This week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop games includes a dark tale of bloodlust, a superhero POTUS and some jigsaws!
We expect that 90% of Switch owners are playing the wonderful Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but if you despise friendship, good-deeds, and weeding, here are some new games coming to the Nintendo eShop.
White Wolf Publishing’s popular table-top RPG gets a digital revamp in Vampire: The Masquerade – Coteries of New York. The game was released to middling reviews on PC last year, but we expect it will give fans enough to sink their teeth into.
Saints Row: IV – Re-Elected provides some low-effort, high-impact thrills. We quite liked the Switch port of Saints Row the Third, and this is the better game, so we’ll give it a mini-review of three-and-a-half stars.
Elsewhere, train nerds (hello Dad) might want to get on board with choo-choo strategy simulation Railway Empire. Lufty and friends also return to cause more chaos in One Piece Pirate Warriors 4.
And in these days of self-isolation, wouldn’t it be wonderful to have something to pass the time? Perhaps an abundance of jigsaws? Well, we have some good news. The perfectly titled Jigsaw Abundance is also coming to Nintendo Switch this week.
Note: This article has been updated with games announced in March’s Nintendo Direct Mini.

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.
