With Thanksgiving just a mere week away, the Nintendo Download for 11/17/22 has cooked up something special. Not only is the latest Pokémon adventure right around the corner, but there’s also some other fun featured titles, some My Nintendo promotions, sales, digital goodies and all sorts of entertainment to stuff yourself with. But first, let’s go to the Paldea region!
Grass Kitty FTW
I’ve been playing the Pokémon series for so long that I complain about it as much as I cheer for it. And though I have high expectations for the games that isn’t always met, I’m nevertheless really excited when GameFreak tries something really different. Which brings us to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Not only is this the first wide-open choose-your-own-adventure style of Pokémon game, but it even lets you play online with your friends! Throw in some really adorable starters and a new Terastal phenomenon, and I think we might be on the verge of playing one of the best Pokémon games in quite some time. But that’s not all for the Nintendo Download. You can also dance to the hottest beats in Just Dance 2023 Edition. Or if you prefer games that make you think, there’s Finding Paradise. Last but not least, fans of rogue beat ’em ups can check out Bravery and Greed! Before we move on to the sales, let’s touch on a couple My Nintendo promotions.
While I’m not interested in spending more money just to play a few more classic games, you might be a fan of the Expansion Pass. If so, you’re in luck. Until January 31st those that have the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pass get double My Nintendo Gold Points on digital and DLC purchases. Or if you’re a fan of sweepstakes, until January 10th you can try your luck with the My Nintendo Family Fun Holiday Sweepstakes. There will only be 10 lucky winners, and the prize they’re going for is pretty massive. It includes a super prize package featuring Super Mario themed goodies from X Rocker, PDP and Club Mocchi Mocchi – TOMY! Prizes include an X Rocker Super Mario Floor Rocker Gaming Chair, Club Mocchi Mocchi Super Mushroom Mega Plush and a PDP 1-Up Glow in the Dark Nintendo Switch controller and travel case. Not a bad deal if you’re lucky enough to win it!
