Meanwhile, tis the season .. for dancing. Another year, another Just Dance entry! The 2024 edition brings 40 songs to the table, allowing five players to connect and dance locally or online. To help you get started, there’s a month’s worth of free content for Switch players, increasing the playlist immensely.
Of course it’s Halloween shortly, meaning we’re celebrating all things horror-themed in gaming. Cult of the Lamb is worth noting, with free play until October 31 and a 40% discount if you purchase the game before then.
