Another week goes by, another raft of Nintendo eShop releases that we’ve never heard of. Except, this one looks interesting…
What’s this? The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time, LEGO Jurassic World and Kirby? This week’s eShop releases – that’ll be the 2nd July 2015 – looks like a Nintendo eShop lineup we can really sink our teeth into.
To paraphrase a line from a Quintin Tarantino movie, and also, a rather popular internet meme featuring always-the-bridesmaid-never-the-Oscar-winner Leonardo DiCaprio: “OK Nintendo, you had my curiosity, but now you have my attention.”

Right. So there’s some good stuff on there – some really, really good stuff – and also the usual assortment of weird tie-ins, odd ports, and general strangeness. This is what we come to expect from the Nintendo eShop mixed bag.
Doesn’t matter though. Ocarina of Time for the Wii U!
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.
