Here’s the full rundown of this week’s brand new eShop releases for the Nintendo Switch.
Unless something unexpected happens, there’s a slow week ahead on the Nintendo eShop. The fun begins on Monday with picture puzzle game Travel Mosaics: A Paris Tour and ends on Friday with mobile racing port, JDM Racing. (That stands for Japanese Domestic Market, fact fans,)
There are a couple of interesting releases in between, however. First up is Kuukiyomi: Consider It! from G-Mode. The game features over 100 problems to solve, each presented with wonderfully daft visuals that evoke the Chorus Kids from Rhythm Heaven. To progress, players are evaluated on how “considerate” they are. As the game’s strap-line succinctly puts it, “The world, This is Japan.”
60 Parsecs! from Robot Gentlemen is also worth consideration. The game is a comic adventure of scavenging and survival set in the far reaches of space. The game serves up jokes and tricky choices in equal measure and is designed for replayability.
Here’s the current lineup of confirmed new Nintendo Switch releases. Check back throughout the week for news of any late additions.

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.
