A Monstrous Nintendo Download
Whoo boy, it’s a hot one today! And I don’t just mean the weather. The Nintendo Download for 6/24/21 is the one I’ve been waiting for all month. It’s packed with featured titles, promotions, demos, sales and digital fun time. So find a comfortable seat, turn on the AC and get ready to check out a ton of games with us.
Golf Never Looked So Fun
First off, the only golf game I’ve ever been interested in comes out tomorrow. That’s none other that Mario Golf: Super Rush. It looks outstanding and crazy, with that trademark Mario charm. Add a little 4 player multiplayer, tons of modes and customization and you have a winner. The next featured title is no less exciting, it just appeals to a different crowd. Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny is the latest in the mad tactical RPG series. Play as a heroic (maybe?) zombie, Zed, on his quest of defeating the God of Destruction. Plus, it’s the first game in the beloved series with 3D visuals. You can check that out in a few more days. Next, if you’re curious how a game that looks like a romance VN is somehow instead psychological horror, you’ll love Doki Doki Literature Club Plus! Or if you prefer classic games, try Legend of Mana. Or to play the coolest mobile game I’ve ever tried on a console, try Sky: Children of the Light. Next, stay tuned for some special promotions.
