Well guys and gals, it’s that day of week, which means time for yet another Nintendo Download! This week isn’t quite so jam-packed as last, but there’s still plenty to enjoy. New games are gracing the Nintendo Switch Online service, there’s new sales and even a half gallon of new digital offerings. So let’s get started with today’s sole featured game, which should grab the attention of comic fans everywhere.
Everybody complains about their backlog, and mine is nuts too. One of the games I most regret not delving deeper into was Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2. I got started and enjoyed it, but back then I didn’t have internet access, and it was difficult finding the time to get my friends together to play. But things have changed, and thanks to my snazzy Nintendo Switch, I’m more than ready to jump back onto the Marvel bandwagon with Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order! Not only has Marvel seen a huge renaissance since the last game, but there’s just so many more characters they can bring to the table. Now you can play as Guardians of the Galaxy, Fantastic Four, Marvel Knights and more. But best of all, this entry has both local and online multiplayer, so you’ll never need to play alone. I’m really hyped for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, and if you are too, then be happy that it’s coming out tomorrow!
Next up, let’s check out the new free games courtesy of the Nintendo Switch Online service. These are the newest duo of titles:
- Wrecking Crew – In the days before Mario and Luigi became sports stars in their downtime from saving the princess, they tried their hands as one-man wrecking crews. With a hammer as their only tool, take control of the brothers and set out to destroy ladders, rip out pipes, knock out walls and detonate explosive devices. But make sure to plan your path of destruction carefully, as each building is designed as its own clever puzzle.
- Donkey Kong 3 – Based on the third game in the enormously popular arcade series, Donkey Kong 3 introduces an exterminator named Stanley as he desperately tries to protect the flowers in his greenhouse from Donkey Kong. Armed only with a can of bug spray, Stanley must force Donkey Kong higher and higher into the greenhouse rafters until Donkey Kong is off the screen and the next stage is reached.
