It’s time for another Nintendo Download, and this week we have three featured games lead by Miitopia. We also have a set of five new SNES and NES games coming to Nintendo Switch Online next week.

 

Featured Games


Miitopia ($49.99) is only hours from launching on the Nintendo Switch at the time of this writing. Unlike most games, this one sees you stepping into your own mii shoes to embark on a great adventure. The Dark Lord has stolen many faces, and you must rescue them! Miitopia‘s mii creator is more powerful than ever, with new options like wigs and makeup, and you can give each mii personalities and jobs such as Chef, Pop Star, and Warrior.

 

Knockout City is also just hours away from launch as of this writing. This one is not available for pre-order so the price is not listed yet. Customize your character, team up, and battle it out in this hectic dodge ball game. Take out your foes with trick shots while dodging incoming attacks and take your team to glorious victory!

 

This week’s final major featured game is Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster ($49.99). Launching early next week on May 24th, it revives an ATLUS classic. A normal day in Tokyo soon becomes all but normal when an ethereal apocalypse is unleashed upon the world. A broken city finds itself besieged by a demonic revolution. It’s up to you to bring life, rebirth, or death, as your actions will decide who wins in the end.

 

Nintendo Switch Online

Nintendo announced a few days ago that five new SNES and NES games are coming to Nintendo Switch Online next week. The new set includes four games for the SNES and a single NES title. This new group of games will also mark a milestone for the service, bringing it to over 100 games in all. There will be a total of 104 titles in the Switch Online NES/SNES library once this update launches on May 26th.

That wraps up this Nintendo Download, with just one more left to go in May. Take care out there.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
