Nintendo Download for 5/6/21

Nintendo Download, Tako Edition


Nintendo Download | Save me Mr Tako DE

Well folks, here it is – the Nintendo Download for 5/6/21. I wish I could rave about how many games are hiding within, but this is a bit of a short week. There’s only one featured title, plus the usual sales and digital goodies. So let’s start by grabbing our skateboards and doing some fancy tricks.

I Hope You Like Boarding


Nintendo Download | Skate City

I know some people absolutely love skateboarding games. I’ve even enjoyed a couple myself. But I tend to prefer the ones that eschew realism for something quirky. And Skate City is decidedly not quirky. It’s pretty much a realistic skate sim, letting you do tons of tricks and customize your setup. There’s even an Endless Skate mode if you just want to screw around. It might be fun, but I’m still eagerly awaiting the madness of Skatebird on Switch. But that’s not all for this Nintendo Download. Now let’s check out some promising sales.

Shoot ‘Em Up


Nintendo Download | Raiden IV x Mikado

First up, here’s some games for those sitting in the cheap seats. If you want to check out a really cool looking crime story, try Crime Opera: The Butterfly Effect for $7.99. To take a chance on a fun looking platformer, there’s Moon Raider for $6.99. To explore a crazy Lovecraftian world, try Gibbous – A Cthulhu Adventure for $5.99. For a rogue that might be worth a shot, try Collapsed for $9.75. Lastly, for a sadistic yet humorous puzzle game, try REZ PLZ for only $7.49.
