It’s just as well this Nintendo Download is short and sweet, cause it’s been a hard week for me. I’m hopeful that changes next week, but in the meantime I have some games to share with you all. Despite the short nature, this Nintendo Download still has 3 featured titles, the usual Game Guide sales and a few digital adventures to check out. Let’s start with a game I never thought I’d see on a Nintendo console.
Not too long ago, it was a small miracle for mature themed games to wind up on a Nintendo system. But that’s changed in recent years, and I couldn’t be happier. One product of that fundamental shift is the release of Catherine: Full Body on the Switch. This mature puzzle / adventure with relationship elements has always stood out for how different it was. Now with Full Body, Nintendo fans get multiple endings, a new love interest and portable puzzling. But if that sounds a bit much, you might prefer Superliminal. It has you dive through a mysterious world and solve puzzles in first person. Lastly, there’s also Vigor. It’s a free historical adventure that has you survive in post-war Norway. But that’s not all for this week. Let’s continue this Nintendo Download with some sales.
Here’s what the Game Guide has for us this week. If you enjoy crazy platformers, you might like the StoryTale for $10.79; or for something with more explosions, try Infinite – Beyond the Mind for $4.99; for a good discount on a duo with attractive pixel art, try the Valfaris & Slain Double Pack for $13.99; for a cute looking VN, try Half Past Fate for $11.99; or for some furry heroics, try Kemono Heroes for $10.04; for a really good discount, try Arc of Alchemist for more than half off at $7.99; or for a compilation of several different series, try Code Shifter for $4.80; to race some waifu, try GENSOU Skydrift for $19.19; for a harrowing adventure, try Raging Loop for $20.99; for something totally strange, there’s Space Cows for $1.99; fans of robot customization mayhem might enjoy Hookbots for $9.99; or fans of weirdness can try Umihara Kawase Fresh! for $9.99; Metrodivania fans might like Eagle Island for $11.99; or for a good discount on a mystery, try Worldend Syndrome for $16; and lastly, for some cyberpunk fun, try VA-11 Hall-A for $9.89.

Finally, let’s close out this Nintendo Download with this week’s digital games. There’s nothing worth mentioning for next week, so here’s what to check out. Fans of retro might enjoy Arcade Archives Wiz and Clash Force (which looks like the illegitimate love child of TMNT). If you like to be thrifty, you might like the Digerati Indie Darling Bundle Vol. 3, which includes 4 different games! Those that love robots and co-op could try Biped. Or for frantic arcade action, try Ghost Grab 3000 and SWARMRIDERS. Horror fans should check out Infliction: Extended Cut. Or to roller skate to victory, try Keen: One Girl Army. And lastly, for a duo of titles with a focus on story, try The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature and GRISAIA PHANTOM TRIGGER 01&02.
Not bad for a short week. Thanks for joining us here at oprainfall for your weekly Nintendo Download, and hopefully next week will be better.
