Nintendo Download: Grow and Eat, Jump to the Beat and Hide from the Heat

A big week for Nintendo’s Switch sees action with Rogue Company and Crysis Remastered, as well as the bloody horror of Carrion arrive.

Blood and gore and shooting’ galore

After a few weeks of drought, Nintendo’s download is loaded for action yet again. There are some seriously good looking titles this week too, including the debut of Rogue Company and Carrion.

If you’re not familiar with the latter there, you should be. We reviewed Carrion here and called it:

…exactly the type of game I wanted to play. It is short enough to stay fresh throughout its entire length, but long enough to provide a true sense of character growth (literally!!!). It is fun to play, with only a few tedious moments throughout. Carrion knows what it wants to be and doesn’t stop until it accomplishes it.

Our score: 92%

But if horror isn’t your bag, then you might be more interested in the remaster of Crysis. A legitimate PC action classic, Crysis was a beast of an FPS years ago. Now of course, it can be played convincingly on the Nintendo Switch. How times change.

Check out the full list of new titles below.
