Well folks, it’s Thursday, which means it’s time for another Nintendo Download. This week is another very short one, so there’s not much to speak of. There’s just the basic stuff to check out, including sales and some events. So let’s get started with Nintendo’s featured game.

Saint's Row: The Third - The Full Package

I am always surprised by what games make the transition to Nintendo Switch lately, and today’s featured title is no exception. It’s none other than SAINTS ROW: THE THIRD – THE FULL PACKAGE. Enter Steelport, a city drowning in sin and vice, and decide how you want to play. This version of the game is also supposed to have some features specific to the Nintendo Switch, so if you want some crazy mayhem, this might be the way to go. Next up, let’s check out a couple events.
