Nintendo Download: PAC-MAN 99

Well, I didn't expect Pac-Man 99 to spring up out of nowhere on the eShop, but here we are. As of yesterday, Pac-Man 99 was announced and dropped on the eShop. It's there! And it's a Switch Online pack-in just like Tetris 99 ...

Nintendo Download: Star Wars: Republic Commando

It's that time again. We had a good run with a few brand new games, but now it's back to re-releases. Well, this one isn't quite the same! It's not a port of a six-month-old title that was released on every platform but Switch. No, it's Sta...

Nintendo Download: Monster Hunter Rise

Monster Hunter Rise is the big dog this week: no question. We haven't had too many of those this year so far for the Switch! A lot of the headliners have been things like Apex Legends coming to the Switch, or Plants vs. Zombies Ba...

The Wii U just got its first update in nearly three years

Well, what a thing to wake up to! Don't worry, it's not an exciting thing to wake up to. It's just a thing. Nintendo updated the Wii U again, for the first time in a while. Nintendo stealth-dropped a March 1, 2021 update, which adds the cla...

Nintendo Download: Bravely Default II

And we're back! 2021 is starting off on the right foot for Nintendo, as they've hosted a Mario re-release that has gotten a pretty positive reception so far, and this week we're getting the Switch exclusive Bravely Default II. It's a p...

Nintendo Download: Persona 5 Strikers

Atlus must be happy, as Persona 5 Strikers is finally out in the west on multiple platforms, including Switch! So far the Switch edition has been favorably received by critics (we only had access to the PS4 version), so time will tell ...

Nintendo Download: Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury

It's a huge day for the Switch, as we're getting Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, a bonafide first-party release. We haven't had much of those in the past year or so! And even when we do get them, a few are re-releases: like...

Nintendo Download: Skyforge

We're days away from a new Mario game. Well, a re-release of an old Mario game. But it has a new title! Before Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury gets here, there is other stuff to peruse on the Switch eShop. Like...Blue Fire! Or...

Nintendo Download: Tohu

We're gearing up for a huge Nintendo release (or should I say, another re-release that's probably going to be a huge hit) soon enough with Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury, but for now, we feast on indies. There's a lot of them today!&n...

Pokemon Snap still holds up in 2021

Plenty of you still have your original Pokémon Snap cartridge, but for those of us who never bought the 1999 photo-snapping spin-off (or strictly experienced it as a weekend rental way back when), it's not too late to go back before ...

The Netflix app for Wii U and 3DS will be shut off in June

It's too early to feel nostalgic about the Wii U – or is it? (You're right. It probably is.) Nintendo has confirmed that Netflix will no longer be usable on Wii U or 3DS as of June 30, 2021. The app was already delisted from the eShop...

Nintendo Download: Werewolf: The Apocalypse

First things first: this is not a revival of Bloody Roar. Nor is it a werewolf action game of any kind! Instead, it's based on the tabletop game by White Wolf Publishing, which was originally released in the '90s and is still alive and kick...

Nintendo Download: Welcome to the New Year

It's going to be a weird year with 2020 in our rear view mirror, I'll tell you that much. But for now: Switch games! There isn't a whole lot here today, as Nintendo isn't featuring anything in particular outside of the Crash Team Racing Nit...

Nintendo Download: Bit.Trip

I feel like saying that a "low key week" for a late-in-the-year Nintendo Download issue is commonplace: but this time, it's extremely low key. It's Christmas Eve! Happy holidays! A lot of folks are busy thinking about presents tomorrow or l...
