Nintendo eShop Releases

Detective Pikachu leads this week’s roster of Nintendo eShop releases for the Nintendo Switch, 3DS, and Wii U.

Proving that there’s life in the old dog yet, a 3DS game is this week’s Nintendo eShop highlight. Detective Pikachu comes to the West two years after its Japanese debut, and promises a Pokémon adventure quite unlike any we’ve played before.

The rather fantastic – and also rather large – Detective Pikachu amiibo is also released day-and-date .

Over on the Nintendo Switch, this week’s releases include a port of the popular mobile and PC space combat game, Manticore: Galaxy on Fire, and anime hack ’n’ slash sequel, Attack on Titan 2.

Also worth a look is Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, from the ever-reliable WayForward Technologies. And if you like, erm, synchronised swimming, Lozange Lab’s delightful puzzle game, Swim Out, should make a splash in your video game library.

Here is the full Nintendo eShop release lineup.

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.
