Nintendo Download 4/20/2018: Ample Parking, Day or Night

More On: Nintendo Download South Park: The Fractured But Whole

This week's Nintendo Download has Switch owners heading on down to South Park to have themselves a time, as South Park: The Fractured But Whole arrives on the eShop on the 24th. While the previous game had a Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones-esque theme the sequel shifts the focus to Cartman's superhero team, Coon and Friends. As the new kid you must join the team and help Cartman get a Marvel-style movie deal. From what I've heard this game goes less for shock value than Stick of Truth did and has more ironic humor, but retains the same great RPG gameplay.

Also this week Animal Crossing Pocket Camp gets an update that adds new features and animal townspeople. A fortune cookie shop has opened in town, which gives you random items based on the type of cookie, which of course you can buy with bells or leap tickets. This sounds suspiciously like lootboxes to me, so I guess we'll see if Pocket Camp goes full Battlefront II or keeps its random drops more tightly controlled.

You can check out all the releases and deals in the press release after the jump.

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.

Remember that Nintendo Switch, Wii U, Wii, New Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 2DS XL and Nintendo 2DS feature parental controls that let adults manage some of the content their children can access.
