This week the Nintendo Download has a couple of games I’m really invested in. Besides that, there’s some cool DLC upcoming for Cadence of Hyrule, sales and digital goodies per usual. Lets get started with several featured titles!
Today’s first featured title is one that caught my attention on the eShop’s Coming Soon section last week. It looks visually like Celeste, but Ageless is more of a puzzle platformer. It’s driven by story and has attractive pixel art, so it’s definitely on my radar now. The next game is one I’m incredibly hyped for, especially since I’ll be reviewing it soon. It’s none other than CARRION, and it has you play a monster escaping a laboratory, eating everything in sight and evolving. If you prefer more standard FPS games, Crysis Remastered might be more your cup of tea. If you prefer cyberpunk fun, then Dex might be the adventure for you. And lastly, fans of online gaming with others have Rogue Company to try out. Whew, pretty big start, but there’s more Nintendo Download below.
Remix Your Journey Through Hyrule with a Crescendo of Characters – Revisit the rhythmic action-adventure game Cadence of Hyrule – Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda for the Nintendo Switch system with a series of exciting new DLC Packs*. Pack #1 is available now for $5.99 and lets you re-orchestrate your Hyrule adventure with new challenges and five additional characters, including Shadow Link, Shadow Zelda and Impa from the Legend of Zelda series. Two additional DLC packs will launch later this year. Pack #2 will feature new remixes of popular The Legend of Zelda songs. Pack #3 will have a new story, songs and map featuring Skull Kid, who has the power to change abilities based on the different masks he wears. Get all three DLC packs as they release with the Season Pass, which can be purchased in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo.com for $14.99.
