Nintendo Download: Join Gris, Henry and an Alien on Three Different Journeys

After an explosive week on the Nintendo Download, things are a little more subdued. Though there are still a few goodies.

Down time

Yes, it’s a down week on the Nintendo Download, the first in a little while. Nevertheless, while there’s nothing the caliber of a Smash Bros, there are a few titles worth talking about.

For starters, there’s Gris. This indie game has been well-received, and promises an artistic adventure. Then there’s Firewatch, a gem of an indie from a few years back.

And finally, there are some very nice classic games hitting this week as well. Those include a trio of new NES titles for online subscribers, a collection of Atari games, and the arcade version of Double Dragon II (already out).

So not too bad when you consider how late we’re getting into the season. Check out the full list below.

Firewatch gets lost in the wild

  • GRIS: Gris is a hopeful young girl lost in her own world, dealing with a painful experience in her life.

  • Quarantine Circular: A group of scientists interrogate an alien discovered at the heart of a global pandemic. Work with your team, make decisions, and uncover the alien’s true intentions. Inspired by classic adventure games and modern dialogue systems, Bithell Games has created another single-session story which respects your time and intelligence.
  • Firewatch: The year is 1989. You are a man named Henry who has retreated from your messy life to work as a fire lookout in the Wyoming wilderness. Perched high atop a mountain, it’s your job to look for smoke and keep the wilderness safe. Your supervisor, a woman named Delilah, is your only contact with the world you’ve left behind. When something strange draws you out of your lookout tower and into the world, you’ll explore a wild and unknown environment, facing questions and making choices that can build or destroy the only meaningful relationship you have. The Firewatch game is available Dec. 17.
  • Fitness Boxing – Demo Version – Get off the couch and get moving with fun, boxing-based rhythmic exercises set to the instrumental beats of songs by popular artists.
