REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following content:
Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch
- 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.
- Games for Every Taste – Have some foodie-fun this holiday week with these games that include … food! Sip a warm beverage with friends* or cultivate a bountiful harvest in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Whip up a kingdom-sized feast with ingredients found around Hyrule in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – but be careful what you toss together, otherwise you may make some Dubious Food! Craft a cornucopia of consumables in Minecraft. Roll up some sweet treats in Kirby’s Dream Buffet or get something hearty with a side of platforming action to go in Kirby and the Forgotten Land (with an appetite like Kirby’s, you know he had to show up for seconds)! Animal Crossing: New Horizons, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Minecraft, Kirby’s Dream Buffet and Kirby and the Forgotten Land are all available now in Nintendo eShop.
- Fall Guys – Dive into Fall Guys Season 3: Sunken Secrets and explore a lost city under the sea! These crumbling courses are in disrepair, so get ready to dodge the dangers of the deep, including wonky obstacles and the tentacles of a mighty kraken! The city’s former inhabitants also built colossal slime slides, so take a leap for a quick but perilous slip to the finish line. Contestants seeking extra rewards for their efforts can also earn two full costume variations via new Marathon Challenges, so grab a tropical floaty and dive into this season of secrets!
