Narita Boy headlines this week’s lineup of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.

Action platformers with 1980s aesthetics are all too common these days, but Studio Koba’s Narita Boy stands out with genuinely distinctive visuals and an intriguing meta-textual premise. The action looks spectacular, and from what we’ve heard so far, the soundtrack is also a banger.

Escape from Life Inc, the offbeat story-driven puzzle platformer from PowerBurger, also looks interesting. And there’s something oddly appealing about Appliks App’ business simulation game, Train Station Simulator.


Other new releases include Acalesia, Storm Tale, and A Long Way Down.

Here’s the full lineup of new Nintendo Switch games. 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.
