Nintendo Download for 9/29/22

Choo Choo!


Nintendo Download | Railgrade

I don’t say this very often, but here goes – this Nintendo Download is a little lackluster. There’s not a ton of sales going on and the featured titles are a bit bland. But that doesn’t mean the Nintendo Download for 9/29/22 isn’t worth checking out. Especially if you like sports games or MMO styled titles. So let’s start with a game that almost everybody is excited about.


Multiplayer Mayhem


Nintendo Download | Overwatch 2

I’ll just preface this by saying the only massively multiplayer game I play is Splatoon 3. So I’m not big on the style of game, but I know plenty of you are. So perhaps you’ll be excited about Overwatch 2. It’s going to be free to play on pretty much everything this October. So if that sounds like your sort of thing, get ready. It’s coming October 4th. Next up is something I’m even less enthused by – sports games without any cool gimmicks. But if you love realism, you might enjoy EA SPORTS FIFA 23 Nintendo Switch Legacy Edition. Lastly, there’s an interesting looking sim game called RAILGRADE. Though I’m a sucker for anything with futuristic robots in it. Now let’s continue the Nintendo Download with some sales.
