Nintendo Download for 7/14/22

Strange New World


Nintendo Download | XEL

So there’s good news and bad news for the Nintendo Download for 7/14/22. The good news is, if you have an Expansion Pack membership, there’s several featured titles today. The bad news is, everybody else only gets a couple. But there’s more games besides those, including the usual Game Guide sales and a hefty digital roster. So let’s start with a couple titles everybody can enjoy.


Keep On Living


Nintendo Download | Endling

The end of any species is a tragic event, but it’s also a really unusual place to start a videogame. Endling – Extinction is Forever chronicles the tale of a mother fox and her cubs, last of their kind. It’s an emotional tale with distinctive artwork that is sure to catch your attention, especially after HPP reviews the game. The other main featured title is called XEL. Imagine a Zelda game where you don’t know what you’re supposed to do, or who you are. That’s the premise in a nutshell, as you awaken on a strange alien planet. You’ll hack and slash your way through dungeons crawling with robots and alien species and discover that you’re stuck in some endless cycle. Can you break free and recover your memories? Definitely a fascinating premise. Next up, some games you can only play if you have an Expansion Pack membership.

It’s a good week to have the Expansion Pack. Not only do you get Pokémon Puzzle League that you can play against the AI or friends online, but there’s several Sega Genesis titles. Those include the likes of Mega Man: The Wily Wars, Comix Zone, Zero Wing and Target Earth. So if you’re a longtime Nintendo fanboy looking to check out some Sega classics, the time is now. Next up, the Nintendo Download continues with some Game Guide savings.
