July Is Heating Up in the Nintendo Download for 7/22/21!
It’s fitting that as July wraps up, the Nintendo Download goes big. While it’s true there’s another Nintendo Download coming next week, the Nintendo Download for 7/22/21 is amazingly busy. Not only is there a handful of featured titles, there’s new SNES games available on Nintendo Switch Online, a demo, sales and the usual fun stuff. But let’s begin with a sequel that’s been nearly two decades in the making.
The World Hasn’t Ended Yet
Let’s just be honest – most of us had given up hope of The World Ends With You ever getting a proper sequel. I know I had, and wrote a big, dramatic editorial at my previous website. Cause at the time, all signs pointed to Square Enix giving up on the series. Which is why it’s so crazy that NEO: TWEWY is gonna release next week! While most fans understandably are cautious about getting too excited about it, I’m trying to stay optimistic. Here’s hoping it’s worth the very, very long wait. Another game fans were flabbergasted is coming West is The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles. Enjoy courtroom battles in Victorian London and Japan, all buttressed by gorgeous artwork. Or if you prefer a new way to play a classic series, you might wanna try Pokémon UNITE for free. For those that love defeating hordes of opponents, there’s Samurai Warriors 5. And for something very different, you can check out Last Stop. Next up, let’s take a gander at some new games coming to Nintendo Switch Online.
- Claymates – Take on the role of Clayton, son of Professor Putty. Your father has made a breakthrough, and with the serum he’s created, living creatures can be turned into clay! You will face many dangers, but you have the ability to transform into five different animals. You’ll need them all to run, jump, fly, swim and climb your way past the obstacles in your path! Claymates will be available on July 28.
- Jelly Boy – In this platforming game originally released exclusively in Europe in 1995, you are Jelly Boy, candy given the spark of life by the power of lightning. You’ve come to life knowing one thing: You have to escape the candy factory. To get out, you’ll need to collect puzzle pieces and survive the enemy heavies trying to stop you. You’re sure to need all your wits, skills and shape-changing powers to make it through this wacky adventure. Jelly Boy will be available on July 28.
- Bombuzal – Strategically detonate every bomb in each level while leaving yourself a safe place to stand when the dust settles. In this puzzle game, you’ll have to be quick, because time is short. Just make sure you remember to take the size of each explosion into account, or it could blow a hole in all your careful planning. Good luck, and have a blast! Bombuzal will be available on July 28.
Waifu Make Everything Better
What’s that, not enough games yet? How about a demo opportunity?
- Feeling Trapped? Need Somewhere To Vent? – Prepare your spaceship for departure, but beware! One or more random players among the Crew are planning your destruction. Sus out Impostors in the full version of the Among Us game for the Nintendo Switch system, available for Nintendo Switch Online members to try until July 27 at 11:59 p.m. PT. Among Us will also be available to purchase for 30% off until Aug. 1 at 11:59 p.m. PT. Best of luck pretending to do your tasks, “Crewmate.”
