Nintendo Digital Download: Take A Vacation To A Deserted Island
The moment many Switch owners have been waiting for is finally (almost) here. Animal Crossing: New Horizons releases tomorrow (March 20, 2020) and we couldn’t be more excited. That’s not all that’s coming to the Switch, so if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, maybe one of these will?
This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:
Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch
- Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Escape to a deserted island and create your own paradise as you explore, create and customize in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons game. Your island getaway has a wealth of natural resources that can be used to craft everything from tools to creature comforts. You can hunt down insects at the crack of dawn, decorate your paradise throughout the day or enjoy sunset on the beach while fishing in the ocean. The time of day and season match real life, so each day on your island is a chance to check in and find new surprises all year round. The Animal Crossing: New Horizons game will be available on March 20.
- Exit the Gungeon – Exit the Gungeon is a bullet-hell dungeon climber immediately following the events of Enter the Gungeon. Armed with an ever-changing weapon, an insatiable need to loot and the trusty dodge roll, each of our heroes must ascend and escape via their own unique route of increasingly perilous elevators.
- Sky Racket – Flying over whimsical worlds filled with vivid colors, it’s just you, a stylish scarf, a laser tennis racket and a horde of fluffy enemies trying to blow you back to the ground. Mixing the classic genres of shoot-’em-ups and block breakers, Sky Racket is the world’s first “Shmup Breaker!”
- DOOM 64 – Celebrate DOOM’s 25th anniversary with DOOM 64, originally released on the Nintendo 64 system in 1997. Take the fight to Hell with DOOM 64 on the Nintendo Switch system, available on March 20.
