Nintendo Download: Zombies, Monkeys and Vampires on the Go!

A fright filled Nintendo Download brings ports of Vampyr and Resident Evil 5 and 6. Not so fright filled though, is Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD.

A monkey in a ball?

Yes, Monkey Ball makes its triumphant return this week, in a re-release from Sega. Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD promises to update a Monkey Ball title that we last saw a few generations ago. It’s just one of the headlining games this week to hit the Switch, and the rest are a little more spooky.

Resident Evil 5 and the much more action-oriented 6 both appear for Nintendo’s console, and just in time for Halloween. Those looking for a little more of an RPG get a nice little treat too however, with Disgaea 4 Complete+.

And with Halloween right around the corner, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Vampyr. Released not long ago on other platforms, action-role player Vampyr casts players as a doctor infected with vampirism during the legendary Spanish Flu outbreak. It’s looking like it might be pretty sharp on Switch.

As usual, there’s a ton more releases too, so scroll down for the full list.
