Nintendo Download: Binding of Isaac Aftermath+, World of Goo, Picross 3D, more

The Switch’s lineup of games continues to grow with five new releases as part of today’s Nintendo Download.

First up, we’ve got Binding of Isaac Aftermath+, an action-packed dungeon-crawler from Nicalis and Edmund McMillen. The procedurally-generated roguelike includes “more than 11,000 unique room configurations” and “a nearly endless variety of enemies, items, challenges, and secrets.”

Also available to download this week is a trio of Wii and Wii U re-releases from Tomorrow Corporation. Switch owners will be able to pick up physics-based puzzler World of Goo, fireplace adventure Little Inferno, or “puzzle game for nerds” Human Resource Machine. And speaking of re-releases, SNK and Hamster Corporation will bring The King of Fighters ’94, the first game in the King of Fighters franchise, to the Switch.

Nintendo will also add Picross 3D, which was originally released for the DS in 2010, to the Wii U eShop.

You can learn more about all of these games (and a few other new releases) after the break.
