Nintendo Download for 5/19/22

Taking It In Stride


Nintendo Download | Wolfstride

Well folks, I’m amazed I’m writing this at all today. I’m fighting a nasty head cold and a fever, but I also didn’t want to leave anybody in the lurch. Thankfully, today’s Nintendo Download for 5/19/22 is mercifully short and sweet, with only a couple featured titles, a new Expansion Pack game and the usual goodies. Let’s start with a utterly insane genre hybrid that comes to Switch today.


Growing New Friends


Nintendo Download | DEADCRAFT

DEADCRAFT had my attention from the beginning. I love the idea of this post-apocalyptic world, a zombie/human hybrid hero and a mixture of action and crafting. When you throw in attractive artwork and a lot of content, this is a game a lot of folks will want to check out. Though some may want to wait for the inevitable physical version later on. The other featured title today is Touken Ranbu Warriors. It’s a 3D action game from Koei Tecmo with tons of heroes and frenetic combat. Finally, if you have the Expansion Pack, then tomorrow you can play Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.


Fly Into Savings

Since there’s no noteworthy publisher sales this week, we’re moving on directly to the Game Guide sales. If you love Zelda-styled adventures that make you think, try Dungeons of Dreadrock for $5. For something truly nuts, you can get Flippin Kaktus for only $9.95. For a bunch of pew pew, try SHMUP MANIA for a mere $2.50. Or for painful ice puzzles, you can Slap the Rocks for $3.99. And for a cute throwback, look no further than Dandy & Randy DX for $5.59.


Don’t Run Away

And that’s it for this week’s Nintendo Download. Short and sweet, I know, but hopefully you found something new worth checking out. Thanks for tuning into HPP, and now if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go rest.
