Nintendo Downloads – October 12, 2017 – News

Zelda + elephants. Need I say more?

The Switch’s release schedule has the momentum of a bullet train, so even as North America pumps the brakes in anticipation of the Fire Emblem Warriors / Jackbox Party Pack 4 / Super Mario Odyssey tripleheader the rest of this month that still means a double digit release count. We have a Touhou hijack from our friends at NIS America, Tiny Barbarian DX from Nicalis and 88 Heroes all shitting shelves both digital and physical this week, though let’s be fair – the big release is “Elephant Zelda”, aka Yono and the Celestial Elephants.

Friends of the indie scene Curve Digital have a new release in The Flame and the Flood, and intriguing brawler Wulverblade is also trying to cut out a piece of your wallet. In the retro front, the SNK portion of the Arcade Archives adds yet another King of Fighters title from a popular year in Atlanta, while the inexplicable streak of TG-16 releases on Wii U only accelerates with three games this week. (Review corner: Neal on Yono, Perry on Tiny Barbarian, and we have reviews incoming for Neon Chrome from David L and potentially a Wulverblade review from Justin N.)
