Nintendo Download: Pick a Card, Any Card!

The Nintendo Download presents its most lackluster week yet in 2019. Though, if you like roguelikes and card games, there’s something for you.

Slim pickings

There is not a lot to like about this week’s Nintendo Download. That’s to be expected of course, since it’s E3 time, and that usually signals a steep drop in new game releases. Don’t worry, it won’t last, but for now this is what we’ve got.

The headliner this week is Slay the Spire. It’s a collectible card game crossed with a roguelike. Yeah, you’re forgiven if you haven’t heard of it. And yes, that’s the main draw, and the rest of the deck isn’t much more appealing.

Have a look…
