Dragon Quest Builders 2 and SolSeraph top the list of new games coming to the Nintendo Switch eShop this week.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is the week’s big new Nintendo Switch release. Omega Force’s game once again blends RPG mechanics with Minecraft style crafting and building, and according to reviews of its Japanese release, it improves on the excellent first game in every respect.
Another game with sandbox mechanics is Ace Team’s SolSeraph. The game takes inspiration from 1990 SNES classic, ActRaiser, and features a mix of side-scrolling action and city building simulation.
Other games coming to the Nintendo Switch include a welcome port of 17-Bit’s turn-based tactics game, Skulls of the Shogun, Bandai Namco’s God Eater 3, and ‘lights off’ puzzler, Wayout.
Nintendo is also publishing a new mobile game this week. Dr. Mario World is heading to both iOS and Android on Wednesday.
Here’s the full lineup of currently confirmed new Nintendo eShop releases. Stay tuned for news of any additional games 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.
