Nintendo Download: Did You Check the Instruction Manual?

This week Nintendo players have a couple of nice options for fresh gaming, including Life is Strange, Shovel Knight, Tunic, and more.

But… there is no manual

It might not be a set of games that are blockbusters, but there are a couple of nice titles arriving this week for Switch fans regardless. Chief among those might be Shovel Knight Dig, a new title in that line.

The fresh title sets the title hero up against Drill Knight, a dastardly villain who’s more or less stoled all of Shovel Knights stuff. Aside from the usual shoveling goodness, Dig throws another monkey wrench into the mix as he’s got to also watch the ground he’s standing on. Wouldn’t want that to give-away after all.

Aside from that, there’s also the Life is Strange bundle that is the Arcadia Bay Collection. If you missed the two games in that set, you might want to check that out, as they’re both highly regarded. Then there’s Tunic, which is an isometric action/adventure… starring a small fox.

Those are the standouts, but there’s a lot more as usual, including more headlining titles. Scroll down to see everything landing on the Nintendo machine this week.
