Nintendo Download: Off the (Astral) Chain

Astral Chain might’ve been running under your radar, but you might want to check out what’s this week’s big Switch release.

Big releases

This is, all things considered, a monster of a week for Switch gamers. Nintendo is headlining Astral Chain, but there’s a lot more than just PlatinumGames’ latest.

Yep. that’s right, PlatinumGames. If you weren’t following Astral Chain, you might want to check it out. It’s looking like it might be a gem from the legendary action-gaming developer.

So what else is there this week? How about Spyro Reignited Trilogy? Maybe Torchlight II? What about Bubsy: Paws on Fire (don’t answer that)? Or maybe, just maybe, you’d be open to busting out your cell phone and firing up a little Mario Kart Tour.

All of the above is out now or launching this coming week. Of course, there’s more too, but those are the heavy hitters. Check out the entire listing below.
