Nintendo Download 1/22/18: Darkest Kirby Dungeon

More On: Nintendo Download

This week's Nintendo Download has both indie and first party goodness for eShop patrons. Kirby Battle Royale arrives on the 3DS, allowing you and four friends to decide who is the greatest Kirby as four of the little puffs can battle using all sorts of copy abilities and battle types.

Darkest Dungeon brings gothic roguelike adventuring to Switch. The game was a huge seller on Steam and being able to take it on the go adds even more incentive to pick it up if you previously missed it.

Also of note is the expansion pass for Xenoblade Chronicles 2; this week the first content packs for pass owners drop, adding new quests, rare loot and some helpful gear.

There's more digital goodness in the press release below so check it out if you're keen to do some eShop shopping this week.

Also new this week:

In addition to video games available at retail stores, Nintendo also offers a variety of content that people can download directly to their systems. Nintendo adds new games weekly to Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo Switch console, the Wii U console and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.

Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service that features a wide variety of content, including new and classic games, applications and demos. Users can add money to their account balances by using a credit card or purchasing a Nintendo eShop Card at a retail store and entering the code from the card. All funds from one card must be loaded in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch, Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can be used in any Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single Nintendo Account.

Customers in the U.S. and Canada ages 18 and older can also link a PayPal account to their Nintendo Account to purchase digital games and content for the Nintendo Switch system both on-device and from the Nintendo website. Once the accounts are linked, users may also use PayPal as a payment option when buying digital content for the Wii U or Nintendo 3DS family systems from the Nintendo website.

The Wii Shop Channel offers games and applications and uses Wii Points, which can be purchased via the Wii Shop Channel.

Remember that Nintendo Switch, Wii U, Wii, New Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 3DS XL, New Nintendo 2DS XL and Nintendo 2DS feature parental controls that let adults manage some of the content their children can access. Nintendo 3DS players who register a Nintendo Network ID gain access to free-to-start games and free game demos from Nintendo eShop, and also get the latest news and information direct from Nintendo.
