This week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases is headlined by a collection of three classic RPGs.
Collection of SaGa Final Fantasy Legend includes the Game Boy RPGs Final Fantasy Legend, Final Fantasy Legend II, and Final Fantasy Legend III. A series of enhancements allow you to adjust the screen size, change the background, and play in Tate Mode. The only downside – as pointed out by gaming historian Frank Cifaldi – is that the emulation doesn’t look up to the standard these classics deserve. Nonetheless, it’s an appealing compilation of retro gems.
Another highlight is Dicey Dungeons, the roguelike, deck-building game from Terry Cavanagh, developer of VVVVVV and Super Hexagon. The game won plaudits on its PC release for its metagame progression, appealing visuals, and a terrific soundtrack from Chipzel.
Other new Nintendo Switch releases include Team Ladybug’s acclaimed Metroidvina, Touhou Luna Nights, and rhythm-action remake, Deemo Reborn. We’ll update this post throughout the week with any late additions.
Update: Dec 15 – Today’s Nintendo Indie World video confirmed that Among Us – and couple of other titles – are coming to Nintendo Switch today.

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.
