Download Time Is Here Again
I don’t know about you all, but my brain still thinks it’s E3. That was a whirlwind of coverage, especially Nintendo’s amazing presentation. And while today’s Nintendo Download for 6/17/21 can’t compete with that level of awesome, it’ll do its best. There’s a couple amazing featured titles, an extra special sale and the usual digital fun. Let’s start with a game that inexplicably is only getting a digital release.
Survive the Rain of Death
ENDER LILIES: Quietus of the Knights is a lush and emotional story with stunning artwork. And best of all, it’s also a Metroidvania. Which pretty much makes it one of my most anticipated titles of the year. Explore a kingdom destroyed by the Rain of Death, and turn powerful foes into strong allies. And be sure to stay tuned for my upcoming review of the game. The next game is also a fun addition to the Switch catalogue. Strange Brigade has you team up with allies to fight Egyptian monsters. It’s crazy and reminds me of movies from the 90’s, but it also looks pretty fun. Next up, a couple of special promotions from Nintendo.
- Hurt Me Plenty – You pulled humanity back from the edge of extinction, but it came at a cost. Slaying the Kahn Maykr left an imbalance of power in the cosmos that threatens all of creation. Now you must rise and set things right. Raze hell in the first campaign expansion for DOOM Eternal, The Ancient Gods – Part One. Deeper and more challenging combat awaits as you eliminate Hell’s newest threats in demon-infested ruins and rain-swept terrain.
