REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following content:



  • Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch
    • BRAVELY DEFAULT II – Explore a new world as you dare to risk it all and recover the Crystals with a party featuring four new Heroes of Light in this strikingly beautiful RPG adventure. Balance risk and reward in turn-based battles with the Brave and Default commands. Follow the story of a young sailor as he sets out on a grand adventure and meets plenty of friends (and foes) along the way. Build your own customized team and defeat bosses to acquire character jobs, each with their own set of distinct abilities. The more you learn, the more tactics you’ll wield. BRAVELY DEFAULT II will be available on Feb. 26. An updated demo for the game is also available now in Nintendo eShop.
    • Ghosts ’n Goblins Resurrection – Taking cues from both Ghosts ’n Goblins and Ghouls ’n Ghosts, while giving birth to something entirely new, Ghosts ’n Goblins Resurrection is a title worthy of its name. Don’t be fooled – this picturesque world, while gorgeous, maintains the same punishing gameplay that fans have come to expect. In this action game, make full use of Arthur’s weapons, magic and skills as you brave the ordeals of the Demon Realm to bring the princess home safely. Muster every ounce of grit you possess because you’re going to need it. The gauntlet has been thrown!
    • Blizzard Arcade Collection – Experience a blast from Blizzard Entertainment’s past! Relive the legacy of three Blizzard classics – Blackthorne, The Lost Vikings and Rock N Roll Racing. Experience two different Original Editions of each game plus a new Definitive Edition. Visit the Blizzard Arcade Collection Museum which features a trove of treasures from each game’s past like art and artifacts, music and behind-the-scenes interviews.
  • Digital Spotlight
    • New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe – If you’ve been enjoying the recent launch of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, why not take a jump into New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe! Featuring both New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U, you can join Mario and Luigi on two energetic, side-scrolling adventures through the Mushroom Kingdom. Easy-to-learn controls, new playable characters focused on accessibility, up to three player co-op and a wealth of helpful bonus content makes New Super Mario Bros.
