And Now For Something Sane
Some days it feels like the world has gone crazy. Which is why I’m always thankful for the positive distraction of videogames. With that in mind, the Nintendo Download for 2/24/22 has some great featured titles to keep our minds elsewhere. It also has a new popular streaming app coming to Nintendo Switch, as well as the typical sales and digital games. Let’s start with the latest in a beloved RPG series.
Craft Something Magical
By this point there’s enough Atelier games that most of them can found in trilogy collections. And yet I still haven’t played a one of them, though that will likely change soon. Regardless, fans of the series can soon enjoy another adventure in Atelier Sophie 2. Like most games in the series, it mixes turn-based battles with item synthesis and mellow storytelling. But that’s not all for featured titles. You can also explore an arctic realm with a furry friend in Never Alone: Arctic Collection. Enjoy this charming puzzle platformer, and search for the source of an eternal blizzard. Better yet, this version includes the Foxtales DLC for no additional cost. Lastly, adventure in a post apocalyptic watery realm in FAR: Changing Tides. Think Water World, but actually good. Next up, the Nintendo Download has an announcement for fans of anime.
I don’t watch much anime myself, but I realize I’m in the stark minority. So if you wanted a reason to mix your anime and Nintendo Switch, you’re now in luck. The Crunchyroll app has made it to the Nintendo Switch! Enjoy over 1000 shows, including Crunchyroll originals, for absolutely free. Sounds like a good deal to me. Next, let’s continue the Nintendo Download with some sales.
