Nintendo Digital Download Thursdays

Lots of great stuff this week to choose from on the eShop. For the Switch we’ve got Lego City Undercover, an open world game that has you play a cop gone undercover to take down the criminal Rex Fury. You can hop in and out of a plethora of vehicles and the enhanced port gets better graphics and adds a two player co-op mode.

Graceful Explosion Machine hits Switch today. If you like classic shooters like Defender and love to combo kill enemies to beat high scores, this one’s for you. Our full review is right here!

This week another Neo Geo game comes to the Switch. This time around it’s the overhead space shoot’em up, Alpha Mission II. I vaguely remember playing this one in the arcade way back in the early ’90s and having a great time!
