Get Blasting With The Nintendo Download for 7/1/21
Well folks, I can officially say it’s Summer. That’s why the sun is so eagerly trying to murder me. But the good news is, the Nintendo Download for 7/1/21 is also pretty hot. There’s featured titles, lots of demos, tons of events and the usual sales and digital grab bag. So lets get into the meat of things, shall we?
Let’s Get Murdery
I had the fortune to hear about the first remade Silver Case at PAX West, and even got to meet Suda himself. It was a lot of fun, and the edgy murder mystery looks to have a lot of potential. So now it’s exciting we’re getting another entry in The Silver Case 2425. Enjoy this grim puzzle game from three different perspectives and find out whodunnit. Next up, fans of the storied Ys series that own a Switch have reason to cheer. Ys IX: Monstrum Nox is finally making the Switch quite soon. Use your curse to exorcise monsters and explore a vast city. Now buckle up and get ready for a bunch of events and demos worth checking out.
