Falcon Age and The Survivalists top this week’s list of new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.

Another year, another stripped back edition of FIFA for Nintendo Switch owners. We reviewed FIFA 20 last year, and although we liked it, it was little more than a roster and kit update of FIFA 19. And so it continues with FIFA 21 Legacy Edition. You can be sure of a decent game of football, but you won’t find Volta Football or any of the career mode and gameplay improvements coming to other consoles.

Of the week’s other Nintendo Switch new releases, we’re most eager to see how Falcon Age performs. Outerloop’s game – which was critical hit on PS4 and PS VR – marries a thoughtful story with action, crafting, and video game falconry.

We’re also excited for Team17’s new Escapists spin-off, The Survivalists. As you might expect, the studio is adding humour, personality, accessibility and fun to the survival sandbox genre. Other new Nintendo eShop releases include Game Dev Tycoon, The Watchmaker, and Adventures of Chris.

Here’s the full lineup of confirmed new Nintendo Switch games. We’ll updated this article throughout the week with 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.
