Fresh from yesterday’s Nintendo Direct Mini, this week’s Download sees a few new games land. Those include Final Fantasy, and a title about picking the perfect dog.
Pretty easily the headline game this week, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition is finally here. So if you were looking to finish out your summer vacation (such as it is) with a little long-form gaming, this could be your game.
But if you’re not into Final Fantasy, there’s still a bunch of stuff to occupy you this week. Game releases include Jump Force Deluxe Edition, Immortal Realms, MX vs ATV, Witcheye, moon, and a surprise appearance by none other than Commander Keen. That’s a legitimate shock there.
There’s a bunch more of course, along with a game called Best Friend Forever. What’s that about? Well, it’s a dating sim basically, but one where you also move to a new city and adopt a dog. It’s complicated.
