Nintendo Download for 6/2/22

Racing Into June


Nintendo Download | Gravitar: Recharged

Well folks, June is here, and the Nintendo Download for 6/2/22 is packed with good stuff. Not only does this week feature multiple featured titles, but there’s also a special franchise sale on top of the usual Game Guide savings, plus the typical digital games. So let’s start with a classic game coming to the Nintendo Switch.


The Force Returns


Nintendo Download | Knights of the Old Republic II

It’s pretty well established that while I enjoy Star Wars, I’m far from a fanboy. So I’ve only ever played one or two video games from the series games back in the SNES era. But even I have to admit that Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords looks pretty cool. And in a few short days, it will be on the Nintendo Switch! But that’s not the only featured title this week. We also have chomp chomp madness in the Pac-Man Museum+. Or you can be a crook in Card Shark. If you prefer being artistic and getting caught up in memories, try Behind the Frame: The Finest Scenery. Lastly, if you’re interested in the upcoming Mario Strikers game, you can try it free starting soon with Mario Strikers: Battle League First Kick. That will be available from this coming Friday until Sunday. Now, let’s continue the Nintendo Download with a sale from one of my favorite franchises!


Turn Back the Clock


Nintendo Download | LOOPERS

Even as someone that’s been a Shantae fan for a while now, it’s hard for me to believe the series has been around for 20 years. In honor of that milestone, Shantae is having a 20th anniversary sale from today until 6/16. So if you haven’t gotten into the series yet, now you can get up to 50% off these great titles. Those include the original Shantae, Risky’s Revenge, Pirate’s Curse and Seven Sirens. But a quick word to the wise. If you pick up Half-Genie Hero, get the Ultimate Edition. Only because the DLC in that particular adventure was far more enjoyable than just the base experience alone.
