Thankfully we aren’t being delayed by technical difficulties this week, so you’re getting your Nintendo Download bright and early! This week is short and sweet, mostly focused on upcoming games and sales, with no activities to speak of. But that’s okay, since what we really come here for is to check out great upcoming titles. So let’s see what’s worth playing today!
If you have been eagerly anticipating the latest casually focused Pokémon game, tomorrow you’re in luck! Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go: Eevee! are both out that day, and look to have a lot of reasons to return to Kanto. One nice feature is you can play these along with a friend using a spare Joy-Con, or port over your existing critters from the Pokémon GO app. However, if you’re more interested in something frantic, you might enjoy Warframe. It’s a fast and frenetic MMORPG and it’s totally free. If that sounds appealing, you can check Warframe out starting November 20th. Finally, if you’re a fan of the classic Civilization series, you can check out Civilization VI starting tomorrow. With those out of the way, let’s check out some sales next.
There are a lot of sales worth looking into this week, so buckle up.
