Nintendo Download for December 27, 2018 – North America

2018 is coming to a close next week.  We’ve had quite a year, with plenty of games releasing on Switch with minimal titles on the 3DS and Wii U.  However, this week is probably the smallest we’ve seen all year.  To close out the year, only eight new games and a few demos.  There are some new activities and sales to check out, so be sure to see the details below.

Be sure to see all the details along with the prices (in the US), just below the screenshots. If you plan on downloading any of these games, let us know in the comments!
