Nintendo Download: It’s Battle Royale Time!

This E3 week has been huge for Nintendo. Not only did they announce a brand new Smash at the show, but a few big titles hit the eShop.

Smashing!

There’s not much to dislike about this week’s Nintendo Download. The only thing might be that most of the stuff is out already, so this is pretty much just a list of what’s already landed. But what a list it is.

I’m not into Fortnight, but to have it on the Switch and have it be a stealth launch is massive. On top of that, Fallout Shelter joined it, sneaking onto the console right after the Bethesda briefing. But that’s not all this week, as Shaq Fu arrived along with Hollow Knight, LEGO The Incredibles and more.

Have a look…
