Here’s the full rundown of this week’s Nintendo eShop games for the Nintendo Switch, Wii U, and 3DS.

It’s a good week for Nintendo’s new console, with two big titles released. First up is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The port of the 2014 Wii U hit adds a much-improved battle mode, new characters, and all of the original game’s add-on content. Throw in an improved screen resolution, plus a multitude of local and online multiplayer options, and you have a package that’s hard to resist, despite its heritage.

Also coming to Switch is Puyo Puyo Tetris. This smash-up of two classics sounds like it should be a disaster, but somehow Sonic Team have pulled it off, and the result is an addictive – if somewhat chaotic – puzzle experience. There’s a free demo available on the eShop, so maybe try before you buy.


There’s not much to report on the 3DS and Wii U, the pick of the bunch being word-based party game, Use Your Words.

Here’s the 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.
