Here’s the full roundup of this week’s Nintendo eShop video game releases for the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS.
Another packed lineup sees over 20 games come to the Nintendo Switch eShop this week. As we’ve come to expect there’s a mix of old classics and new indie titles to sift through.
Pick of the bunch is Supergiant’s Bastion, which is as enchanting now as it was on its original release in 2011.
Also arriving on Switch this week is Dust: An Elysian Tail, and Wasteland 2. And if you’re a fan of logic-based puzzle room games – think The Turning Test, Chromagun, or QUBE – you should also check out The Spectrum Retreat.
This week also sees the release of the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 expansion, Torna – The Golden Country. The add-on is set before the events of the main game, and is playable standalone. It will also be available as a physical release from September 21, 2018.
As usual, this list is subject to change – we’ve not had confirmation of this week’s ACA Neo Geo releases – so check back for updates.
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.
