New Nintendo Switch eShop releases

Here’s our New Year roundup of Nintendo eShop video game releases for the Nintendo Switch, 3DS, and Wii U.

It’s comparatively quiet on the Nintendo eShop as we enter the New Year, with a small selection of new games coming to the Nintendo Switch.

This week’s highlight is Don’t Sink, a naval sandbox adventure RPG from Studio Eris. The game has bucket-loads of charm, and has been well-received on PC.

The US eShop is also playing catchup with the release of a number of games that are already available in Europe.

This list is likely to change – we expect new Arcade Archives and NeoGeo releases – so check back for updates throughout the week. Here’s the full lineup of new Nintendo eShop releases.

We hate 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. But it's difficult to make ends meet in online publishing at the moment, so if you'd like to help us continue our work, you could always buy the team a cup of coffee.
