Nintendo Download: Raises the Probability of Landing a Critical Hit

This week’s Nintendo Download has a pretty interesting selection of releases, with rhythm-action, role-playing, Digimon, and more.

I’m dancin’ I’m dancin’

I guess it’s kind of a weird week for Nintendo fans. On the one hand, there are a lot of games hitting, but on the other… well they all might not include something that you’re gonna like.

None of the headline releases for the week are ‘action’ games after all, and there are no platformers or fighting games or anything like that. Instead, the marquee game is Theatrhythm Final Bar Line. And if you don’t know what that is, it’s basically a cute version of Final Fantasy, where the franchise’s classic RPG battles play out in rhythm-action style. Pretty niche-y.

Once you get past that one, there’s the self-explanatory Tales of Symphonia Remastered. Yes, that’s exactly what it sounds like, so if you’re a big Tales fan or have yet to play this RPG classic, you might want to check it out.

And finally, on the highlighted list of titles, there’s Digimon World: Next Order. No, this isn’t a title about globalism, but instead is right in line with the property’s usual “monster-collecting RPG” themes.

Of course, there’s also the list of smaller launches, which doesn’t really have any standouts this week. Maybe that’s just me though, so feel free to scroll on down and see for yourself.

  • Tales of Symphonia Remastered – One of the most critically-acclaimed action-RPGs in the Tales of series returns with a full HD remastering. Sylvarant is a world in danger of extinction due to the exploitation of mana by an evil group thought to be sealed away by the hero Mithos 4,000 years ago.

  • Digimon World: Next Order – Welcome Back to the Digital World! The Digital World has run rampant with Machinedramon and is now in a state of utter chaos.

    • Be Kind Just for the Heck of It – Some say an act of kindness is never wasted, and this is the ideal week to put it to the test. Be kind to a resident in Animal Crossing: New Horizons by giving them the elegant clothes they love, or invite a friend to your island and hand them something valuable – perhaps a Pisces star fragment? Make a friend or two in Stardew Valley by passing out gifts in Pelican Town while you’re feeling generous. Want to go the extra mile IRL? Pick a name out of a hat and surprise a pal with a Nintendo eShop gift card. Talk about random kindness! Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Stardew Valley are available now in Nintendo eShop.
