Nintendo Download: Unavoidably Late Edition
Well it’s definitely the Halloween season by now. But we still technically have a couple weeks to go before the holiday itself. Though Nintendo isn’t fully leaning into the spoopy spirit yet, I’ll do my best to keep this Nintendo Download for 10/14/21 spooky. There’s several featured titles, one of which helps with that goal. Plus there’s also the usual digital goodies, sales and more. Let’s start with a game I never imagined on a Nintendo console.
Who’s Hungry For Brains?
Nothing says spooky quite like zombies. Which Dying Light: Platinum Edition has in spades. Enjoy the survival horror mayhem with friends or solo, and take advantage of expansive bonus DLC content. And for those that love Switch functionality, this version of the game even has touch controls. Or if you want something truly scary (albeit unintentionally), then look no further than The Jackbox Party Pack 8! Or for those that like embracing the weird, check out The Good Life. Or try surviving under the depths in Subnautica + Subnautica: Below Zero. Now let’s continue the Nintendo Download with some promotions.
- Sora From KINGDOM HEARTS Is Coming To Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – The iconic Keyblade wielder will be the final DLC fighter added to the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game on Oct. 18, completing an extraordinary, nearly three-year journey of new fighters across video game history joining the game’s roster. Challenger Pack 11 contains Sora as a playable fighter, the new Hollow Bastion stage and a selection of music tracks from the KINGDOM HEARTS franchise. Challenger Pack 11 is part of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2, which can be purchased for a suggested retail price of $29.99 and also includes Min Min from the ARMS game, Steve & Alex from Minecraft, Sephiroth from the FINAL FANTASY series, Pyra/Mythra from the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 game and Kazuya from the TEKKEN franchise. Challenger Pack 11 can also be purchased separately for $5.99.
- Last Chance To Soar – The Link & Loftwing – The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD Sweepstakes ends on Oct. 18. This is your last chance to get a legendary collection of prizes, which includes a Link on Loftwing statue and an acrylic panel featuring art from the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD game, among other cool keepsakes. My Nintendo members can redeem 10 Platinum Points to enter, with up to three entries total. Five lucky winners will be picked, so enter today!
Soar Into Special Savings
Before we move onto the Game Guide, we have a couple special sales to go over. First up is the Perfect World ‘Big Adventures’ Sale. It lasts for another few days, and only features 3 games, but they’re all worthy contenders. Better yet, they’re at a very affordable price. Those games are the following – Hob: The Definitive Edition, Torchlight II and Torchlight III. All available for less than $10 a piece.
Next up, you can litigate your way to victory with the Ace Attorney 20th Anniversary Sale. Lasting from today until 10/18, it has decent savings on several Ace Attorney games. Those are the following – Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy, Dual Destinies, Spirit of Justice and Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney.
