Well gang, it’s another Thursday, which means it’s time for your regular dose of Nintendo Download! This week has some compelling new games on the horizon, as well as some noteworthy activities and digital games. It’s also the roll out of the Switch Online functionality, so you should be prepared for online gaming to change a bit. But first, let’s get started with some new games from the eShop.

Nintendo Download | Valkyria Chronicles 4

If you love strategy RPGs, soon you’ll be able to pick up Valkyria Chronicles 4. I admit I personally haven’t tried the series yet, but I’ve heard many good things. If you’re curious how the latest installment is, check back with us for oprainfall’s upcoming official review of the game. For something a bit more mild mannered, you might be interested in puzzle game The Gardens Between. Help Arina and Frendt through dreamlike puzzles littered with everyday objects from their lives, and find a way out of this mysterious realm. Lastly, if you are like me and love you some chibi art, then you’ll probably want to invest in Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition HD. I don’t know what it is about me and chibi when it comes to Square Enix, but I feel it makes things much better. Now, let’s move onto some events this week.
