Nintendo Downloads - March 16, 2023
« on: March 13, 2023, 04:00:00 AM »

Maybe the origins of Bayonetta will keep this week's Nintendo download press release from going into the spam folder.

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/63146/nintendo-downloads-march-16-2023

T-14 days to eShop shutdown on Wii U and 3DS.

Things we missed last week: Turbo Force (1991 shooter) in the Archives, a canine-focused spinoff of the Metal Max series (Metal Dogs) which, if reviews are to be believed, can only improve on the last main series games, and a new Sherlock Holmes adventure from Frogwares (The Testament of Sherlock Holmes) now that the original ace detective is in the public domain.

So we normally get the press release from Nintendo with the week's releases on Thursday morning at around 9 am ET, but I didn't see it come in at the appointed time. I checked the following day and buried amongst the NFT, VR, blockchain, and metaverse BS that gets filtered was - you guessed it - Frank Stallone the download PR. I found it just as James's editorial on the subject went up, for some extra comedy. I can only assume that the over-SEOed titles certain publishers use for their shovelware tripped it - and Nintendo, I know you're probably not reading this, but y'all need to put the brakes on before we pass every home console's releases prior to the Switch with just games launched since the start of 2021. Which at current pace will be in June.

Anyway, current releases: Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon (now with a demo) is the biggest in terms of cost, though I'm glad I was able to get a head start on the week's biggest time sink: The Legend of Heroes: Trails to Azure. (Hey, I just happen to have a review right here if you're not convinced.) Also launching is a new Peppa Pig - and not, as might be expected, as a recipe on Saturday Kitchen. Smaller titles this week that might be worth watching: John will have a review of Fur Squadron later this week (like that game was going ANYWHERE else), and also possibly a review of Squad 51 vs The Flying Saucers, rhythm title Backbeat is on my own radar, and there's also Subway Midnight from the surprisingly busy Playism.
