Check out this week’s lineup of new video game releases on the Nintendo Switch eShop.
There’s a decent number of games coming to the Nintendo Switch this week, but our most anticipated release is one not on the list, yet.
Rumours have been swirling about the release of Cadence of Hyrule — Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda for a few weeks now. Nintendo finally confirmed a June launch window, but the smart money is on the game hitting the eShop right after the E3 2019 Nintendo Direct on Tuesday.
Update – June 11: the game is in fact coming to Switch on June 13. See below for the updated list of releases.
Other new Swtich games include Viking action platformer, Tyr : Chains of Valhalla, and Verlet Swing, a hook shot fever dream of an adventure from Flamebait Games.
Players too impatient to wait for Super Mario Maker 2, might want to check out Platago! Super Platform Game Maker. The title speaks for itself.
And finally, three more classic games are coming to the Nintendo Switch Online NES library.
Here’s the full lineup of new Nintendo eShop releases. We’ll add any additional titles as they are confirmed 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.
