Children of Morta and The Touryst headline this week’s crop of new video game releases on the Nintendo Switch eShop.
A host of interesting games are still to come via the Nintendo eShop, including the acclaimed narrative-driven RPG, Children of Morta. Dead Mage’s game features engaging rogue-like mechanics, beautiful aesthetics, and an emotionally resonant storyline.
Our other recommendation is The Touryst from Fast RMX developer, Shin’en Multimedia. It’s an action-adventure game with cute voxel graphics and gameplay that evokes everything from Fez and The Witness to Animal Crossing and The Legend of Zelda.
Other new games include Marblelous Animals and Black Future ’88. European Switch owners can also look forward to Taito’s arcade sequel, Bubble Bobble 4 Friends.
Finally, the Switch doesn’t want for mascot racing games, but if you do want more, check out Garfield Kart Furious Racing. Actually, don’t.
Here’s the current lineup of confirmed new Nintendo Switch releases. Check back throughout the week for any late additions.

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.
