Nintendo Download: Kirby, a Dark Dungeon, Lost Memories… and More Kirby!

It’s a very nice week indeed for Nintendo gamers as Darkest Dungeon, Lost Sphere, Double Dragon and others hit the eShop.

Finally… games!

After a few weeks of very little in the way of new titles on Nintendo machines, gamers are finally getting to dig into some new releases. This week sees both large and small game launches on the Switch and 3DS, including a few names you no doubt know.

But while most people are probably most excited to see stuff like Darkest Dungeon (which does look good), I’m pumped for an arcade classic. A part of Nintendo’s Arcade Archives program, this week we get to play a true classic in the form of Double Dragon.

And this is the arcade DD no less. That’s right, there’s no watered down NES version here. I haven’t played this version of Billy and Jimmy’s adventures in… well, let’s just say it’s been a while. So you better believe I’m going to be getting this one.

But what about you? What hits the right chord with you?

Here’s the full list of what’s new:

Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch
