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.
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.
