Nintendo Download: Pew! Pew! Pew!

Season 6 of Fortnite hits the Switch this week, along with FIFA 19, Mega Man 11, Dragon Ball FighterZ and lots more.

The obsession begins again

Maybe that’s a poor subheading. Basically, the obsession never ended. Fortnite is a monster, that seems to devour players’ free time on a never-ending basis. Season 6 however, should ensure that anyone who’s stopped playing will be back to see what’s new.

If you are not a fan of the online game of the moment though, you’re also in for a solid week on the Download. That’s because this week sees the arrival of FIFA 19, the long awaited Mega Man 11 (Oct 2nd), the first round of Sega Ages games, The Escapists, and plenty more to choose from.

All in all, there’s a little something for every taste.
