This Nintendo Download has finally done what I’ve been waiting for all October – it got Halloweeny! Which is to be expected, since we’re just a week away from the spooky holiday, as well as the upcoming release of Luigi’s Mansion 3! As such, this Nintendo Download has some cool sweepstakes to check out, a bunch of featured titles, the usual sales and a bag full of digital candy. So let’s get started with some zombies, demons and one little monkey.
Capcom loves re-releasing games, and especially those from popular series like Resident Evil. So this time, we’re getting a twofer – Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6, respectively. Despite having heard bad things about both titles, I also never expected them to be able to run on a Nintendo console. So assuming they’re well optimized, both games might be worth a look. As an added bonus, if you’ve bought any of the previously released Resident Evil games already, you can pre-purchase 5 and 6 with a 33% discount. If you prefer more demonic fun, then you will love the antics of Disgaea 4 Complete+! And finally, if you like monkeying around (I’m so sorry), then you might enjoy Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD. But that’s not all this week of the Nintendo Download, not by a long shot. So let’s continue with a special sweepstakes offer.
- Enter the My Nintendo Luigi’s Mansion 3 Sweepstakes! – This year, the spookiest holiday of the year is extra spooky because the Luigi’s Mansion 3 game arrives on Oct. 31. Want to help us celebrate the game’s launch? You can enter the My Nintendo Luigi’s Mansion 3 Sweepstakes, exclusively for My Nintendo members. Redeem your My Nintendo Platinum Points for a chance to win spooky-fun prizes. The statues are incredibly detailed – seriously, check out the design of the ghost-sucking Poltergust G-00. It even matches the design seen in the game’s trailers.

There’s never a shortage of digital offerings, so here’s what to look for during next week’s Nintendo Download. If you love retro games, try Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and the Lion King. For some RPG fun, try Dusk Diver. If you prefer management games, try Harvest Moon: Mad Dash. For some multiplayer mayhem, try Door Kickers: Action Squad. In the spirit of the season, I have to mention VAMPYR. Or if you like turn based action, try Spaceland. If you love some alchemy waifu, try Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout. And lastly, for a faithful port of an incredible looking game, try Xeno Crisis.
There may be less digital games this week than last, but there’s still plenty to enjoy. For a duo of strategy games, try Anthill and Deep Space Rush. For a feline adventure, try Cat Quest II. For some platforming fun, try Dark Devotion, The Legend of Dark Witch and Pixel Gladiator. For SHMUP fun, try Ghost Blade HD and Vortex Attack EX.
