Nintendo Download for 8/19/21

Let’s Get Brawling With the Nintendo Download


Nintendo Download | Mayhem Brawler

While huge Nintendo Downloads can be exciting, sometimes I prefer the more laid back ones. Such as the Nintendo Download for 8/19/21. This one is a bit more compact and it even includes 3 really different featured titles. Besides that, other highlights are a trial for another game, more fun in a mobile game, plus the usual goodies. Let’s start with a game I never thought I’d see on a Nintendo console.

Bounty Claimed


Nintendo Download | King's Bounty II

King’s Bounty is one of those series I typically associate with PC gaming. So the fact King’s Bounty II is now on Switch strikes me as somewhat remarkable. For those that love immersive and tactical fantasy, I’d check it out. If you’re more of a puzzle platformer fan, you have to discover Hoa. It’s lush, beautiful and haunting. Lastly, if you enjoy adventure but want a new twist, try Arietta of Spirits. It reminds me of SNES Zelda games, and looks quite charming. Next, let’s continue this Nintendo Download with some special events.

  • Unite, Fight and Survive With a Free* Test Drive! – Minecraft Dungeons Hero Edition sends you and up to three of your friends through action-packed, treasure-stuffed dungeons on a quest to take down the evil Arch-Illager. Personalize your character, then fight up close with melee attacks, play it safe with ranged attacks or suit up in heavy armor and plow through mobs as a tank! Until 11:59 p.m. PT on Aug. 24, Nintendo Switch Online members will be able to try out the full game for free.
  • Today … There Is Quite a Bit To Report – Here, here! Gather round all ye fans of the Fire Emblem Heroes game* for smart devices. Let’s have three cheers for the latest Heroes who were selected in the Choose Your Legends: Round 5 event. Congratulations are due to Gatekeeper: Nothing to Report, Marth: Prince of Light, Marianne: Serene Adherent, Eirika: Pledged Restorer and Pelleas: Ashnard’s Orphan. These brave victors will now appear in the New Heroes: Keepers of Faith summoning event thanks to your vote of confidence! You’ll also find new story maps in Book V, Chapter 10: Howling Descent, as well as limited-time quests and a Log-In Bonus that’ll let you obtain up to 13 Orbs.
