Two Point Hospital and two Metro Redux games are the highlights of this week’s new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.

The Nintendo Switch continues to punch above its weight this week with impressive ports of Metro 2033 Redux and Metro Last Light Redux. If you like tough as nails shooters set and post-apocalyptic hellscapes, they should bring a big smile to your face.

Another of this week’s Nintendo Switch highlights is the quirky business simulation, Two Point Hospital. The spiritual successor to Theme Hospital that was a big hit on PC in 2018. Hopefully, this promising looking port plays nicely with console controls.


If you like the Picross series, you should also check out Depixtion, which gives the age-old puzzle format a colourful twist. And fans of top-down action games like Hotline: Miami should investigate Paper Cult’s stylish and bloody Bloodroots.

Finally, Capcom’s Mega Man Zero / ZX Legacy Collection brings together six classic games starring the Blue Bomber that were originally released on Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS.

Here’s the current lineup of new Nintendo Switch releases. We’ll keep the list updated throughout the week.

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.
