Nintendo Download | Redout: Space Assault

Well folks, you know what day it is. Which means it’s time for another Nintendo Download! This week only has one featured title, but it’s one I’ve spent nearly a month with already. There’s also some new DLC coming to a variety of games, sales on some wonderful adventures and the usual digital fare. Let’s begin with a jaunt to Terraphage.

Have Harpoon, Will Teleport


Nintendo Download | Olija

Olija is one of those games that makes me thankful for Devolver Digital. I knew it was for me the moment I saw the first trailer, which is why I decided to review the game. It involves mystery, beautiful women, dangerous exploration and hideous monstrosities. It’s a lot of fun, and the centerpiece to the action is your teleporting harpoon. Think Mjolnir but in spear form, and you’re on the right track. If any of that sounds good to you, you can officially pick Olija up starting today. But that’s not all for this Nintendo Download. Keep on reading for new DLC coming to a bunch of games.

For our first batch of sales this Nintendo Download, we have 5 great options. If you’re a fan of SHMUPs and rogue, you might enjoy Project Starship X for only $7.99. If you’re a fan of big discounts on bundles, Digerati has a couple really promising options. One is the Indie Darling Bundle Vol. 3, which includes such great games as Omega Strike and Nefarious for only $7.56. The other Digerati option worth mention is the Pixel Art Bundle Vol. 1. It has Bleed and Slain plus one more, and it’s only $5.69. Both those are normally upwards of $40, so I’d jump if you’re interested in any of the Digerati games I mentioned.
