Everybody’s excited about 9-player local action with Runbow, but the hilariously-titled Gunman Clive also looks to be a treat.
The Nintendo eShop releases for 3 September 2015 are predominantly filled with noise about Runbow. Mostly because it’s absolutely insane. In case you missed it, Runbow is a 9-player local multiplayer (is there a better way to phrase that? Answers on a postcard please) platformer, and as its name suggests is as nauseatingly colourful as it is ludicrously busy. Looks a lot of fun, though!
Other highlights include the beautifully animared (but very brown) and hilariously titled Gunman Clive HD Collection. It sounds like the story of a bloke robbing a betting shop in London in the 1980s, but it’s actually a western-themed Metroidvania affair, and is really rather quaint. There’s also the re-release of N64 shooter Sin and Punishment on Wii U, and Little Battlers eXperience for the 3DS.
Oh, and just in case there is a single soul out there who hasn’t yet played it, Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna) is on sale this month. Lovely stuff.

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.
