Nintendo Download: Dodging Nightmares and Soaring Through Dreams

It’s a down week for Nintendo Switch gamers, and there isn’t all that much in the way of big names to buy. Still, there are some possible gems.

And I shall be the Falconer

So yes, it’s a pretty slow week. But even without a bunch of big name releases, there are a few titles launching for the Switch that might be worth a look.

For starters, there’s The Falconeer: Warrior Edition. A pretty good looking title, The Falconeer puts gamers in the saddle of a giant falcon for what looks to be a Panzer Dragoon-style experience.

There’s also the Ace Attorney Turnabout Collection, which includes a 5 pack of games from Capcom’s classic courtroom series. Then there are the headline games, with Dreamscaper, Dodgeball Academia, and Badland: Game of the Year Edition. I’ve personally never heard of any of them, but they’re the spotlighted titles this week, so they might be worth at least a look.

As usual, there are a bunch more to look at too, and we’ve got all of them below for your perusal.

Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch

  • Dreamscaper – By night, delve deep into your subconscious, facing nightmares in an ever-changing world filled with unique items, abilities and challenges. By day, explore the city of Redhaven, build relationships and unlock permanent upgrades in order to take on the next dream stronger than ever. Dreamscaper is an endlessly replayable action roguelike with a waking/dreaming gameplay cycle.
  • Dodgeball Academia – In a world where dodgeball is life, you join Otto at the academy and train to become the ultimate dodgeball champion. Across eight episodes, you’ll forge friendships and create rivals, all in the name of developing the best dodgeball team. Level up Otto and develop a dynamic team across a vast and customizable party progression system. All the while, explore the vast Dodgeball Academia and uncover the long-hidden truths that reside within the very walls you live, learn and dominate in.
  • BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition – Fly and survive through the game-of-the-year-winning world of BADLAND and discover an astonishing number of imaginative traps, puzzles and obstacles along the way. BADLAND is an atmospheric, side-scrolling, action-adventure platformer set in a gorgeous forest full of various inhabitants, trees and flowers. Although the forest appears to be right out of a beautiful fairy tale, there’s something terribly wrong. BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition will be available on Aug. 6.
