Well folks, time for another Nintendo Download! This one isn’t super long, but it makes up for it with some exciting featured titles, the usual sales and some promising digital games. So let’s start with the latest adventure in the Paper Mario series, coming out tomorrow!
Though I’ve had my issues with the Paper Mario series, at the least I can say they’re attractive and creative. Paper Mario: The Origami King looks to continue that trend, with a crazy and humorous tale featuring some interesting new battle mechanics. While some may groan about a lack of XP, myself included, I am still more than willing to give it a shot. But that’s not all this week! This Nintendo Download also has Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus, a cool tactical RPG I’ve been waiting to make the Switch since I played it at E3. There’s also quirky adventure game Neversong, where you fight monsters with your trusty baseball bat. And last but certainly not least, we have Panzer Paladin, an indie I’ve been waiting to get my hands on since I learned it existed. Let’s continue this Nintendo Download with the weekly sales.
Before we move onto the Game Guide, there’s a special sale happening. Newcomers Team17 has a Summer Sale lasting from today until the 26th, and it offers up to 90% off their titles. I won’t list all of them, but the following are worth checking out – Blasphemous, My Time at Portia, Overcooked Special Edition, Overcooked! 2, Sheltered, Yoku’s Island Express and Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair.
