A Fiery Nintendo Download for February
Welcome to the Nintendo Download for 2/3/22! The first one in February, or any month, is always especially exciting. It helps set the tone for the rests of the month’s coverage, after all. And if we’re going by today’s Nintendo Download, this month will be rad. A couple really eclectic featured titles start things out, then a celebration of a mobile darling, followed by the usual sales and digital goodies to check out. But let’s start by attaining Gnarvana.
I will readily admit I’m not usually a fan of skateboarding games. I just don’t normally see the appeal of doing trick after trick just to get points, like some trained animal. But OlliOlli World looks to mix things up in fascinating ways. Sure, you’ll be skateboarding, but you’ll also be exploring a vast and strange world in your quest to meet the skate gods. Go on quests, make weird friends and enjoy the zen. The other featured title this week is utterly different. It trades zen for zombies, and it’s sure to put a smile on the faces of survival horror fans. It’s none other than Dying Light 2 Stay Human – Cloud Version. Though I’m not a fan of the cloud part, if you enjoy fighting hordes of zombies solo or with friends, I’d check it out. Next up, the Nintendo Download celebrates an anniversary with a mobile game.
- A Heroic Five Years – Huzzah! It’s time to celebrate five years of the Fire Emblem Heroes game for smart devices! To commemorate this momentous occasion, you’ll be able to partake in a series of events, including a 5th Anniversary Hero Fest summoning event. In another 5th Anniversary Special Hero summoning event, you’ll be guaranteed a five-star Special Hero. This is just the start of the festivities, as you can also partake in new anniversary-themed quests, Tempest Trials+ and Grand Hero Battles, as well as a Log-In Bonus that’ll let you obtain up to 10 Orbs.
