Nintendo eShop Releases

Here is this week’s jam-packed lineup of Nintendo eShop releases for the Nintendo Switch, 3DS, and Wii U.

The avalanche of video games coming to the Nintendo Switch continues with another busy week that features a mix of games old and new.

In terms of new titles, our pick of the week is Runner3 from Choice Provisions. We’ve long been fans of the Runner and Bit.Trip series, and if you enjoyed the recent reissue of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, this tricky but compelling platformer is a worthy chaser.

Speaking of tricky platforming, there’s welcome Switch release for Metanet Software’s N++, the tough-as-nails platformer we’ve been following for some time. We recently spoke to game designer Raigan Burns about his Desert Island Games.

And speaking of even trickier platforming, the two Mega Man Legacy Collections are also making their Switch debut. Between both collections you can experience all ten mainline Mega Man games, plus a lovingly curated digital museum, remixed levels, and amiibo support, too.

Here is this week’s full Nintendo eShop lineup. As always, this list is subject to change, and we’ll add details of any additional games as soon we get them.

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.
