We’re back with the first Nintendo Download of November. This one is a bit less eventful than most other recent ones, in that we only have two featured titles to check out today.

 

Featured Games


The first featured game of today’s Nintendo Download is Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin ($39.99). After being banished from her opulent, celestial home, Sakuna is now on a demon-infested island! She also has her guardian, Tama, with her, and a few outcast humans. They’ll need to weather the elements, grow rice (her power source), and of course deal with those pesky demons. Players will experience both 3D simulation-style and side-scrolling gameplay. Sakuna: Of Rice and Rain is set to launch for Switch on November 10th.

 

The second and final featured game this week is FUSER ($59.99). Jump into an endless virtual music festival brought to you by the creators of Rock Band and Just Dance. This time, you get to combine elements from popular songs to create your own unique sound. You can also collaborate with a friend, and share your remixes with the world. FUSER is set to arrive on the Switch on November 10th.

 

Before we move on to sales, we have one other piece of news. Nintendo has an Animal Crossing sweepstakes on the My Nintendo website. You can redeem some of your platinum points by November 10th at 11:50pm PT to be entered for a chance to win. The winners get a package of themed prizes, including items like the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Official Companion Guide and a Nook Inc. Aloha shirt.

Now let’s move on to the sales news for this first Nintendo Download of the month.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer, which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
