Nintendo Download for 1/20/22

Black and White and Download All Over


Nintendo Download | The Longest Road on Earth

Time for the Nintendo Download for 1/20/22! This week only has a small handful of new featured titles, but it makes up for it with more Expansion Pack games to try. There’s also the usual sales and digital games to check out this week. So let’s start things off with golf and babies.




Nintendo Download | RPGolf Legends

I’m generally the last person to get excited about golf in any capacity. But when you add RPG mechanics to anything, that thing becomes better. Thus we have RPGolf Legends. Meaning you can go on quests, level up and empower your heroic golfer with different skills. That actually sounds pretty fun. The other featured title this week is even weirder. It’s called Baby Storm, and it has you wrangling a bunch of rowdy kindergartners. Keep the kids happy and under control to boost your combo, and play with up to 3 other players. Might be fun, unless you take care of children in real life, in which case it’s probably going to give you PTSD. Next up, let’s continue the Nintendo Download with something new coming to the Switch Online via the Expansion Pack.

  • Banjo-Kazooie – Launching today, experience a magical adventure with an unlikely duo when the Nintendo 64 game Banjo-Kazooie Beak Bombs its way onto Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo 64 – Nintendo Switch Online library. Join a honey bear named Banjo and a breegull named Kazooie as they fly, swim and fire eggs across a multitude of wild locales on their mission to rescue Banjo’s sister Tooty from the wicked witch Gruntilda in this action game. Originally released in 1998, this marks the first time this title has appeared on a Nintendo system in over 20 years – guh-huh! Banjo-Kazooie is available starting today for players with a Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership.
  • Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain – Celebrate Brain Teaser Month and take on a series of brain-buzzing activities – like finding the hidden phrase in this game description – with this multiplayer* party game that anyone can play! Flex your big brain power across a variety of challenges in five different categories. You’ll solve picture and number puzzles, test your memory and have a blast as you power up your Big Brain Brawn Score. Go brain-to-brain with friends and family in four-player matches or see how you stack up to brainiacs around the world in Ghost Clash mode. Everyone can play together at varying difficulties, so a kid can hold their own against an adult in this clash of mental marvels! Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain is now available for purchase.
