Well folks, I hope you’re ready for today’s Nintendo Download. Cause this is gonna be a big one! Besides the featured games and regular sales, there’s new mobile content, DLC, additional sales and a whole fleet of new digital goodies to check out. So buckle up and get ready to spend some money!
First up in today’s Nintendo Download, let’s cover the two featured titles. One is the sequel to Dragon Quest Builders. DQB2 officially comes out tomorrow, offering tons of crafting and exploration for fans. If that wasn’t enough, there’s also some DLC slated to release for Dragon Quest Builders 2, but I’ll cover that a bit later. Also new this week is the release of God Eater 3! I admit this series has always intrigued me, since it looks like Monster Hunter but with an actual plot. If you love slagging giant monsters, you should definitely give it a look. Next, let’s cover some new mobile offerings from the Big N.
- Dr. Mario World – Nintendo’s newest mobile game, Dr. Mario World***, is now available for smartphone devices. In this free-to-start puzzle and virus-matching puzzle game, meddlesome viruses have the in-game world in a panic, and Dr. Mario and friends must eliminate them by matching capsules with viruses of the same color. Dr. Mario World can also be played together with friends and family around the world. In Versus Mode, players can turn up the intensity by challenging their friends or any other players online to a one-on-one showdown in real time.
- Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp – Starting with Hello Kitty® and Cinnamoroll on July 11, in-game items featuring popular Sanrio® characters are coming to the Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp*** mobile game for a limited time. The Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Sanrio Characters Collection event gives players the opportunity to obtain adorable in-game items like sofas, beds, hats and dresses featuring various Sanrio characters.
If that wasn’t enough, here’s more info on the upcoming DLC for Dragon Quest Builders 2.
- DRAGON QUEST BUILDERS 2 DLC: Fans who want to expand the range of things they can make in DRAGON QUEST BUILDERS 2 will have multiple options when one free DLC pack and three packs of paid DLC hit starting on July 26. Fans can purchase each paid pack of DLC separately or save on the combined cost of each pack with the Season Pass for only $20.99. Different packs offer different content, such as new locations to explore, additional recipes, new quests and a variety of customizable options like clothes and hairstyles.
