This week’s Nintendo Download features a couple of big publisher sales, Mario Kart got a ton of DLC tracks and Gal*Gal: Double Peace makes it’s way to the Switch. Let’s dig in and see all the happenings this week on the eShop.

The Mario Kart Deluxe 8 – Booster Course Pass is coming tomorrow and will add new courses to your Mario Kart experience. There will be 48 new courses in total starting with the first wave that features courses from the N64 Choco Mountain, Wii Coconut Mall, and locations like Tokyo Blur and Paris Promenade from Mario Kart Tour. There will be six waves of eight course that will release throughout the year. Folks that have the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack will be able to use these tracks at no extra charge.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is finally out on the Nintendo Switch. Duke it out with the cast of Persona 3 and Persona 4 in this fantastic Arc System Works brawler. There are plenty of great modes to play with including a deep story mode.

Gal*Gun: Double Peace has finally landed on the Nintendo Switch. The story here follows young boy named Houdai is shot by the cupid angel Ekoro. She gave him a stupidly overpowered shot and he becomes immensely popular and suddenly every girl at the academy becomes hot for him. He must find true love by the end of the day or he will keep this curse forever! I did a review of this one, and this is a very solid part of this fantastic Rail Shooter.

This week in Sales and Deals Capcom and Square Enix are having publisher sales. Need to snag up some Devil May Cry titles or Final Fantasy these sales have you covered this week. Both of these pubs have a ton of their greatest titles on sale at deeply discounted prices.

Here is a full list of titles coming to the eShop this week:

That will do it for this week’s Nintendo Download. Come back next week for more information about the goodies on the Nintendo eShop.

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.
