Hope you all had a spooky Halloween yesterday! Today, it’s time for another Nintendo Download that has a lot of creepy fun. There’s also a couple of new activities and a whole bunch of digital offerings to check out. So get ready to binge on some sweet stuff with today’s installment of Nintendo Download!
What better way to start the Download right after Halloween than Diablo III: Eternal Collection? This is one of those games I never thought I’d see on a Nintendo console, but I’m glad it made the Switch. This version comes packed with some console exclusives such as a Cucco companion set, Gannondorf armor and more. If you want to fall deep into this crazy game, you can do so starting tomorrow. However, if you’re looking for a RPG with some rogue in it, you might enjoy Moonlighter when it releases November 5th. I was caught by the pixelated art style when I saw the game at PAX, and will be keeping my eyes peeled for more news about it. The next game is for fans of Final Fantasy who don’t own a Vita or PS4 (or game on Steam). The fantastic chibi adventures of World of Final Fantasy are coming to Switch as World of Final Fantasy Maxima. New to this edition is the Avatar Change mechanic, which is sure to make a wonderful adventure last even longer! Finally, if you love super casual Pokémon games, you’ll love that Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! are both coming to Switch on November 16th. As for myself, I’ll be waiting til they announce the next mainline series game to headline the Switch. But that’s not all, the following events are also happening!
- Celebrate the Harvest Season with My Nintendo Rewards for November – My Nintendo members, it’s time for new game discounts and other rewards for November.
- Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp One-Year Anniversary Event – It’s almost the first anniversary of the Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp smartphone game**! There are a lot of events and gifts in store, in addition to a new type of Seasonal Event. A Seasonal Event is a special event period during which you can get furniture and clothing items by participating in the garden event, Gyroidite Scavenger Hunt and Fishing Tourney during that period. Collect a bunch of first-anniversary candles to complete Anniversary Goals to get the first-anniversary cake, golden party table and first-anniversary outfit. You can get first-anniversary candles from Isabelle’s Party-Prep Project, Gyroidite Scavenger Hunt #5 or Fishing Tourney #8.
