Nintendo Download: Once Upon a Block…

It was going to be tough to top last week’s Nintendo Download. Yep. Tough. Just keep that in mind as you read through this week’s.

It’s a blocky world

Now, to be fair, Telltale’s Minecraft: Story Mode – The Complete Adventure is a decent title. It’s a pretty big game in terms of impact, and it did get some acclaim when it released earlier this year. Here’s the thing though – it’s pretty much all there is this week for Nintendo in terms of new announcements.

If you recall though, things aren’t all that bad. Last week touted Sonic Mania, but the game didn’t actually hit till this past Tuesday. So it’s kind of a “this week” game. Same goes for the demo of Rayman, which also arrived this week. So it’s not actually a bad period at all for the Switch (or Nintendo in general). It just kind of looks that way on paper.

We do get a new Neo Geo game though, can’t forget that. Here’s what’s new:

Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch

  • Minecraft: Story Mode – The Complete Adventure – Embark on a perilous quest across the Overworld, to the End and beyond. With a team of friends at your side, and a troubled land in need of heroes, your decisions – what you say and do – drive the story around you, so choose wisely! The Minecraft: Story Mode – The Complete Adventure game includes all five episodes of Season One and all three episodes of the Adventure Pass. The game will be available on Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch on Aug. 22.
