Nintendo Digital Download: Summer Rewards
We’re into that slow portion of the year where summer has taken hold. Next week we’ll get another big Nintendo game when ARMS releases, but for now it’s smaller titles:
This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:
- Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch
- Cars 3: Driven to Win – Start your engines and gear up for the ultimate racing experience in Cars 3: Driven to Win, inspired by Disney Pixar’s upcoming film Cars 3. Train and advance your abilities in six game modes and challenge your family and friends in the Battle Race to become the Ultimate Champion. Cars 3: Driven to Win will be available on June 13.
(Additional accessories may be required for multiplayer mode and are sold separately.)
- Virtual Console on Wii U
- Alien Crush – Alien Crush is a pinball game that features realistic pinball action and superb “biomechanical” graphics. Complete with a function to nudge the machine, this TurboGrafx-16 game feels like you’re playing on a real pinball machine! Extra balls and bonus points are your keys to getting high scores.
- Neutopia II – Experience improved graphics and controls in this exciting TurboGrafx-16 sequel to the original action RPG. Once again you’ll need to rely on your magic compass and the information you’ve gathered to find entrances to labyrinths and defeat the bosses in them. Make your way through the field to search for and find hidden information and items, or move blocks and destroy walls to uncover secret rooms.Nintendo eShop sales:
