Welcome to the second Nintendo Download of December. The featured list, led by Life is Strange: True Colors, is a tad longer than last week. The sales section has grown more active, while the new eShop titles list has dwindled in size a bit more this week.


Featured Games

Life is Strange: True Colors arrived on the Switch two days ago. As such, the next era of the series is now playable on the go. Alex possesses the ability (or maybe curse) of being able to experience and take in the emotions of others. She can even manipulate these feelings. Furthermore, Alex can also see these emotions as colored auras. However, as fate would have it, this ability becomes pivotal in finding the truth after her brother dies in a “so-called accident”.


Loop Hero just hit the Nintendo Switch today. The Lich has spiraled the world into chaos by plunging it into a timeless loop. Use an expanding deck of cards to place terrain, buildings, and enemies. You’ll also need to collect powerful loot for each hero class, which will aid them in future battles. Meanwhile, you’ll also want to expand the survivors’ camp, and unlock new cards, classes, perks, and guardians. Can you end the cycle of chaos that plagues the land?


Also just launching today is the crafting game, Wytchwood. You are a mysterious witch in the woods living in a world of gothic fables. Collect ingredients to brew enchantments. Research new spells and cast judgment on various characters and creatures. The moral of the story is up to you, so what is it?


Next up, Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon lands on the Switch on December 13th. Shovel Knight will find himself up against tons of foes and bosses. Along the way, he’ll obtain better equipment, too. Adventure as your favorite heroes in a roguelite puzzle hybrid as each twist of this tale unfolds before you. Alternatively, you can also take on a buddy in some friendly competition.


Nintendo Switch Online

As you may have heard, Paper Mario has now joined the N64 library on Nintendo Switch Online.

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.
