Nintendo Download for 6/23/22

Gotta Go Fast


Nintendo Download | Sonic Origins

On the heels of yesterday’s Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Direct, it’s time for another Nintendo Download! Though the Nintendo Download for 6/23/22 doesn’t have anything for Xenoblade fans, it is packed with featured titles including some really promising games. Besides that there’s also the typical Game Guide sales and digital gaming. So let’s start with the latest musou edition of Fire Emblem.


Burning Spirit


Nintendo Download | FE Warriors: Three Hopes

I love me some Fire Emblem, but I have mixed feelings about musou games. I got really, really hyped for Hyrule Warriors the first time around, and then barely touched the game. So I’m not sure if I’ll jump on the Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes train, but that doesn’t mean you all shouldn’t. It features beautiful art, intrigue, returning heroes and three separate campaigns. So if you don’t mind the grind and fighting hordes of foes, I’d check it out tomorrow (or download the free demo today). If you prefer using your noggin to solve gruesome murders, then check out AI: THE SOMNIUM FILES – nirvanA Initiative. Or if you prefer old school done new school, try Sonic: Origins and the Capcom Fighting Collection. Last but not least, if you enjoy cute and clever puzzle platformers, I’d check out ElecHead. Now let’s continue the Nintendo Download with some sales.


Zap Those Prices Down

First some sales for those in the cheap seats. If you enjoy colorful and unique looking Metroidvanias, check out 8Doors: Arum’s Afterlife Adventure for half off at $9.99. Or if you prefer clever puzzles, try Timelie for $9.99. For something weird, there’s BATS: Bloodsucker Anti-Terror Squad for $7.49. To experience far future mayhem, try Foreclosed for only $5.99. Finally, for a cool looking miniature adventure, try Stonefly for $9.99.


Don’t Sleep On This

Skate into bliss in OlliOlli World for $19.99. Lastly, fans of beautiful and sad Metroidvanias should try Ender Lilies for $17.49. Next up, we’ll cover some new digital games worth a look.


Retro Reshrined
