It’s that time of week! Yes, it’s time to reveal the latest eShop offerings. What goodies lie in store in this latest roundup? This week’s highlight is none other than Bayonetta 3, the highly anticipated and somewhat controversial sequel in the popular witch-based series.
(By the way, you can hear our thoughts on the whole voice actor debate in our latest Pure Nintendo Podcast.)
It wouldn’t be late October without some Halloween-related content. A few games have special spooky activities plans, from Fall Guys to Disney Dreamlight Valley.
There’s plenty happening on the eShop this week, so what are you waiting for? Check out the full list of new games below. What we you be playing this weekend?
- Bayonetta 3 – Get ready for a devilishly good time in one of Bayonetta’s most full-bodied adventures yet! In this new, over-the-top climax action game, everyone’s favorite witch, the fabulous Bayonetta, must face a mysterious group of evil manmade bioweapons using her signature weapons and time-slowing Witch Time ability. Tap into new powers like Demon Masquerade, which lets you channel one of Bayonetta’s demons, and save the day across new locales like the streets of Tokyo and the mountains of China. Plus, play as new character Viola, who fights with a sword and a capricious demon companion named Cheshire. You’ll also meet a virtual coven of other Bayonettas, each more fabulous than the last. Bayonetta 3 will be available on Oct. 28 in Nintendo eShop.
- Flight or Fright – OBAKEIDORO! is an asymmetrical multiplayer game for up to four players, where humans have three minutes to work together to escape a pursuing monster. You can also play as the monster yourself and use your glide and track skills to catch the humans! Monster players watch out: Humans can do more than just run away, like try and turn the tides with their trusty Lantern Attack. Until Nov. 1 at 11:59 p.m. PT, Nintendo Switch Online and Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack members can try the full game for free! Your save data for the Game Trial is not deleted when the trial ends, so you can continue where you left off if you purchase the game later. Plus, save 50% on OBAKEIDORO! in Nintendo eShop until Nov. 13 at 11:59 p.m. PT.
