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!


Featured Games

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!

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
