It’s that time of week again, so another Nintendo Download is here! We have three featured games this time, from Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time to Stubbs The Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse. There are a couple of major sales and plenty of new eShop titles as well.

 

Featured Games


Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time ($39.99) has just launched on the Nintendo Switch. Crash and Coco must collect four Quantum Masks to save the world from Neo Cortex and N. Tropy. This entry in the series has new characters, abilities, and bosses. For those who purchase the digital edition, you’ll unlock the Totally Tubular skins for Crash and Coco when you beat level two!

 

Also just launched is Cyanide & Happiness – Freakpocalypse ($17.99 | $19.99). Somewhere in the Cyanide & Happiness universe lives Coop McCarthy, an orphan in high school who doesn’t fit in. He is bullied by everyone, can’t find a date, and basically his life sucks! Will he save the world or screw up and make things worse? Then there is the question of why the game is subtitled “Freakpocalypse”? You’ll have to step into Coop’s shoes to find out!

 

Our third and final featured title for today is Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse ($19.99). This title is coming out in a few more days on March 16th. The year is 1959, a time when Punchbowl, PA is an idyllic place to live. However, as it turns out, that’s all about to change! You are a dead man out to teach the living a lesson! Eat brains and turn your enemies into fellow zombies to help you attack the city!
