Nintendo Download: Put Down Your Roots

Cartoony 80s-themed actioner Mythforce finally lands this week, along with NBA 2K24, Bomberman, Gunbrella and more.

Indie-tastic

Though some other platforms have welcomed in gigantic, galaxy-sized blockbusters this week, the Nintendo Switch is no slouch either. A few big titles have landed on the platform, accompanied by some stellar looking Indies.

In terms of the major names, you’re pretty much talking about NBA 2K24 this week. 2K Sports’ yearly basketball title is looking great, and set to deliver another seasonal Switch upgrade, so if you’re in for hitting the court, you’ll want to check that out. Maybe check that thought though, as Bomberman’s is still a pretty well-known title, and there’s a new entry in the series this week for Nintendo fans to grab. Super Bomberman R 2 blasts the Switch with traditional series gameplay, as well as the all-new Castle Mode that offers up to 15 player matches.

Want more? Well, okay. Nintendo has you covered with the long-awaited Mythforce, side-scroller Gunbrella, and the homestead-minding Fae Farm, plus the arrival of the excellent action platformer 30XX, the River City Girls beat ’em up bundle, and tons more.
