Nintendo Digital Download: Happy New Year!

The start of 2018 is beginning with a whimper instead of a bang. It seems the majority of game studios rushed to get their games onto the eShop before Christmas. This is probably the lowest amount of games we’ve seen released in a single week in over a year. The games normally go up on the eShop at 9am PT / 11am CT / 12pm ET. Check out the details below:


This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:
  • Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS
    • Kirby Battle Royale – Demo Version – In this demo, Kirby enters a tournament against his toughest rival yet…himself! The demo allows players to try three battles in the single-player and multiplayer* modes. Try the Sword, Cutter and Beetle ability, and transfer Meta Knight and coins as a bonus to the main game once you purchase the full version! The full version of the Kirby Battle Royale game launches Jan. 19 and is now available for pre-purchase in Nintendo eShop. Game in 2D.

Also new this week:
