Super Mario is the star of this week’s Nintendo eShop releases for the Switch, and 3DS.
This week’s Nintendo eShop highlights are reissues of two old games starring Super Mario. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe is an update of the underrated Wii U launch title that also includes the New Super Luigi U DLC, and adds Nabbit and Toadette as playable characters.
For hardcore Nintendo fans this week’s most anticipated release is probably Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story + Bowser Jr’s Journey. The Nintendo 3DS game is a remake of AlphaDream’s acclaimed 2009 RPG that comes with a visual makeover, updated boss battles, and a new side-story starring Bowser Jr. The game is out in North America this week, and is released in Europe and Australia at the end of the month.
Also released this week is Double Cross, Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition, Everything, and the Sega Ages edition of Out Run. We also expect new Arcade Archives and NeoGeo releases to be confirmed, so check back for updates throughout the week.

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.
