Nintendo Download: The Legendary White Wolf Returns

Another great week on the Nintendo Download brings Okami HD, Megaton Rainfall, The Dragon Ball FighterZ beta, a demo for Valkyria Chronicles 4, and more.

Brush strokes

You might have played Okami before, in its non-HD form. The game was a classic of the PS2 era, and made many a fan for itself. So much so that it spawned a sequel, and now an HD remake. Of course, this remake landed on other platforms a while ago. If you didn’t play it already though, it’s worth a look.

Also landing on Switch this week is Megaton Rainfall, a formerly VR-exclusivce title. The game sets you in the shoes of a Superman-like hero out to defeat an alien invasion. Other than that there’s quite a bit of smaller stuff this week too, and both a beta and a demo that you might be interested in.

The beta is Dragon Ball FighterZ, and the demo is Valkyria Chronicles 4 – both games that should make series’ fans happy.
