Nintendo Download: Happy Thanksgiving!

We weren’t publishing last weekend because of the holiday, so if you missed it, here’s the Thanksgiving edition of the Nintendo Download.

Mmm leftovers

Yeah, at this point everything that you see below is a leftover, but there were still some notable titles in last week’s Nintendo Download. Among those are The Knight Witch, which might have flown under your radar, but is shockingly cool looking, and the classic Blade of Darkness.

If you don’t know what that is, it’s a tough as nails hack and slash with swordplay that more often than not ends up with dismemberment. Definitely check it out if you fondly remember the 3D action tittles of yore.

But if neither of those games do it for you, you still might be in luck. Don’t forget that the eShop’s Cyber Sale is still rolling, and will be around til the 4th of December. With a good number of big name titles counted amongst its offering slate, it’s worth paging through.

  • The Knight Witch – This hand-crafted adventure emphasizes the importance of saying “thank you.” Cast devastating card-based spells, forge close bonds and make moral choices, all in your quest to save your home and discover who’s behind the War Golem invasion. Encounter evil foes and choose how to proceed. As you journey across Dungeonidas, your heroic deeds and efforts will be seen and discussed by the citizenry. Knight Witches become stronger with gratitude and trust, and they can earn it in many ways – however, not all methods are sincere. Will you do anything to gain popularity, or will you try and stay honest? The choice is in your hands. The Knight Witch blasts its way on to the Nintendo Switch system on Nov. 29.
