It’s slim pickings from Nintendo this week, unless you like collecting themes.
Whilst the Xbox and PlayStation stores are offering up some compelling sales for the summer, it’s looking a little fallow over at the Nintendo ranch.
This week’s eShop roster is pretty slim all round. Yes, it does include the simply wonderful Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, which arrives on the Wii U Virtual Console, but let’s be honest, the 3DS remaster really is the way to go if you want to experience this all-time classic.
I don’t think Plenty of Fishies is a game based on the website with a similar name, but you never know. You take your chances.
Here’s the full list of the week’s releases:
Wii U eShop
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Virtual Console)
Quadcopter Pilot Challenge
Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3
Mercenaries Saga 2

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.
