This week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases includes a game based on a classic movie and a fantasy steampunk adventure.
Top Gun Maverick may be delayed to next summer, but aspiring pilots can take to the skies next week (in Europe at least) in Top Gun Air Combat, the new dogfighting game from Pix Arts. The aerial action game gives players the chance to fly numerous fighter jets including the F18, F35, F22, Typhoon, and Mirage. Let’s turn and burn!
More cerebral exploits can be found in Choices That Matter: And Their Souls Were Eaten, a steampunk text adventure game from Tin Man Games. The game includes over 300,000 words and thousands of choices to make as you uncover dark secrets in 1830s Europe.
Other new releases include Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Heart of the Forest, Shadow Gangs, and Stardash. We’ll update this page throughout the week with 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.
