Nintendo Download for 5/26/22

Order From Chaos


Nintendo Download | Jade Order

Well folks, it’s time for the last Nintendo Download of May, the Nintendo Download for 5/26/22. This one is a bit more interesting than last week’s. Also different from last week is the fact I’m not crippled by a head cold anymore, so hopefully this will be an entertaining writeup. There’s a couple very quirky animal themed games, a speedy pre-order, a demo and the usual stuff worth checking out. Let’s start with an animal mascot I had no familiarity with prior to playing the game for review.


Hop Into Adventure


Nintendo Download | Kao the Kangaroo

I know there was a time where everyone was trying to outdo Nintendo with animal mascots. From Crash Bandicoot to Spyro, there were all sorts of goofy characters. But somehow I must have missed the original Kao the Kangaroo. Luckily, it’s getting a new entry coming very soon to all modern consoles, including the Switch. If you’re in the mood for a very different sort of animal, you might enjoy My Little Pony: A Maretime Bay Adventure. Or if you want to pre-order something, Sonic Origins is coming in late June. Finally, if you enjoy demoing games before you decide to buy them, you can try strange underwater adventure SILT starting today.
