Mario Golf: Super Rush and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 are the highlights from this week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.
We’re always excited to play Mario’s sporting spin-offs. Mario Tennis Aces was an enjoyable time, and the 3DS version of Mario Golf is another favourite. That bodes well for Mario Golf: Super Rush, which gives the series its first HD outing, an expanded cast of characters, and a promising new Speed Mode.
If golf is a little too leisurely, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 should provide the thrills you seek. We loved the Xbox and PlayStation release last year, so much so we tracked down the bands behind the game’s iconic soundtrack. Hopefully, the Nintendo Switch port is up to the standard the game deserves.
Other new Nintendo Switch releases include Legend of Mana Remastered, which gives the classic RPG a modern makeover, and Lego Builder’s Journey, the thoughtful puzzle adventure from Light Brick Studio.
Here is the full lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases. We’ll add to this list throughout the week with any late additions.

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.
