Make sure you link your Nintendo ID properly for it to work.

So what games are on the table? Well, there’s Extreme Exorcism, forma.8, Freedom Planet, Lovely Planet, Mutant Mudds Super Challenge, RIVE, Runbow, Soul Axiom, and Typoman. Some of these are exclusive to Nintendo, and a few are multiplatform. Whatever you decide to download, we’ve played a handful and will share our thoughts later today.
