I hope you all enjoyed last week’s hefty Nintendo Download, since this week is very short and sweet (again). The good news is, there are a decent amount of digital games and sales to tide you over, as well as the latest rollout of Fire Emblem Echoes DLC! So let’s see what’s worth playing, shall we?
For all you Fire Emblem fans, today the Rise of the Deliverance Pack goes live. This one is special, since it’s more than just a map to grind on or a way to get new class changes. This offers a prequel of sorts to the main game, showing how the Deliverance came to rise up against tyranny in Valentia. It also lets you play as new characters, along with support conversations, which is a nice touch. If you have the Season Pass, this will download automatically. I myself love any excuse to wring more lore out of Fire Emblem games, so this will be a nice distraction. For those who don’t have the Season Pass, this DLC Pack costs $12.99 and offers 4 pieces of content.
On the sales front, there is a special deal happening until June 5th. A bevy of Capcom games are discounted up to 75% off for their publisher sale. Despite my own personal complaints against the company in recent years, there are still plenty of worthwhile games to check out. The following are the highlights – Mega Man Legacy Collection for $5.99; Phoenix Wright – Dual Destinies for $10.19; Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy for $14.99; Resident Evil Revelations for $9.99 (I really need to beat that game); DuckTales Remastered for $3.74 and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for $7.99. If you want to see the rest of the games featured, just click here. Besides those, the other featured price drops are all games we’ve covered recently, but if you want a refresher, just check here.
Finally, there are a few new digital offerings worth checking out this week. First and foremost is a new game in the ACA NEOGEO series. I haven’t bit the bullet on any of those yet, but I’m quickly reaching critical mass, and feel I will have to start picking them up, starting with the latest, ACA NEOGEO LAST RESORT. This game looks like what would happen if Contra and R-Type had a baby, and I love the old school 90’s vibe. There’s also an interesting 3DS game called Of Mice and Sand, which has you control a group of mice in a giant rambling base. You set them to tasks to increase resources and recruit more cheese eaters, all in your quest to reach the end of the desert you’re stuck in. Lastly, if you’re itching for a match 3 game, try out Swap Blocks on Wii U. This is pretty much a cut and paste job for any other match 3 title of relevance, but it still looks fun for the price tag.
Quick sidenote, even though this wasn’t directly mentioned by Nintendo, I know for a fact that the Blaster Master Zero DLC is live now, so check out the following trailer if you have the game and are interested in what you see.
That’s it for this week’s Nintendo Download! Let us know in the comments if you’ve picked up any of the ACA NEOGEO games for your Nintendo Switch, and if you are hyped for any of the upcoming Summer releases!
