As the weekend draws near, Nintendo Download is here once again with a selection of brand new digital offerings for your Nintendo systems.
Read on for our highlights of this week:
Tank Troopers – $7.99 – Tank Troopers, first revealed during the 3DS Nintendo Direct back in autumn 2016, is a tank warfare game published by Nintendo. Up to six players can play in local multiplayer, each able to operate one of over 30 different tanks and slog it out in a number of expansive maps full of destructible elements. Alongside the multiplayer action, there is also a fairly substantive single-player campaign featuring 30 different missions and, in typical Nintendo fashion, you’re able to make use of a range of different abilities — like paintballs, which act like Mario Kart’s squid ink and block an enemy’s view.
Wii U eShop
Back to Bed – $9.99 – Released back in 2014 on PC and mobile (and on the European eShop in December 2016), this 3D indie puzzle game has now made its way across to the American Wii U eShop. The game has a mindbending, unique art style which generally reflects how bonkers the overall game is. The player’s goal is to guide a sleepwalker called Bob back to the safety of his bed by controlling his subconscious guardian, who is called Subob (see what they did there?). It features a surreal painting-like dream world and if you’re in the mood for a solid puzzle game, this is well worth your time.
Wii U Virtual Console
Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber – $9.99 – Originally released in 1999 on the Nintendo 64, Ogre Battle 64 is a real-time strategy role-playing game set in a fantasy world embroiled in civil war. The game lets you command up to 50 different fighters at once and the gameplay centres around the effective organisation of troops in the deployment phase before the actual battle begins. Even next to today’s games, Ogre Battle 64 has a lot of depth and it’s more than possible to lose many hours delving into its systems.
