Nintendo Digital Download: Pink Puffs, Slimes & Double Dragons Galore


It’s another busy week on the Nintendo eShop, especially for Switch! From the makers of I Am Setsuna comes their next RPG: Lost Sphear. This one arrives next week on January 23!

If you like old-school challenging RPGs, then Darkest Dungeon might be up your alley. This one features turn-based combat and a unique story and systems.

The pink puff is back in Kirby Battle Royale for the Nintendo 3DS. This one has you fighting yourself in a tournament. Both single player and multiplayer are available. If you’re on the fence, download the free demo today.

World to the West is from the same developers as Teslagrad. This one has you controlling multiple characters to solve puzzles, find keys, and unravel the mysteries of the world. It’s available today on Switch.

One of my favorites from the ’80s is Double Dragon. The arcade version finally makes its way to the Switch today and features 2 player co-op – something that was missing from the original NES game. Take to the streets and brawl your way to victory.

Read on for the all of the releases:
