Nintendo Download for 8/18/22

Run Into a Jam Packed Nintendo Download


Nintendo Download | Marmoset

I’m starting to notice a trend. The Nintendo Downloads that happen later in the month are usually the more exciting ones. Which is definitely the case for the Nintendo Download for 8/18/22! Not only does it have some really cool featured titles, it has a couple special sales, various promotions and the usual digital fanfare. First, let’s cover those featured titles.


What a Great Purgatory!


Nintendo Download | Cursed to Golf

Today’s first game is one I’ve been excited about for a while, despite not loving the sport it revolves around. That game is called Cursed to Golf, and it’s all about golfing your way out of purgatory. It’s a crazy rogue adventure with great artwork, angry spirits and a ton of factors to mix things up. On the topic of sports, you might also be interested in Little League World Series Baseball 2022. Normally I wouldn’t cover a generic sports title like this, but it at least features a cute art style, so I can give it a pass. Last up is a really fascinating looking game. It’s called RPG Time: The Legend of Wright. It’s a handcrafted adventure where you can literally change the story by tweaking key elements, with a really darling visual aesthetic. While those are all the featured titles this week, we have more games to cover.

Firstly, you can try out a free Game Trial for Pokkén Tournament DX until August 31st. If you decide to purchase it before then, you’ll even save 30% off the title. You can also earn double My Nintendo Gold Points by pre-purchasing the digital version of Splatoon 3 until September 30th. Or if you’re so inclined, you can preorder Ooblets. Lastly, if you play Fire Emblem Heroes, you can take advantage of the Choose Your Legends event. Now let’s continue the Nintendo Download with some special sales.


Shred Some Prices

If you’re a big Bethesda fan, you can take advantage of the QuakeCon sales until August 22nd. Those include some robust discounts on games like DOOM, DOOM 64, Wolfenstein II, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, QUAKE and more. But that’s not all for special sales this week. Capcom also has big savings to enjoy from today until August 28th. There’s significantly more games on sale, so I won’t list all of them. But here’s some highlights – Ace Attorney Turnabout Collection, The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, Mega Man 11, Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection, Okami HD, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy, Resident Evil Revelations and Revelations 2 and Shinsekai Into the Depths.

If you prefer games with a focus on story, there’s a few options – Irresistible Mistakes, My Divorce Story and We Are OFK.

RPG fans might try Light Fairytale Episode 2, while SHMUP fans can check out Strike Buster Prototype. If you prefer card games, I’d recommend Shadowverse: Champion’s Battle Legendary Edition.
