Life has been crazy lately, but that’s what videogames are for. To get us through tumult and inspire our imagination. This Nintendo Download isn’t the largest, but there’s still some quality games. Hell, there’s even mobile news, and that’s quite rare. Besides that, there’s the usual contenders, including featured titles, game sales and digital goodies. Let’s start with the casual title everybody seems to love.
It appears that Animal Crossing: New Horizons is officially celebrating Summer with the wave 2 update. It will add fireworks displays, dream islands and more to the popular entry. But thankfully that’s not all for featured titles. You can also race through the skies in Lost Wing or roll through perilous lands in Skully. Some pretty eclectic fare, for sure. Let’s continue with news from Dr. Mario World.
Dr. Mario World One-Year Anniversary – The free-to-start Dr. Mario World game has reached its one-year milestone and the mobile game has continued to grow with fun new features. To mark the occasion, Dr. Mario World players can now receive 8-Bit Dr. Mario, a playable character with special skills, as a free login bonus. 8-Bit Dr. Mario is available now and can be acquired until Aug. 30 at 10:59 p.m. PT.
It wouldn’t be a Nintendo Download without some sales. There’s some interesting ones to check out this week. Fans of multiplayer can enjoy Aeolis Tournament for $12.74; SHMUP fans can play UBERMOSH:BLACK for only $0.49; those who want to get lost in the tropics can try Summer in Mara for $21.24; platformer fans can try FLATLAND Vol. 1 for $0.99; or if you prefer tactical mayhem, try Children of Zodiarcs for $13.49; for a hardcore Metroidvania, try 3000th Duel for $8.99; you can nab a hefty discount for Blacksad: Under the Skin for only $19.99; those looking for old school might enjoy Whipseey for $0.99; those looking to take a chance can try OTTTD: Over The Top Tower Defense for $0.79; and lastly, for a surreal adventure, try Figment for $4.99.
