Nintendo has a line up of games and activities to help fans celebrate the spooky season! They’ve made an easy-access list of all scary games to play for Halloween. This includes the recently released Luigi’s Mansion and Severed for the Nintendo 3DS. Also featured for the Switch are Night in the Woods, Flipping Death, and Whispering Willows that all came out this year.
The new Luigi’s Mansion plot revolves around Luigi winning a mansion in a contest he never entered and must work his way through the home to defeat the ghosts within. Severed is about playing a one-armed warrior named Sasha who wields a living sword and is trekking through a nightmare world in search of her family. Night in the Woods is about a college dropout returning home to find things have changed and there is something mysterious living in the woods. In Flipping Death you play recently deceased Penny who can traverse between the worlds of the living and the dead and must solve the mystery of her demise. And finally, in Whispering Willows you play Elena who can converse with the dead and is on a mission in a mysterious mansion to find her father.
You can visit Play Nintendo to download free pumpkin carving stencils. These include Goomba and Luigi’s faces. You’ll also find other Halloween themed activities. There are free downloadable graphics to create a Boo paper-chain garland. Still deciding on a costume? There is a quiz to match up your personality to a Mushroom Kingdom character. There are also quizzes to see if you can identify monsters from various games, and how good you are at catching ghosts.
There are various polls such as what ghost from Luigi’s Mansion you find the scariest, and which character you think would host the spookiest Haunted House.
You can visit My Nintendo for more Halloween fun! There is an October calendar and Halloween- themed wallpapers. You can also redeem points there for a haunted night of gaming that Nintendo is promising for October 31st. They will have more details in the near future!
