Nintendo Download for 8/11/22

You Misspelled Annihilation…


Nintendo Download | Aniquilation

Well guys and gals, I hope you’re ready! Cause the Nintendo Download for 8/11/22 is packed to the gills. There’s several featured titles, some special publisher sales, digital goodies and the usual Game Guide savings as well. But first, let’s start with a game about an adorable little lamb and his cult of devoted followers.


Flock to the Lamb…


Nintendo Download | Cult of the Lamb

It’s fair to say I’ve been anticipating Cult of the Lamb for some time now. And while I won’t be the one reviewing it for the HPP site, I’m still a believer in a cute little lamb full of eldritch power. The game reminds me of The Binding of Isaac, just with more management elements thrown in for good measure. Add a wonderfully twisted aesthetic, pumping tunes and a diabolical premise, and I think you have the potential for one of the best rogue-likes in quite some time. But that’s far from all for this week’s Nintendo Download. Fans of arcade games can experience a whole variety in Arcade Paradise. Or those that prefer goofy simulation games might enjoy Two Point Campus. Last but not least, fans of adventure can try Blossom Tales II: The Minotaur Prince! Now let’s keep things going with some special publisher sales.

Both Spike Chunsoft and United Label are having sales from today until 8/17. As such, I’m gonna lump them together here and list what I believe to be the most compelling games you should check out. Here’s my list – Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair Anniversary Edition, Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony Anniversary Edition, Eldest Souls, Robotics;Notes Dash, Robotics;Notes Elite, Roki and Tails of Iron. To see all the details and included games, just click here.
