Star Wars: Republic Commando and The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV headline this week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.

It’s an older game that catches our eye from this week’s Nintendo eShop release lineup. Star Wars: Republic Commando is a tactical first-person shooter that debuted on Xbox and PC back in 2005. It remains one of the best Star Wars games ever made, and we’re excited to take our squad of clone troopers into battle once again. The port comes via Aspyr, who impressed us last year with a polished Switch version of Star Wars Episode 1: Racer.

Nihon Falcom’s The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV is another welcome addition to the Switch’s growing RPG library. It’s a sprawling, 100-hour plus JRPG with an expansive cast of characters and a deep combat system. The game closes the Cold Steel saga with considerable style, but it’s probably not the best entry point for series newcomers.

Other new Nintendo Switch releases include Cozy GroveWhat the Dub?!, Luckslinger, and Skyland: Heart of the Mountain. We’ll add to this list throughout the week with any late 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.
