This week’s Nintendo Download is here… and it’s party time.
After dropping The Jackbox Party Pack 3 on the Switch closer to the console’s launch, Jackbox Games is back with both of its predecessors… The Jackbox Party Pack and The Jackbox Party Pack 2. Each Pack includes five party games, and some will offer thrills and entertainment for up to 100 players.
Speaking of parties, Switch owners will also be able to hook up with Jesse and friends on Tuesday, August 22, in Minecraft: Story Mode – The Complete Adventure. The bundle will include all eight episodes from the game’s first season.
Finally, Switch owners will also get the chance to download Sky Ride, a 3D shooter that defies gravity; and Magician Lord, a side-scrolling beat ’em up and one of the first games ever released for the NeoGeo.
