Nintendo Download for 1/21/21

Time For the Nintendo Download to Get Dark

Nintendo Download | Cyber Shadow

Well guys, it’s a dreary day where I live. Which kind of makes the perfect setting for today’s Nintendo Download. Cause the featured titles today are all about death, violence and a twinge of mystery. Besides those, there’s also the typical sales and the usual digital bag full of goodies. Let’s start with one game coming out soon that I’m quite excited about.

Cloudy With a Chance of Murder

Nintendo Download | Hitman 3 Cloud Version

I had been getting snippets of news about Cyber Shadow before I knew exactly what it was. Then, when I heard that Yacht Club Games was publishing the game, my interest truly got piqued. And after playing the game several hours, let me tell you – my hype was not in vain. Cyber Shadow may not be developed by the Shovel Knight team, but their attention to detail shines all throughout this dark and mysterious adventure. Sure, it looks like Ninja Gaiden, but it has many elements from other classics as well. Though I’m reviewing the Steam version, I enjoyed it so much I double dipped to own it on Switch as well. If you’re similarly inclined, purchasing the game before the release date of the 25th lets you get it for 25% off. But if you’re still not convinced, stay tuned for my upcoming review of Cyber Shadow once it’s officially out. The other featured game isn’t one I’m personally that interested in, but it’s still kind of novel. Hitman 3 has come to the Switch in the Cloud Version. So if you’ve been hankering to slay some marks in odd and devious ways, now you can on Switch. Next up, let’s continue the Nintendo Download with some good sales.
