Nintendo Download: Happy Holidays!

There’s much to be happy about for Nintendo fans this Holiday season, but not so much in this Nintendo Download.

Empty stockings

As go Nintendo Downloads, this one’s pretty… well it’s kind of meh. Okay it’s really meh. That’s probably to be expected though, given that it’s only a few days out from Christmas, and the buying season is decidedly nearing it’s close.

There are never all that many “big” games released in December as it is. Two days from Christmas? Yeah, good luck with that.

But it’s not that there are no games this week, as the Switch actually has a kind of neat looking zombie brawler called Bloody Zombies.

Have a look:

Fire Emblem Heroes Events:

  • Special Heroes: Winter’s Envoy – Some Special Heroes in wintry outfits are here to bring a splash of color to these winter days. These Special Heroes are part of a Special Heroes summoning event in the 5 ★ Focus. For new summoning events, the first time you summon, you won’t have to use Orbs! But that’s not all … these Special Heroes also appear in the new Paralogue, Winter’s Envoy, and there are some related limited-time special quests as well! This event lasts until 10:59 p.m. PT on Dec. 31.
  • Daily Special Maps – Look for Special Maps to be added daily for 11 straight days starting at 11 p.m. PT on Dec. 23! The first time you clear each of these maps, whether on Normal or Hard mode, you can receive one Orb. Clear the Daily Special Maps and earn Orbs daily! This event runs from 11 p.m. PT on Dec. 23 until 11 p.m. PT on Jan. 2. Note: Each map will be available for one week.
