Here’s the full roundup of this week’s eShop video game releases for the Nintendo Switch, and 3DS.
Another busy week of eShop releases is headlined by Nintendo’s multiplayer party game, Super Mario Party. The series has been in the doldrums for sometime, but the new game – which is again co-developed by Nd Cube – seems reinvigorated by the Switch hardware. Toad’s Rec Room, in particular, looks sure to provide plenty of local multiplayer shenanigans.
Also coming to Switch this week is the return of the Blue Bomber in the highly anticipated Mega Man 11 from Capcom.
Other releases include Revenant Dogma, The Midnight Sanctuary, and Soulblight. It also looks like there’s an exciting new game on the way for all Switch-owning jigsaw fans.
Here’s the full lineup of new releases. This list is subject to change, and we’ll keep it updated through the week with any new additions.

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.
