Nintendo Download: The Seaside Hides Secrets

After a quite spot last week the Nintendo Download returns with a new selection of titles, including possible sleeper in Project Warlock.

Magic summer

Now, the spotlighted game this week is technically Summer in Mara. It. looks like a laid back little game that seems similar to Animal Crossing. It promises secrets to discover and a “strong narrative”. So if you’re looking for that kind of thing, it sounds like it could scratch the itch.

I think the better pick of the week though, is Project Warlock. An indie FPS that’s been on the PC for a while, Project Warlock hits the Switch with a cool hand-drawn/retro-game look. Check out the PC version’s trailer below…

Even with Warlock and Summer of Mara, there’s really no ‘must play’ this week. Not to say there isn’t a lot to stuff arriving, but nothing is really much of a standout.

Scroll down to check out the full list of what’s hitting.
