Nintendo Download for August 3, 2017 – North America

To kick off the first week of August, we have the Nintendo Switch edition of the Nintendo Download.  Why do I say it’s the Switch edition?  Probably has something to do with the fact that only two titles are not being released on it.  Let’s see what else is in store for us today!

So, there’s really only two titles not releasing on Switch today?  Believe-it-or-not, that is true.  On the 3DS eShop, you can pick up the 3D model designer, VoxelMaker.  You can view, create, and share your own art using this application.   The Wii U gets a single title with Flight of Light.  This is a rhythm game where you must race to the beat of the upbeat soundtrack!

Switching over, let’s see what is available on that Nintendo Switch.  Headlining the release is Retro City Rampage DX.  It is a reimaging of the open-world crime scene from the 1980’s!  You can complete missions, play arcade games, explore the city, and meet special guest stars!  Also available are: ACA NEOGEO AERO FIGHTERS 2, Slime-san, GUNBARICH for Nintendo Switch, STRIKERS1945 for Nintendo Switch, Puzzle Adventure Blockle, Use Your Words, and Infinite Minigolf.

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!
