Gato Roboto and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons are among this week’s lineup of new eShop releases for the Nintendo Switch.
One of this week’s Nintendo Switch highlights is Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. It’s a beguiling puzzle adventure that charts the story of two brothers who must journey to the Tree of Life to save their father. Josef Fares (A Way Out) served as creative lead on the game which was originally released in 2013 and comes to Switch with a new two-player co-op mode.
Another returning favourite to get an outing on Nintendo Switch is music puzzler, Chime Sharp. If you’re a fan of Tetris or Lumines, it should strike a chord.
And if you have a Nintendogs-shaped hole in your life, we have some good news. Imagineer’s Little Friends: Dogs & Cats finally gets a Western release, giving players the HD-rumble petting experience they’ve always dreamed of.
Speaking of cats, Doinksoft’s promising kitten mech Metroidvania, Gato Roboto, pounces onto the Nintendo eShop this Thursday. We’ll have a review for you soon.
Other recommended new releases include Crystal Crisis, and Payload Studio’s sci-fi sandbox game, TerraTech.
Here’s the full lineup of new Nintendo eShop games. 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.
