Hitman 3 and Redout: Space Assault headline this week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.

IO Interactive’s trilogy-concluding Hitman 3 is the pick of this week’s new Nintendo Switch releases. Like Remedy Entertainment’s Control, the game comes to Switch using cloud streaming technology from Ubitus. Assuming you have a decent home internet connection, it’s likely to be a perfectly acceptable method of playing the game. And as with Control, you’ll be able to stress-test your experience by playing a small portion of the game for free.

Another highlight is Redout: Space Assault from 34BigThings. We rather enjoyed the studio’s last game and have high hopes for this spaceship dogfighting prequel.


Other new Nintendo Switch releases include Frodoric The DriverThe Unexpected Quest, and Gravity Heroes. We’ll keep this page updated with any late additions throughout the week.

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.
