Nintendo Download for October 5, 2017 – North America

After the massive release last week, we enter October with a pretty solid list.  While the Wii U eShop left for a last minute trip, the content available on the Switch and 3DS stands tall on its own.  Let’s see what is in store for us today!

There is another selection of high-quality titles launching on Switch.  We have the headliner Stardew Valley.  Start your new life with little to your name and a few coins and restore Stardew Valley back to normal.  Also, available today are Axiom Verge, Earth Atlantis, Tumblestone, Volgarr the Viking, Ninja Shodown, and ACA NEOGEO METAL SLUG X.  Available on October 6 is OXENFREE.  Finally, on October 10 are Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle and Tiny Barbarian DX. 

Over on the 3DS are a few retail titles available tomorrow October 6.  Those include Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions and LAYTON’S MYSTERY JOURNEY: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy.  Available today is Symphony of Eternity.  There are some Halloween deals to be had as well.  Check out My Nintendo for more information on getting some discounts on games focused on spooky themes.
