Nintendo Download: Why Did Toki Tori Cross the Road?

With loan-fighting princesses and heroic chickens, this week’s Nintendo Download is a little odd. Check out Toki Tori, the Penny-Punching Princess and more.

Buk-buk-buk

What is Toki Tori? Well, it’s all about a chicken. A very heroic chicken, mind you. Starring in a puzzle game freshly arrived for the Nintendo Switch, this birdie is one of the headliners this week for the Nintendo Download. The other? It’s Penny-Punching Princess, which sounds a lot more interesting than it’s name.

In the game, you star as the title royal, who’s out to knock over some loan-making dragons. Her goal? To save her capitalistic kingdom from endless debt. No really, that’s it. And it actually sounds pretty fun since it’s an isometric beat’em up.

Check out the latest for Nintendo’s family of platforms below.
