Nintendo Download for 5/27/21

Bring the Fight to Alien Scum


Nintendo Download | Earth Defense Force: World Brothers

Well guys, you know what day it is. It’s time for the Nintendo Download for 5/27/21. It’s just as well this week’s is a bit light on new content, since I’m recovering from my second covid shot. So bear with me if there’s any silly misspellings or such. This Nintendo Download does have some demo opportunities, exciting preorders, sales and a bunch of digital goodies. Let’s get started with a game I’m cautiously optimistic about.

A Nice & Calm Club


Nintendo Download | World's End Club

World’s End Club is a game I hope lives up to its potential. With elements of Danganronpa and very colorful artwork, it could be the next big adventure title. My only complaint is it comes out tomorrow, in the midst of a torrent of other great games coming this Summer. But if you have some free time, be sure to try the free demo. Speaking of demos, here’s some other activities.


  • Experience the Past, Present and Future Simultaneously – In Cris Tales, a gorgeous indie love letter to classic JRPGs, you’ll embark on a harrowing journey across the kingdoms, meeting and recruiting powerful allies to aid in the fight to stop the Time Empress. Master their abilities and Crisbell’s unique Time Magic to overcome mighty foes. Peer into the past, act in the present and watch as your choices dynamically change the future. Download the demo and pre-order today before the game’s launch on July 20!
  • Get a Taste of Defiance – Eager to try out some explosive Netherworld combat? Warm up those zombie knuckles by punching enemies in the Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny demo, available now in Nintendo eShop! Get a glimpse of the adventures, insanity and undying excitement that awaits. Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny launches on June 29 and is available for pre-order today


  • From Ninja Dog to Ninja God – Three extremely high-speed and intense ninja action games are launching in one package on Nintendo Switch with NINJA GAIDEN: Master Collection! In addition to Ryu Hayabusa, the four characters Ayane, Rachel, Momiji and Kasumi are also playable. Pair up your favorites, and switch between characters during battles for nostalgic yet timeless high-speed action. Pre-order today and look forward to heated battles with fearsome opponents when the game launches on June 10.


Now, while this Nintendo Download doesn’t have a ton of featured games, it does have some special sales.
