Nintendo Download for August 24, 2017 – North America

Welcome to the Nintendo Download Mini edition!  In this edition, it seems they’ve decided to not only let the Wii U have back-to-back weeks with zero releases, but decided to let the 3DS have a dead week as well.  Not only that, but there are only three titles releasing today on Switch, because the headliner is dropping on August 29.  Let’s see what is in store for us today!


There is very little variety in the available titles. A few years ago a game called forma.8 was showcased for the Wii U and even offered a playable demo as part of the Nindies program.  This title is now available, but for the Nintendo Switch.  Uncover tons of secrets exploring the depth of space in a tiny spaceship!  The NEO GEO virtual console continues to expand with ACA NEOGEO Puzzled.  In case you are looking for a new puzzle game, then check out the line-drawing Piczle Lines DX.  Connect lines together to reveal the picture!

The long anticipated crossover adventure between Mario and the Rabbids is almost here.  Releasing on August 29 is Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle.  Four Rabbids team up with Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, and Peach to save the Mushroom Kingdom from some chaotic Rabbids. Battle your way with weapons, solve puzzles through four different worlds!

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!
