Well folks, I hope you’re all having a better week than me, since I’ve been coughing and wheezing all week of this Nintendo Download. But as I’m starting to feel human again, I’m here to cover your weekly Nintendo Download! As this is the first Download of November, there’s officially no focus on Halloween hijinx anymore. We have a few featured titles, some new events, the usual sales and some digital goodies. So let’s get started with an adorable vulpine hero.
Our first featured title this seek is a game I’ve been interested in since it was first announced as an Xbox exclusive. Then it was called Super Lucky’s Tale, and I rather enjoyed demoing it. This past E3 I got the chance to play the new Switch version, called New Super Lucky’s Tale, and while it played much like I remembered, that’s far from a complaint. Regardless of the version, this is pure platforming fun, with charm to spare. But if you don’t believe me, wait a week or so for my upcoming review of New Super Lucky’s Tale. Next up is an adorable entry from Disney, called Disney TSUM TSUM FESTIVAL. Featuring multiplayer and tons of minigames to enjoy, this is the perfect all ages sort of game. And lastly, if you love playing detective, you might enjoy LAYTON’S MYSTERY JOURNEY™: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy – Deluxe Edition. Originally for the 3DS, I found the source game entertaining, though perhaps less so than the games that inspired it. And while I’m bothered that there’s no dual screen antics, they make up for it with new puzzles, DLC and outfits to keep you playing. But that’s far from everything this week. Let’s move on with a couple events.
- Take in the Sights at the City of Lights with Mario Kart Tour – Blast through the scenic streets of grand Paris during the Paris Tour event, which runs exclusively in the Mario Kart Tour game** until Nov. 19. Racers can zoom past the Eiffel Tower while playing as Shy Guy dressed as a pastry chef, or as Peach, looking positively resplendent in her stylish vacation outfit as she explores Paris.
- Don’t Miss Your Last Chance to Enter the My Nintendo Luigi’s Mansion 3 Sweepstakes! – Celebrate the spookiest game of the year with the My Nintendo Luigi’s Mansion 3 Sweepstakes***, exclusively for My Nintendo members. Redeem your My Nintendo Platinum Points for a chance to win fun prizes, including a Luigi’s Mansion 3 PVC Statue. These statues are incredibly detailed – seriously, check out the design of the Poltergust G-00 in all its ghost-slamming glory.
Next up in this week’s Nintendo Download, let’s check out some savings. First up, XSEED Games still has a sale going that you can snag a couple savings on, and it ends today.
