It may be E3 week, but we still have the usual North American Nintendo Download Update details. This week has two tempting retail releases on Switch along with a couple of downloads on the system. The 3DS and Wii U don't miss out, either, with the portable in particular offering an interesting mix of titles. Let's get to it.
Missed the European Nintendo Download Update? Don't panic, the details are right here.
Nintendo Switch Retail Downloads
ARMS (Nintendo, $59.99USD) - This new IP now needs little introduction, and Switch owners can soon get into some fights with wacky extendable arms. Solid online options, varied modes and more content coming for free in the future, some reckon this'll be Nintendo's 'next big thing'. We were certainly fans in our ARMS review. Available from 16th June.
Cave Story+ (Nicalis, $29.99USD) - Another indie darling / classic gets the Switch treatment with a retail option, with this iteration bringing Cave Story to Nintendo's latest hardware. With co-op included (along with other extras) this adds a little more to the formula in addition to being the 'definitive' version. Available from 20th June.
Nintendo Switch eShop
Mighty Gunvolt Burst (Inti Creates, $9.99USD) - This adopts retro-style visuals and the action platforming puts an emphasis on getting close to enemies before attacking. With nods to past Inti Creates gems this certainly looks promising, and will also come to 3DS later this month.
Sengoku (HAMSTER, $7.99USD) - The Neo Geo ACA games keep coming, this time with a beat 'em up arcade title. We reviewed this a long time ago on the Wii Virtual Console, and will take a fresh look soon.
New Nintendo 3DS Retail Download
Runbow Pocket (13AM Games, $29.99USD) - Runbow certainly made an impact on the Wii U, and now heads to the New 3DS in a couple of different forms to offer us the colour-swapping platforming on the go. That price above is for the boxed retail edition that includes all of the DLC, but it'll cost less on the eShop with DLC being optional extras. You can learn more about it in this update from the developers. Available from 20th June.
River City: Knights of Justice (Natsume, $14.99USD) - Known in Japan as Nekketsu Mahou Monogatari, this takes the series into a medieval RPG adventure, which is quite a change-up for the franchise; it promises over 100 quests and multiple paths. Available from 20th June.
I am an air traffic controller AIRPORT HERO OSAKA-KIX (Sonic Powered Co., $19.99USD) - This is the third entry in this series in which you take on the frantic task of safely guiding planes on and off of the runways. You can choose from Story and Operation modes, with Kansai International Airport the destination this time around.
3DS eShop Demo
Miitopia (Nintendo, free)
Wii U eShop
Mutant Alien Moles of the Dead (EnjoyUp Games, $2.99USD) - A rather colourful title that could certainly be rather fun, promising a 'game of reflexes' that mixes up gameplay. Part whack-a-mole, part Game & Watch platforming and 'rock-paper-scissors' battles, it looks suitably bonkers.
