This week’s Nintendo Download is a promising one for all Nintendo gamers out there with a variety of games across 3DS and Nintendo Switch. On Switch, Overcooked comes highly recommended to me from those that have already played it one PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, plus Namco Museum arrives to provide some retro fun for all gamers. To cap off what would already be a good week, the 3DS has two must-gets in my opinion in Hey Pikmin! and Miitopia. I’ve completed the demo’s for each and enjoyed every bit that had to offer.
Overcooked: Special Edition ($20) – Working as a team, you and up to four* fellow chefs must prepare, cook and serve up a variety of tasty orders before the paying customers storm out in a huff. Overcooked: Special Edition features all the exhilarating (and enraging) kitchens from the main game, as well as both expansions, “The Lost Morsel” and “Festive Seasoning.” Sharpen your knives and dust off your chef’s whites – there isn’t mushroom for error, and the steaks are high in these crazy kitchens!
NAMCO MUSEUM ($30) – Play some of the most popular Namco games, anytime, anywhere! Enjoy classics such as PAC-MAN™,GALAGA™, SPLATTERHOUSE™ and TOWER OF DRUAGA™, or play games including ROLLING THUNDER™, SKYKID™ or TANK FORCE™ with friends and family.

Hey! PIKMIN ($40) – Captain Olimar has crashed on an unknown planet inhabited by Pikmin.
