This week the Nintendo Download includes a quartet of featured titles headlined by No More Heroes 3. We also have a longer, and varied list of new eShop games to check out.
Additionally, Nintendo has released a free demo for WarioWare: Get It Together!
The first of our four featured games this week is No More Heroes 3 ($59.99). Travis Touchdown is back August 27th exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. He is all that stands between Earth and the evil Prince FU. The Prince and his alien assassins are bent on conquering the Earth and making it their own!
Next up, we have a pair of games. Spelunky ($9.99) and Spelunky 2 ($19.99) have landed on the Switch. Delve into the depths of the underground and search for treasure. Naturally, you’d better keep an eye out for traps and monsters as well. The Indiana Jones lifestyle is no walk in the park after all!
Like the first featured game today, Baldo The guardian owls ($24.99) arrives on August 27th. As evil rises again in the underworld, a pure-heart child is born. Explore a magical land, uncover mysteries, and solve challenging puzzles. Can you unravel the cryptic prophecy and save the world?
Rounding out this week’s featured games is co-op puzzler KeyWe ($24.99). Two kiwi birds (Jeff and Debra) are the newest faces at the Bungalow Basin Telepost Office. They have no hands, so they must work together to succeed. The mail must be delivered, hands or no hands!
New this week are two sales. The PAC-MAN 99 DLC sale gets you 20% savings on DLC for the game until September 9th at 11:59 pm PT.
Rounding out the sales scene today is the Humble Games Publisher sale. Enjoy up to 75% off on 14 games until September 9th at 11:59 pm PT. Included are titles such as A Hat in Time ($14.99 |
$29.99), Forager ($9.99 | $19.99), and Void Bastards ($14.99 | $29.99).
