Nintendo Download: Strawberry on the Nintendo Switch Shortcake!

Nintendo Download: Strawberry on the Nintendo Switch Shortcake!

Travis Touchdown returns in No More Heroes 3 this week, along with Quake, the Doom collection, and a whole bunch more.

Touchdown!

Yes ol’ Travis is back, and this time is faced with an invading army. The Switch exclusive No More Heroes 3 pits the hero (?) against a force of alien invaders and their leader Prince FU. Yeah.

On top of that, there’s also the surprise announcement/launch of ID’s classic 90s FPS Quake. I’m pretty sure that one needs no introduction, but does features some awesome extras, including new expansion missions and the same great mod support that the newer versions of Doom sport.

Speaking of, Doom: The Slayer’s Collection has made its way to the Switch, and actually builds on the version launched for competing platforms. While it still doesn’t include Doom Eternal, you do get Doom 64 in addition to all the classics and Doom 2016.

Want more? Well there’s plenty of it. This week goes heavy on new game launches, in terms of smaller-scale and indy titles. Scroll down to check ’em all out.
