Hope everybody appreciated the ‘break’ last week, cause this Nintendo Download is much busier. Not only do we have several great featured titles, but there’s some new games coming to Nintendo Switch Online. There’s also the usual sales and digital goodies. Let’s start with 4 games, many of which I’m quite excited are coming out soon.
One game I’ve heard many good things about is CrossCode. My issue was I didn’t want to play it on PC. Well, now it’s officially on Nintendo Switch, in all its glorious 16-bit style. If you prefer insanity, you might appreciate Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise. Meander through past and present while trying to solve a murder. Then there’s Neon Abyss. It’s a colorful and frenetic roguelike with tons of style, from the folks at Team17. Last but not least, tomorrow you can finally try Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2. I won’t go into details now, other than to say stay tuned for my official review tomorrow morning! Now let’s continue the Nintendo Download with some new entries for Nintendo Switch Online.
- Donkey Kong Country – Armed with chest-pounding muscle, mighty barrel rolls and awesome vine-swinging skills, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong set out to face their adversaries, K. Rool and his reptilian crew of Kremlings. Play solo, compete with a friend or play cooperatively in over 100 levels filled with collectibles and hidden bonus levels. Donkey Kong Country will be available on July 15.
- Natsume Championship Wrestling – Choose from 12 outrageous wrestlers and bring the pain! With a robust grappling system and over 50 moves to master, experience the most realistic wrestling action of the 16-bit era. Test your might against the AI, or up to two players can compete in exhibition, tag team and round robin matches. Natsume Championship Wrestling will be available on July 15.
- The Immortal – Grab your Wizard’s Pack and let your quest unfold as you explore the Labyrinth of Eternity. Delve into the dungeon’s depths to uncover the mysteries of the ancient ruins. Your teacher Mordamir awaits below! The Immortal will be available on July 15.
