I almost thought this Nintendo Download was gonna be a short one. After all, there’s one featured title, no events and no Switch Online additions. And yet, thanks to the sales and digital goodies, this is gonna be a pretty hefty Nintendo Download. Let’s start with a featured title I’m personally rather excited about, chronicling a tale of sweet revenge in the Weird West.
A while back, I got a chance to demo a totally over the top, super violent action game called Bloodroots. You’re a man bent on revenge, and you do so by any means necessary. The hook of the experience is that everything can be used as a weapon, and anything can instantly kill you or your foes. So I used barrels for fatalities, saws, cannons, shovels and so much more. It was a raucous demo, and the fact that everything is usable made it a really cool one. Now in just one short day, Bloodroots will be out on Switch, and I couldn’t be happier. Well, I’d be slightly more happy if it weren’t today’s only featured title, but you know what I mean. Honestly, if you like quirky, stylish and insane games, you should check it out. Next, let’s see what sales we have to enjoy for this Nintendo Download.
