Well folks, today’s Nintendo Download is a good day for cat lovers. The reason is, our sole featured game is a Metroidvania where you control a kitty in a mech suit! That may sound psychotic, but trust me it’s well worth trying out. Besides that, we have a couple different sales as well as new digital games. So let’s start by pouncing on a new Meowtroidvania!
I’ve enjoyed a lot of games by Devolver Digital. They seem fearless in publishing crazy and experimental titles that are flashy and compelling, and today’s entry is no different. It’s called Gato Roboto, and it’s a delightful, albeit linear, Metroidvania on PC and Switch. It officially released today, and it’s full of humor, action and giant boss fights. But if you’re still not convinced, you are welcome to read my review and judge for yourself!
Besides that lovely game, there are also a couple sales worth checking out. First, none other than Devolver Digital is having a 10th Anniversary Sale, with discounts from today until June 6th on a bunch of games. Though I won’t list all of them in this Nintendo Download, here’s some highlights – Ape Out, Crossing Souls, Downwell, Enter the Gungeon, GRIS, Katana Zero and Minit.
