Halloween is still two weeks away but that hasn’t stopped Nintendo, and various other publishers, from discounting the spookiest games in their back catalogue in eager anticipation.
Before we rattle off everything on offer in the Halloween eShop sale, let’s take a look at the new stuff hitting New 3DS, 3DS and Wii U this week.
Owners of Nintendo’s handheld are currently enjoying the PokÃ©mon Sun & PokÃ©mon Moon: Special Demo, which went live earlier today.
It’s well worth a download as Ash-Greninja, the PokÃ©mon that appears alongside the hero Ash in the animated TV series, can be carried over to the full game.
Rhythm Paradise Megamix also hits the 3DS eShop later this week for Â£24.99, which is actually a fiver cheaper than a physical copy from Amazon. Now there’s a thing. That’s joined by the stylus flicking Ping Pong Trick Shot (Â£1.99) and the Pang-alike Pirate Pop Plus (Â£4.09) for New 3DS.
Those who own the Wii U version of Pirate Pop Plus can grab the handheld iteration for gratis, and visa versa. Nice to see a bit of eShop cross-buy support.
Then on Wii U there’s the pun-tastic arcade shooter Super Destronaut 2: Go Duck Yourself (Â£1.79), stone age puzzler Fire: Ungh’s Quest (Â£8.99) and a VC release of Project Zero 2: Wii Edition (Â£17.99).
Right, let’s get stuck into the Halloween deals, all of which are in effect from Thursday until 3rd November. There’s bound to be something that tickles your fancy.
