Daemon x Machina and Star Wars Pinball headline this week’s list of video games released for the Nintendo Switch.
The Nintendo Switch has been on a strong run lately, with Super Mario Maker 2, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and Astral Chain all keeping the console ticking over during the usually quiet summer months. The avalanche of old games and ports also continues, with Super NES games now available for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers, and a slew of other reissues on the way.
And the new games also keep coming. This week sees the release of another big Switch exclusive, Daemon x Machina. The game’s original demo – released last February – wasn’t particularly impressive. However, developer Marvelous First Studio was looking for player feedback, and the results are evident in the much-improved Prologue released last week. We’re still not 100% sold on the game, but it’s certainly one to watch.
The Switch also gets its first Star Wars game this week in the shape of Zen Studios’ Star Wars Pinball. The package brings together every Star Wars table the studio has created, ranging from A New Hope to Solo.
Other new releases include The Sinking City, Super Dodgeball Beats, and Blasphemous, a promising action platformer from The Game Kitchen. Overcooked! 2 and Trials Rising also get new DLC packs.
Here’s the full lineup of new releases.

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.
