Between finishing up a recent review and getting my second WWE 2K18 preview article ready, I kind of got a little behind on this week's Nintendo Download. Nevertheless, this week's featured games consist of elephants, a beat-'em-up, and an RPG. Interesting mixture, so let's begin with the elephant in the room with Yono and the Celestial Elephants on the Nintendo Switch, a game that has you play as a young elephant where you have to save a world full of people, puzzles, treasure hunts, and some combat. That description alone reminds me of an older game called C.J.'s Elephant Antics, but to the very few people who'll actually understand that reference, this is anything but. The game itself looks pretty interesting...then again with very few elephant-related games out there, that alone makes it interesting.
Moving on we have Wulverblade, a hardcore side-scrolling beat-'em-up where you have to help Britannia defeat the Romans. You can play alone or bring a friend along for the ride in co-op in this game inspired by classic arcade beat-'em-ups of the 80s and 90s. Meanwhile over on the 3DS we have Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth. The latest game in the Etrian Odyssey series features a new adventurer as they attempt to reach the top of the Yggdrasil Tree. You can customize your party as you see fit to work to your advantage with endless customization options, four unique races, and ten different classes. Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth will launch on October 17th.
