While there were a bunch of surprising releases yesterday that surely got you all excited, there’s still plenty of new content on the Nintendo eShop this week. Some of these we talked about previously in the Nintendo Direct Mini breakdown, but beyond that, this is the week we finally get the full release Pikmin 3 and a slew of great indie games.
Something important to note: Nintendo is currently offering a 7-day free trial of Nintendo Switch Online. This is redeemable via My Nintendo for zero Platinum Points, and the offer ends November 2nd at 8:59 PT.
Unless otherwise stated, all discussed content is available as of today, October 29th.
PIKMIN 3 FINALLY COMES HOME
The wait is over. After the original Wii U release in 2013 and a number of DLC content packs released throughout the following year, the Pikmin series went dark on home consoles. The Nintendo Switch release of Pikmin 3 Deluxe includes all of the content from the Wii U release and adds a new prologue and epilogue featuring Captain Olimar and Louie, and adds cooperative play to Story Mode.
Pikmin 3 Deluxe will be available on October 30th. A free demo is available now.
PART TIME UFO INVADES
Originally released in 2018 on mobile platforms, this delightful action/puzzle title from the makers of Kirby is out now. The Switch version a new Tower of Infinity mode, where players build the tallest tower they can, and adds two-player local coop, allowing a friend to easily join the fun.
This week was pretty packed, with 42 new titles available to download on the Nintendo eShop. That’s not even counting the demo for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, or the new Pokémon Sword & Shield expansion The Crown Tundra. Explore the new offerings, and let us know what titles you ended up snagging.
