Nintendo Download for 5/12/22

Nintendo Download: Extra Booty Edition


Nintendo Download | Seven Pirates H Launch

Last week I complained about how that Nintendo Download was a bit lacking in content. But like usual, the Nintendo Download after any sort of Nintendo presentation is always fantastic. And since the Nintendo Download for 5/12/22 happened after the Indie World Showcase, you can bet your butts this one is a lot more interesting! There’s several new featured titles, a quirky demo, a special publisher sale and more to check out. Let’s start with some games that may look familiar to those of you who watched the Indie World Showcase.


Play That Funky Music


Nintendo Download | Soundfall

Soundfall is one of those games I actually was familiar with before the Indie World Showcase. It’s a looter shooter mixed with a rhythm game. And while that may sound intimidating, the game aesthetic is gorgeous, and the concept is certainly unique. If you want a featured title that’s a bit more basic, you can manage traffic in Mini Motorways. Or for an epic RPG, there’s OPUS: Echo of Starsong – Full Bloom. And to swing through the trees, there’s always Gibbon: Beyond the Trees. Not a bad start to today’s Nintendo Download, eh? There’s also a demo available for Devolver’s Card Shark, if you want to learn to cheat like a master. Next let’s check out a special publisher sale.


Swing Through the Sales

In honor of the month of May, Bandai Namco is having a special AniMay sale until 5/18. This offers some huge discounts on games built around popular anime franchises. While there’s not a ton of included titles, I’m still going to help narrow down the top contenders. Those are the following – Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition, Dragon Ball Fighterz, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, My Hero One’s Justice, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy, Ni no Kuni, Ni no Kuni II, One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 and Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Deluxe Edition.

And there you all have it. A much better Nintendo Download than last week, I think. Thanks as usual for tuning into HPP for your weekly Download, and be sure to check back again next week!
