Nintendo Digital Download: Watch Out For The Touryst Traps
With all the big AAA releases done for the year, the Switch eShop has begun to slow down ever so slightly. There’s still some worthy games to check out:
This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:
- Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch
- The Touryst – In this surreal adventure game, your idyllic vacation is about to get very strange. Choices abound when arriving at the Monument Islands. Want to go swimming? Or take a dive into the deep sea? Or would you rather visit the amusement arcade, do some shopping and dance at a beach party? Or will you talk with the enigmatic old tourist and listen to what he has to say about these ancient mysterious monuments?
- Black Future ’88 – Black Future ’88 is a synth-punk roguelike 2D action shooter. Vertically climb an always-evolving, procedural tower to reach the top and destroy its owner before your heart explodes. Shoot, slash, dash and upgrade yourself to survive the endless waves of deadly traps, hostile AI and colossal Wardens standing in your way in a stylish alternative version of 1988
- Nintendo Mobile
- ’Tis the Season to Put Your Keys in the Ignition – A beautiful blanket of snow has descended in the Mario Kart Tour game* during the special Winter Tour event, which runs until Dec. 3. Mario looks quite jolly in his Santa suit while staying warm with a Fire Flower. Meanwhile, Pink Gold Peach spreads some wintertime joy as she speeds past sparkling decorations. Additionally, with a new update, players can now drive with a dedicated “Drift” button now added in Automatic Drift mode, and a “Steer” button added in Manual Drift mode, there’s never been a better time to join the race!
