While Nintendo fans may be in low spirits about the Wii-U ceasing production, the Nintendo 3DS library is sure to offer plenty comfort for November. Look forward to an updated Mario Party where turns happen simultaneously, an online multiplayer zombie survivor and a side-scrolling fighter featuring famous cartoons. If none of these tickle your fancy then there’s always the most pre-ordered game in Nintendo History that is Pokemon Sun and Moon.
No time to waste. Have a look at the best Nintendo games coming soon in November!
5. Ice Station Z
Publisher: Wobbly Tooth
Developer: Wobbly Tooth
Release date: November 3
For fans of the zombie survival and survival challenges in general. This digital 3DS exclusive pits players in an open world setting against zombies while keeping that health and stamina bar in good standing. Ice Station Z features multiplayer up to eight per game for both online and local play. Similar to the PC hit H1Z1, players scavenge through a barren area in search of supplies, protection, and allies they can hopefully trust.

4. Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers
Publisher: GameMill Entertainment
Developer: GameMill Entertainment
Release date: November 8
Animation fans, rejoice! The time to play as Uncle Grandpa at your easiest convenience will be available soon. Since the success of Super Smash Bros. other genre-specific action games have been released. This time it’s characters from the Cartoon Network channel and it’s a bit different than the Smash Bros. formula. Rather than a stage where characters fight each other, they team up in the style of classic arcade games like Double Dragon and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time. The roster includes characters from animated shows like Adventure Time, Amazing World of Gumball, Steven Universe and more.

3. Harvest Moon Skytree Village
Release date: November 8
Time to learn a little gaming history. The original Harvest Moon series has actually been going under a new name, Story of Seasons, since 2013. Harvest Moon Skytree Village is a brand new farming game under a recognizable name. You might be skeptical at the sound of that, but it’s just an interesting gaming fact worth sharing, especially if you’ve been a fan of previously known Harvest Moon games in the past. Regardless of this change, Harvest Moon Skytree Village is nothing short of adorable, a keystone standard for any farming simulation game.

2. Mario Party Star Rush
Release date: November 4
There’s some tension tied to the nostalgia of the Mario Party series. Memories of stolen stars and swapped coins, other kinds of needlessly random shenanigans… Yet, along with those past frustrations, there also exists an addiction. Mario Party, as hellish as it is, never stops being fun in its own weird way. With features like player recruitment and simultaneous turns, Mario Party Star Rush may entice players to roll the dice once more.

1. Pokemon Sun & Moon
Release date: November 18
Never before has a Pokemon game been so widely advertised and discussed on social media. Disregarding remakes and expansion releases, Pokemon Sun & Moon will be the eighth Pokemon game to be released. For the past few months, GameFreak has been releasing videos on what to expect and they continue to do so as of last week. For players who want to stay surprised like when they first saw Charmeleon evolve, it’s best to stay clear from…Well, the internet. Good luck.
