I know I’ve called previous Nintendo Download articles short, but this one really is. Sure, there’s a couple featured titles, but not much else. So I won’t waste time meandering, let’s just get started.

Nintendo Download | Linn Path of Orchards

Both of today’s featured games are very unusual. They’re just not the sort of games that Nintendo typically highlights. First up is Faeria. It’s a strategic board game that features both cards and a grid to play on. It also has attractive visual style and a massive single player campaign. The other game is Linn: Path of Orchards. It’s a puzzle platformer that reminds me of both GRIS and Celeste. Which is actually pretty cool. Next up, let’s continue the Nintendo Download with some sales.

Nintendo Download | WE ARE DOOMED

Here’s what the Game Guide has to offer us. If you like tactical RPGs, you might enjoy Dread Nautical for $11.99; for the definitive edition of a great game, try Battle Princess Madelyn Royal Edition for half off at $7.49; to take a chance on a cool looking game, there’s Neon City Riders for $14.99; for mayhem in space, check out Freedom Finger for $8.99; to get your Power Ranger on, try Chroma Squad for $9.99; retro fans might enjoy WONDER BOY RETURNS REMIX for $8.99; for an amazing discount on a unique puzzle game, try She Remembered Caterpillars for $0.99; or for a discount on a SHMUP, try Blue Rider for $2.99; to feel the music, try Akihabara – Feel the Rhythm Remixed for $1.99; RPG fans might enjoy The Lost Child for $14.99; or to get your cowboy on, try West of Loathing for $6.38; and lastly, for a new take on a classic story, try The Next Penelope for $2.59.

Nintendo Download | SAMURAI SHODOWN 2

There’s only a couple digital games for next week’s Nintendo Download. First up is Helheim Hassle, a narrative adventure with puzzle platforming. And then there’s Norman’s Great Illusion, which has you live a fraught year as an engineer.

Lastly, here’s the digital offerings for this week. Retro fans can be happy with multiple offerings – Arcade Archives CIRCUS CHARLIE, KING OF FIGHTERS R-2 and SAMURAI SHODOWN!2. VN fans have a couple options – Big Dipper and Collar X Malice -Unlimited-. For frenetic action, try WE ARE DOOMED and Zero Strain. For games styled like classics, try Cecconoid, Devious Dungeon Collection and The Ambassador: Fractured Timelines. Finally, for two rocking yet distinct adventures, try Bite the Bullet and Double Kick Heroes.
