This week’s Nintendo Download is Shifty… Mr. Shifty

A very interesting, “teleportation-fueled” action title headlines the Nintendo Download this week with the Switch’s Mr. Shifty.

Post-Direct Download

Well, there’s actually a lot to like about this week’s Nintendo Download! I’ve been more than a little critical about the selection as of late, though this week is pretty heavy on the good stuff. Credit where it’s due and all that.

For starters, we’ve got Mr. Shifty, which actually looks pretty awesome for the Switch. The Jackbox Party Pack hits this week too, along with the demo for Puyo Puyo Tetris. There’s one that just might be a sleeper for the new console right there.

3DS? There are some winners there too, like Bye-Bye BoxBoy from HAL and Team Kirby Clash Deluxe. There is however, nothing posted for the Wii U, which is more or less what you should probably expect going forward.

Lots more too did post though this week, including Samurai Showdown IV from SNK. So make with the scrolling and then get to the buying/downloading.

    • BYE-BYE BOXBOY! – The epic trilogy that has taken the world of geometry by storm comes to its dramatic conclusion with the BYE-BYE BOXBOY! game, from the folks at HAL Laboratory, Inc., creators of the Kirby series. By rescuing new Qbabies, main character Qbby will receive one of four powers – Boxrocket, Bombox, Warpbox and Remotebox – that can help the boxy hero overcome obstacles in a new way. Tapping any of the Kirby series amiibo figures (sold separately) like Kirby, King Dedede, Meta Knight or Waddle Dee will permanently unlock a new colorful costume for Qbby based on that character. A free demo for all three games in the series is also available in Nintendo eShop.
    • Team Kirby Clash Deluxe – As part of the 25th anniversary celebration of the adorable Kirby franchise, this free-to-start game features four Kirby characters with different powers: Sword Hero, Hammer Lord, Beam Mage and Doctor Healmore.
