I think the Nintendo gods heard me last week, cause this Nintendo Download is much more jam packed. Not only are there a handful of featured titles to cover, there’s a new event, sales and still a bunch of digital games to enjoy. So I’ll stop building the tension and jump right into the games!
Growing up, I never thought we’d see the day where violent and over the top games could easily transition to a Nintendo console. Well, now we’ll be getting none other than Mortal Kombat 11 later this month, in all its bloody glory. However, if you want a game inspired by violent mayhem but with more tactical flair, you might enjoy Reigns: Game of Thrones. Or if you want some psychological crazy, you might prefer Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. For reliving the past, there’s Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster. And lastly, for a relaxing adventure, you might enjoy My Time at Portia. Next up, let’s cover an interesting event starting tomorrow.
Tetris® 99 2nd MAXIMUS CUP – From April 12 at 6 a.m. PT through April 14 at 11:59 p.m. PT, earn event points by playing matches during the event. Placing higher in a match will award you more points, and every 100 points will count as one TETRIS MAXIMUS. After the event, the top 999 players with the most event points will be notified, and will each receive 999 My Nintendo Gold Points*.
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Void where prohibited. Open to legal residents of the US and Canada (excluding Quebec) who are ages 13+ and Mexico who are 18+ and have access to a Nintendo Switch system, Tetris® 99 game, Internet access and a Nintendo Switch Online membership. Contest begins 6:00 AM PT on 4/12/19 and ends at 11:59 PM PT on 4/14/19. To participate, you must play the Tetris® 99 game during the Contest Period. There will be 999 winners, selected based on who accumulates the most event points during the Contest Period. Each winner will receive 999 My Nintendo Gold Points (ARV per prize $10 US). Skill of participating players determines the winners. See Official Rules for details and restrictions.
There’s also plenty of sales worth checking out this week, praise to the Game Guide gods.
