If you were excited by Nintendo’s E3 roster, this week’s eShop line-up has a few games to keep you busy.
Nintendo are releasing some E3 related Virtual Console titles to plug the gap until Fall.
First up, Fox McCloud takes to the sky in Star Fox Command, an interesting strategy and action hybrid from Q Games that was originally released for the Nintendo DS back in 2006.
And if you liked the look of Mario & Luigi Paper Jam check out the fantastic Mario & Luigi: Partners in Crime. For our money it’s the best game in the Mario & Luigi series with bags of witty humour, an fun story and some great RPG combat mechanics.
It’s also worth checking out the beautiful and thoughtful Never Alone.
Here’s the full list of the week’s releases:
Wii U eShop
Art Academy: Home Studio
Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna)
Star Fox Command (Virtual Console)

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.
