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.
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.
- My Nintendo Splatoon 2 Relationship Chart – The Squid Research Lab has compiled a pretty-easy-to-understand (sort of?) printable Splatoon 2 Relationship Chart. Redeem your My Nintendo points* and download this high-resolution PDF file to reacquaint yourself with friendly faces and find out how they are all connected.
- My Nintendo May Rewards: My Nintendo is supporting Nintendo fans with a BOXBOY! + BOXGIRL! wallpaper and discount coupons for up to 30% off fun games.
