Nintendo Download: Your Letter Has Arrived!

At long last, Hogwarts Legacy arrives on the Switch this week, along with a pretty nice selection of indies and smaller-scaled releases.

Magical

Okay, so it missed Halloween, but it’s still pretty nice that Hogwarts Legacy is about to launch for the Switch. The game places players in the legendary school for the magical arts, from the Harry Potter series, for an open-world of action and adventure. We haven’t seen all that much of the Nintendo port, but though it’s likely a little ‘less’ in the visuals department as compared to other platforms, it still might be worth your time. That’s especially true if you’re a fan of the property of course.

There’s quite a bit more this week though, than just witchcraft and wizardry. Two Double Dragon classics arrive for the Switch as well, including both the SNES’ Super Double Dragon and Double Dragon Advance, which originally appeared on the GBA. If you like old school beat ’em ups, both are solid entries in the franchise.

And that’s not all there is either, as the Booster Course Wave 6 hits the track for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, plus fans see the arrival of Atari’s Berzerk: Recharged and Catan: Console Edition. Those are just the highlights however, as there’s a ton more that’s hitting too. So scroll on down and check it all out.
