I know I’ve called previous Nintendo Download articles short, but this one really is. Sure, there’s a couple featured titles, but not much else. So I won’t waste time meandering, let’s just get started.
Both of today’s featured games are very unusual. They’re just not the sort of games that Nintendo typically highlights. First up is Faeria. It’s a strategic board game that features both cards and a grid to play on. It also has attractive visual style and a massive single player campaign. The other game is Linn: Path of Orchards. It’s a puzzle platformer that reminds me of both GRIS and Celeste. Which is actually pretty cool. Next up, let’s continue the Nintendo Download with some sales.
Here’s what the Game Guide has to offer us. If you like tactical RPGs, you might enjoy Dread Nautical for $11.99; for the definitive edition of a great game, try Battle Princess Madelyn Royal Edition for half off at $7.49; to take a chance on a cool looking game, there’s Neon City Riders for $14.99; for mayhem in space, check out Freedom Finger for $8.99; to get your Power Ranger on, try Chroma Squad for $9.99; retro fans might enjoy WONDER BOY RETURNS REMIX for $8.99; for an amazing discount on a unique puzzle game, try She Remembered Caterpillars for $0.99; or for a discount on a SHMUP, try Blue Rider for $2.99; to feel the music, try Akihabara – Feel the Rhythm Remixed for $1.99; RPG fans might enjoy The Lost Child for $14.99; or to get your cowboy on, try West of Loathing for $6.38; and lastly, for a new take on a classic story, try The Next Penelope for $2.59.
