Nintendo Download: Mare of Equestria

Nintendo Download: Mare of Equestria

It’s a My Little Pony kind of week on the Switch, but don’t worry, that’s not all. Platformer Kao the Kangaroo hits too, plus a bunch of smaller releases.


So we actually just ran a bit of release news about Kao, and it’s looking pretty sharp. The game comes out of Tate Multimedia and is meant to reboot a Dreamcast title from decades gone by.

No, it’s not a ‘retro game’, but it does nod to the original, and features a design that seems reminiscent of 90s 3D platformers. You can check out a bit more about it here, and see the trailer below.

As for the other spotlight game of the Download, that’d be My Little Pony: A Maretime Bay Adventure. Yes, that MLP. So I’m gonna stop there, but if you’re into it, it’s ready to go tomorrow.

Unfortunately there isn’t a whole lot else this week, as the smaller and indie launches are kinda unimpressive. Still, best to scroll down and see for yourself. Never know.
