Haven and Kowloon High-School Chronicle are among this week’s crop of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.
This week’s Nintendo Switch highlight is Haven, a striking sci-fi survival RPG game from The Game Bakers. It’s a delight for the eyes, and the game’s story and rhythm-influenced combat won it fans on PC, PS5, and Xbox late last year. We just hope the Switch port is up to the standard the game deserves.
As fans of the classic H.G. Wells novel, we are also curious about Grey Skies: A War of the Worlds Story from Steel Arts software. The game has received mixed reviews from players on Steam, but it might be one of those rough-hewn adventures that benefit from being reduced down to the Switch’s small screen.
Other new Nintendo Switch releases include Habroxia 2, Kowloon High-School Chronicle, and sci-fi MMORPG, Skyforge.
Here’s the current lineup of new games. We’ll update this page throughout next week with any late arrivals.

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.
