Nintendo Download: Frozen Floes and Fearsome Foes

Triangle Strategy arrives on the Switch today, headlining a week that includes Gunborg, Hundred Days, and lots of smaller releases.

Strategic release

It’s kind of a slow week for Nintendo gamers, though there is one very bright spot (potentially) with Triangle Strategy. The RPG casts players as the heir of House Wolffort, who must decide how best to lead. The trick comes in, in that each of your advisers has a vote as well. And how they all vote depends on how they align with you. So some very interesting possibilities there.

Once you get past TS though, there’s precious little notable out there. Gunborg looks kind of interesting as well, but unless you’re really into wine, that’s just about it this week.

Not to say that there aren’t other releases, because there are plenty, but I wouldn’t call any of them highlights. Nevertheless, maybe something might catch your attention, so scroll down to check ’em out.

Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch

  • TRIANGLE STRATEGY – Recruit over 20 playable characters with distinct skills, and command your party as Serenoa, heir of House Wolffort, in a tangled plot where your decisions make all the difference. Key choices you make will bolster one of three convictions – Utility, Morality, Liberty – which together make up Serenoa’s world view and influence how the story will unfold. When faced with truly momentous decisions, multiple characters will weigh in by casting their votes on the Scales of Conviction. In these moments, the allies and decisions you make can determine the fate of Norzelia itself. Play from the beginning through Chapter 3 – and experience your first Scales of Conviction vote – with the free Prologue Demo available now in Nintendo eShop. Your progress carries over to the full game, once purchased. TRIANGLE STRATEGY will be available on March 4.
  • Gunborg: Dark Matters – Gunborg: Dark Matters is an arcade-style, action-packed platformer in space, with smooth gameplay and a slick, ’80s synthwave soundtrack. Armed with a fierce blade and a powerful shield, your challenge is to fight your way through a mad alien spaceship filled with nefarious creatures and capture the fearsome bosses defending it. Do you have what it takes to face constant threats while staying on your feet in the heat of combat? Can you keep your cool when chaos is descending upon you? Gunborg: Dark Matters will be available on March 4.
  • Hundred Days – Winemaking Simulator – In Hundred Days – Winemaking Simulator you will have complete control of a new winery. Choose which vines to grow, learn how to grow them and when to harvest, and then follow the entire winemaking process. You will decide on the type of wine you want to produce and sell to allow your company to expand. Just like in real life, every choice made, from the vineyard to the sales, will be able to influence the wine produced, both in quantity and quality. A quality wine will increase the reputation of your company worldwide and will allow you to grow better and faster. 


  • Play the Kirby and the Forgotten Land Demo – In the Kirby and the Forgotten Land game on the Nintendo Switch system, you’ll join Kirby on an unforgettable journey in a mysterious world. The new demo out today includes three stages from the first world. You can test your mettle against the first boss, the fearsome Gorimondo of the Beast Pack. The demo will also let you sample some of Kirby’s abilities, including the new Mouthful Mode. With this latest addition to his repertoire, Kirby can inhale real-world objects to assume powerful transformations. Purchase the full game when it launches on March 25 to experience Kirby’s complete roster of abilities and transformations.
