Lose your mind. Eat your crew. Solve puzzles. Here’s our round-up of this week’s new digital eShop releases for the Nintendo Switch.
It’s another good week for fans of role-playing games on Nintendo Switch. First up is Trials of Mana from Square Enix. This remastered version of the Super Famicon classic comes with all-new 3D graphics, an optional orchestral score, and an overhauled combat system. The result might not appeal to purists, but it looks reasonably promising.
Alternatively, you can embark on an adventure than invites you to “Lose your mind. Eat your crew. Die.” Sunless Sea from Failbetter Games is a gothic horror RPG in which you captain a Victorian steamship and explore a mysterious underground sea. A dense, tense story of delicious darkness awaits.
Of course, the secret best game of the week is Picross S4 from Jupiter Corporation. 485 new puzzles await, including some new 30×30 grids to solve. It sounds blissful. A free eShop demo is available now.
Among the other new Nintendo Switch releases are motorcycle racing sim MotoGP 20, Naruto Shippuuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 – Road to Boruto, and inventive light reflecting puzzle game, Archaica: The Path of Light.

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.
