Nintendo Download: Dillon Rocks, and Rolls, in His Return

It’s a huge week for the Nintendo Switch with a trio of big game releases in Bloodstained, the Street Fighter collection, and Ikaruga. Not to be left out, the 3DS also boasts a fresh title with Dillon’s Dead Heat Breakers.

Loaded

A big week indeed this week for Nintendo fans, with plenty to like. Probably the biggest all-around launch would be the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, which includes pretty much every Street Fighter title up to IV. That’s a winner, but then there’s also the Castlevania spiritual-successor Bloodstained, and the excellent shooter Ikaruga to pick up.

Looking for something on the 3DS instead? Then you’ll be happy to know that Dillon is back. Nintendo’s western-themed armadillo returns this week in Dillon’s Dead Heat Breakers.

Here’s the full list (including a Neo Geo game):

Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch

  • Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection – Celebrate Street Fighter’s historic legacy with the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, a massive collection of 12 Street Fighter games that encompass the Street Fighter I, Street Fighter II, Street Fighter III and Street Fighter Alpha series. The Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection will be available May 29.
  • Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon – Play as Zangetsu, a demon slayer bearing a deep grudge, who must travel through perilous lands to defeat a powerful demon lurking in a dark castle. Zangetsu will meet fellow travelers along the way, who can join your journey as playable characters. Alternating to these characters with their unique abilities will unlock new paths through the treacherous stages. Your choices in recruiting these adventurers will change the difficulty of the game, and may even affect the ending.

  • Ikaruga – A rebel pilot named Shinra must battle an enemy nation using a specially designed fighter called the Ikaruga, which can alternate between two energy polarities (black or white) at the touch of a button. Bullets that are the same color as Shinra’s ship can be absorbed, while the opposite color will do damage. The Ikaruga game will be available on May 29.
