North American releases into one article. Let us know in the comments below if you prefer this format, or would rather a separate article for each region.

Also, why not bookmark our new releases page to get regular updates on the games coming to Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo consoles. And one last thing, check out our complete list of Nintendo Switch game demos.

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.
