Nintendo Download for 11/4/21

Halloween Is Dead. Hail November!


Nintendo Download | Skeletal Avenger

Well guys, Halloween is over. Time of death, last Sunday. Which is a huge bummer, but that doesn’t mean the Nintendo Download for 11/4/21 isn’t worthwhile. I’m still in withdrawal from jack-o-lanterns, trick or treat and costumed hooligans. But since it’s November, this Nintendo Download is less about spooky time and more about wholesome fun. We have cheery DLC, cozy activities, sales and a bunch of digital games to keep you warm. Let’s start with a series many absolutely adore.

More Fun With Tom Nook

Let’s just be real – Animal Crossing is a series you either love or you don’t. But for the many, many fans, it’s always great to have a reason to return. Which brings us to Animal Crossing: New Horizons‘ latest DLC called Happy Home Paradise. It drops tomorrow, and this paid DLC will add a bunch of new things to do. Or if you prefer to groove to the music, you might enjoy Just Dance 2022. For those that have the creative spark to build, you should try Airborne Kingdom. And for a slice of life puzzle game, there’s Where Cards Fall. Next up, some fun activities to enjoy.
