Darksiders III and FIFA 22 are among this week’s new Nintendo Switch eShop releases.
A jam-packed week on the Nintendo Switch is headlined by the arrival of Darksiders III. THQ Nordic’s 2018 action RPG was a surprise revival for a seemingly dormant franchise, and although it’s not quite as polished as the first two games – also available on Switch – it’s fun and furious.
Also arriving this week is FIFA 22. Once again, Nintendo Switch owners have to make do with a Legacy Edition, which updates team rosters, kits, and stadiums but little else. It’s the fourth year running the series has received this treatment, which is a pity considering the console’s success. We reviewed FIFA 21 and liked it well enough, so if you’re a Switch owner new to the series, it might be worth considering.
Other new Nintendo Switch releases include a welcome update for XBLA favourite Toy Soldiers, whodunnit adventure Agatha Christie – Hercule Poirot: The First Cases, and a pair of classic shooters from the Cotton series.
We’ll update this page with any late additions to the Nintendo eShop lineup 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.
