🛍 Monday, October 24 — Sunday, October 30
You can tell it's nearly Halloween — with nearly 50 titles coming to the eShop over the next seven days, a good chunk of them are spooky (and rated 'M for mature').
I've gone over all them and listed each one for you below. You'll find a quick description of what every game is, plus a link to more information, where you'll find screenshots, a trailer, and more details.
As for highlights, last week saw Mario + Rabbids and Persona 5 Royal land on Nintendo's hybrid — and this week the long-awaited Bayonetta 3 lands, along with Factorio, Resident Evil Village Cloud, and Oddworld: Soulstorm.
