Nintendo Download: Bust a Move!

It’s time to Move It, as the new WarioWare game arrives, along with Star Ocean the Second Story R, a Blasphemous bundle, and a bunch more.

Get moovin’

Is WarioWare a marquee Nintendo series? Eh, probably not, but it does have its audience, and if you’re into its selection of micro-games, then you should be pleased tomorrow. That’s because this week’s Nintendo Download heralds the arrival of Mario’s childhood nemesis, and “WarioWare: Move It!”.

If you know the series, then you know what to expect. Move It! is stocked with over 200 bite-sized games to “shake, punch, dance, wiggle and even curtsey” your way across. As usual though, this headline title isn’t alone in dropping onto the Switch, and there’s a pretty big selection of smaller releases to go along with it.

Those include My Time at Sandrock, which is the post-apocalyptic sequel to My Time at Portia, as well as Star Ocean the Second Story R. If the latter doesn’t ring a bell, it’s a remake of a classic 90s JRPG. Promising “fast-paced action battles”, this new title looks incredible, melding classic genre designs with modern 3D settings.
