So that's your lot for this week's Nintendo Download. Go on, be a sport and drop a vote in the poll above, and comment below with your hot picks!
Eagerly awaiting my Ninja Gaiden physical edition! This collection is what I've been hoping for since Day 1 of the Switch!
I like how you highlighted this week's biggest release, Notes, in the subheading. It's always reassuring when a game's description includes the disclaimer 'it works perfectly'.
I was wondering when someone would nab the coveted 'League Of Champions' license. And there was me worried that there would be cheap cash-ins to coincide with the start of the Euros.
Still upset about no physical release of Garage Builder in EU, so I guess I’ll buy the digital version. Does anyone now at what time is it suppose to be released?
Spirit is even more firmly on my radar now after finally catching the movie yesterday - while not the original's tier (which is a hardly condemning "underachievement" since Stallion of the Cimarron remains one of my all-time favourite movies PERIOD - and there are still fewer than a dozen of those in total), it does the franchise's legacy and lore enough justice to be one of the most fun recent DW movies this side of vikings and dragons. I'm definitely in the market for a promised freeroam actventure opportunity to spend more time with the characters, even considering the low odds of witnessing Abigail's godlike shadow play skills again.
I didn't even realise Game Builder Garage was releasing this week.
@El_Murcielago I think Nintendo own releases are usually at midnight.
I wonder who Notes is made by 🤔
Another week with literally nothing of note. Good job I've a healthy backlog.
Ninja Gaiden for sure! After reading many websites that are giving it a 8/10 or more, I can't wait now to put my hands on it! Never played them, so I'll go fresh, and I don't care about the Sigma versions.
Game Builder Garage - insta-download
Ninja Gaiden - when on sale considering the overall tame reviews for Switch version.
Taiko DLC? - Will look into that!
