Well guys and gals, I hoped this Nintendo Download would build off the momentum of last week’s, but sadly it’s gone the other way. This is a super short and sweet Nintendo Download. That said, there is a very interesting featured title, a new mobile event, the usual sales and a few digital games to enjoy. Let’s start with a surprising new RPG from the folks behind Professor Layton and YO-KAI Watch.

Nintendo Download | SNACK WORLD

LEVEL-5 has proven they’re capable of tackling different genres in the past, ranging from puzzle to sports to RPGs. So while it’s true they’ve done various genres before, I was still surprised to see that today’s featured title is also by them. It’s called SNACK WORLD: THE DUNGEON CRAWL — GOLD. That’s a mouthful. It looks to be a single or multiplayer experience where you fight monsters and crawl dungeons. If you’re a fan of customization, you’ll be happy to hear you have complete control over your playable character’s appearance. You can also summon “snacks”, portraits of monsters brought to life. If that wasn’t enough, SNACK WORLD will also include a bunch of free DLC from the original Japanese release. If nothing else, it sounds interesting. Let’s continue this Nintendo Download with a brand spanking new event.
