Let’s Get Physical
Welcome to the first Nintendo Download of February! This one starts off with two featured titles, some My Nintendo deals, sales, digital goodies and more. There’s a good mix of genres and tastes this time. So let’s not waste any more words, and jump right into some games for this week!
Blue Fire is one of those games that’s been on my radar for a little while. Mostly cause it’s an indie with a unique visual style. In it, you explore the vast world of Penumbra, fighting dangerous foes and doing feats of platforming. But that’s not the only featured title this week. This next game is another I’ve been curious about for a while. Since I demoed it, in fact. Haven is another distinct indie vision, with lush art, interesting combat and a fascinating premise. Explore the boundaries of love and the mysteries of your planet. Next up on this Nintendo Download, let’s talk about some new My Nintendo deals.
- A Golden Opportunity – For a limited time, you can earn up to 600 My Nintendo Gold Points – twice the normal amount – when you purchase select digital games through Nintendo eShop, Nintendo.com (where available) or participating retailers.* Eligible games include Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, among others!
