Nintendo Digital Download: Double The Dragons

Some Switch owners have been clamoring for a Virtual Console type service to return. While many are happy with the NES Switch Online games that are included with a paid membership, some had hoped to be able to purchase them individually to own. Arc System Works (American Technos back in the day) is doing just that with some of their classic NES games starting today. Check out the full list of Switch eShop titles available between today and next Wednesday:

 

OFFICIAL PR:

This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:

  • Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch
    • Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope* – Enjoy the original standalone adventure that launched Shovel Knight on his quest to discover the true meaning of shovel justice. Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope is a sweeping, classic action-adventure game with awesome gameplay, memorable characters and an 8-bit retro aesthetic. It’s a hot mashup of new and old! You play as the eponymous Shovel Knight, a small warrior with a huge quest. Shovel Knight has come to this land with two goals: to defeat the evil Enchantress and quest for his lost beloved. He wields a Shovel Blade: a multipurpose weapon whose techniques have now been lost to the ages. Always honest and helpful, Shovel Knight is a shining example of the code of Shovelry: Slash Mercilessly and Dig Tirelessly!
    • Later Daters – You’re the newest resident at Ye OLDE retirement community, where you’ll meet a cast of charming seniors who are all eager to greet you. It’s a lot like summer camp, but with orthopedic shoes, bridge clubs and way more gelatin. Customize your look, name, history and gender as you date and flirt with eight fetching residents of Ye OLDE. Adventure, passion and transformation are all on the table in this role-playing simulation. Who knows: maybe these will turn out to be the best years of your life!
