Here’s our quick round-up of this week’s new video game releases for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
This week’s new release highlights include the eagerly anticipated ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove. Series creator Greg Johnson is back on directing duties as two icons of the 16-bit era make their funky return.
Other returning franchises include Dirt Rally 2.0 from Codemasters, Trials Rising from RedLynx and Ubisoft, and Team Ninja’s Dead of Alive 6.
Toby Fox’s Deltarune Chapter 1 comes to the Nintendo Switch, as does our pick of the week, the wonderfully violent Ape Out, from Gabe Cuzzillo. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One also get the console edition of space strategy game, Stellaris.
Here’s the full list of new release. We’ll keep it updated with any new additions 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.
