Nintendo eShop Releases April 19, 2018 – Thumbsticks

Here’s the full rundown of this week’s new eShop games for the Nintendo Switch, 3DS, and Wii U.

It’s been a relatively quiet week on the Nintendo eShop by recent standards, with a smaller and more digestible lineup of new releases.

Our selection of the week is Manticore: Galaxy on Fire. Yes, it’s another mobile port, but of a game that’s always had the ambition to deliver a deep, console-like experience. There’s a lot of content to be found in this iteration, and having standard console commands should make its combat much more enjoyable.

Also released this week is Savage Weapons Reloadedan enhanced version of Natsume’s classic SNES shooter that adds new levels and characters.

Elsewhere, there’s a remastered version of Puzzling Dream’s graphic adventure, The pathand strategy game fans may want to check out Neo Atlas 1469a remake of the 1999 business simulation/visual novel, Neo Atlas II.

Nintendo Switch owners in the US can also expect to buy the first one Nintendo Lab retail outlets. They arrive in Europe next week.

Here’s this week’s full Nintendo Switch lineup, we’ll add details on any additional releases as we get them.

More Thumbsticks

We hate to ask

Thumbsticks has two main purposes. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won’t, and we want to provide opportunities for new writers and new voices. But it’s hard to make ends meet in the online edition right now, so if you’d like to help us continue our work, you can always offer the team a cup of coffee.
