Here is this week’s lineup of Nintendo eShop video game releases for the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS, and Wii U.
It’s a good week for quirky sports games on the Nintendo Switch, starting with the release of Sausage Sports Club from Luckshot Games. The game features a generous selection of physics-based pursuits starring an adorable lineup of floppy-necked animals. The game has a 1-4 player replayable Adventure mode, and also supports up to eight players in Free Play.
Also released this week – in North America at least – is Pool Panic, the latest game to be published by Adult Swim. Developed by Rekim, it’s billed as “the world’s least realistic pool simulator” and features over 100 single player levels, plus a wealth of local multiplayer content. The game hits Europe next week.
Other highlights include Mugsters, a new action puzzle game from Team17, and Arcanity’s promising single player RPG, Tanzia.
As usual, this list is subject to change throughout the week, and at the time of publication there are no games listed for the 3DS or Wii U. Here is the current lineup of Nintendo eShop releases.

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.
