Hope you guys are in a strange mood, cause this is a odd Nintendo Download. Not the same as bad, mind you, but definitely odd. There’s two very eclectic featured titles, new content comes to Nintendo Switch Online, DLC for a well known fighter and more. But let’s start with two games I never thought I’d see back to back on a Nintendo console.
Minecraft was PC only for so long that I’m still a bit confused when I see it on consoles. And I’m not even one of the people that plays it, but that doesn’t mean I don’t know about it. Today we’re getting something called Minecraft Dungeons. Honestly, this might be the first Minecraft game I play. It’s a dungeon crawler solo or with friends, and it reminds me a lot of Riverbond. Eerily so. But that doesn’t mean Minecraft Dungeons isn’t fun in its own right. The other game is one I can almost guarantee I’ll never play, and it’s called WHAT THE GOLF? Long story short, I don’t really care about sports, but I at least acknowledge the athleticism of most athletes. Not so in golf, the rich person’s sport. But if you like hitting tiny white balls with clubs, and want golf with silly physics and crazy mayhem, you might enjoy this. Hell, maybe I would too. But I’m not finding out anytime soon. Next up, let’s continue the Nintendo Download with the latest titles to grace Nintendo Switch Online.
Nintendo Switch Online
- Wild Guns – The Kid gang and their army of robots have taken over! Blast your way through villainous outlaws, diabolical robots and towering, screen-filling bosses. Fortunately, you’ve got plenty of moves to help you survive the firepower headed your way. You’ll need a sharp eye and quick-on-the-draw reflexes to survive on your own. Or team up with a friend and go out blazing in two-player co-op.
- Panel de Pon – As the stack of puzzle pieces rises, think fast to match panels and set off cascading chain reactions and combos. You’ll have to make strategic choices quickly to counteract the relentless competitor attacks from above. A selection of single-player and two-player modes and options provides escalating action and zippy fun. This title originally launched for the Super Famicom in 1995, but this is the first time this version of the game will be available in the U.S. Though this title was never translated into English, it may seem familiar!
- Operation Logic Bomb – Agent Logan has been fitted with bioelectronic implants that grant him superior strength, reflexes and analytical abilities. He’s been charged with a mission to save the Subspace Particle Transfer Project. Now it’s up to him to infiltrate, neutralize the intruders and rescue the scientists in a top-down shooter with giant bosses and frenzied action that doesn’t let up.
- Rygar – An old legend proclaimed, “When the peaceful land is covered with evil spirits, a brave soldier will be brought to life from the dead.” Luckily, Rygar, the mythical hero from Argus, has arrived in order to defeat the evil king Ligar and his army of dangerous beasts. Join forces with Rygar for a hybrid action-adventure game with a distinct blend of platforming and role-playing elements!
But that’s not all! Fans of fatalities might enjoy the following new DLC.
Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath – Continue the critically acclaimed Mortal Kombat 11 storyline in a new adventure. Fragile alliances are tested and the fate of two worlds hang in the balance. Now is the time to forge a new history. This DLC also includes three new playable fighters: Sheeva, Fujin and Robocop. New players can purchase the Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Collection, which includes the base game and the Aftermath DLC. In the original Mortal Kombat 11 cinematic story, take on the role of Earthrealm’s protectors as a menacing new foe bends the forces of time, threatening to turn the tide and rewrite their own dark history.
