Well folks, today is a good day to be a Nintendo fan! Not only is the Nintendo Download for 9/22/22 full of featured titles, but they’re all really solid games, without exception. Furthermore, there’s the usual Game Guide savings, a new publisher sale, a special offer for Pikmin 3 Deluxe, digital darlings and more to check out. Let’s start with a groundbreaking new adventure from Yacht Club Games.


Burrow Deeper


Nintendo Download | Shovel Knight Dig

As a fan of the series, I’m really happy with Shovel Knight Dig. It’s a near perfect marriage between platforming mechanics and rogue-like challenge, and it feels entirely like a Shovel Knight game. If you want proof, please check out HPP’s review of the game. But that’s far from all for the featured titles! You can also pick up Life is Strange Arcadia Bay Collection, or break the fourth wall with OneShot: World Machine Edition. If you prefer pumping tunes, you can try the Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythm Festival. Last but not least, fans of darling adventures with heart can finally check out Tunic on Nintendo Switch very soon! Oh and if you like discounts on games, you can purchase Pikmin 3 Deluxe for 30% off in the eShop or My Nintendo Store, just by snagging it before 9/25. That’s a great start, but let’s continue with a special publisher sale.
