Nintendo Download for August 17, 2017 – North America

I cannot remember if this type of week has occurred since the Switch Launch, but today’s edition does not have a single Wii U title.  Is the Wii U dead?  Or is it just for this week?    Likely the latter, but we shall see next week.  Let’s see what is in store for us today!

Headlining the release is Minecraft: Story Mode – The Complete Adventure for the Nintendo Switch.  Explore, mine, build, and create a world as you wish.  This edition includes the first five episodes of season one and three episodes from the adventure pack.  However, you will need to wait until August 22 to play this one.  Also, releasing on Switch are The Jackbox Party Pack, The Jackbox Party Pack 2, ACA NEOGEO Magician Lord, and Sky Ride.

The 3DS gets a pair of titles with Chicken Wiggle and Alchemic Dungeon.  There are also a variety of new rewards available on My Nintendo.  You can get some new thirty percent off discounts, and get new themes, videos and other miscellaneous rewards available on 3DS, Wii U and computer.


As always, the full release list is below, along with the prices, just below the slideshow of screenshots. If you plan on downloading any of these games, let us know in the comments!
