Nintendo fans must proceed at extreme velocity this week, as the Nintendo Download features Sonic Forces. Sega apparently doesn't want Mario Odyssey hogging all of the spotlight as the Blue Blur is making his return to consoles on November 7th, in a game that combines the gameplay elements of Sonic Colors with the 2D-3D switching of Sonic Generations. I'm holding out hope that this will be a truly good Sonic game for once, but I'll probably be getting it regardless so I can use the character creator to make Coldsteel the Hedgehog. Nothing personnel, kid.
Sanic isn't the only headliner this week; Farming Simulator Nintendo Switch Edition arrives on the same day, Perception delivers some spooky thrills and the Wii U gets a couple Virtual Console offerings with Tomeling in Trouble and Power Golf. Hit the break for the full digital cornucopia for this week.

In addition to video games available at retail stores, Nintendo also offers a variety of content that people can download directly to their systems. Nintendo adds new games weekly to Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo Switch console, the Wii U console and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.
Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service that features a wide variety of content, including new and classic games, applications and demos. Users can add money to their account balances by using a credit card or purchasing a Nintendo eShop Card at a retail store and entering the code from the card. All funds from one card must be loaded in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch, Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can be used in any Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single Nintendo Account.
Customers in the U.S. and Canada ages 18 and older can also link a PayPal account to their Nintendo Account to purchase digital games and content for the Nintendo Switch system both on-device and from the Nintendo website. Once the accounts are linked, users may also use PayPal as a payment option when buying digital content for the Wii U or Nintendo 3DS family systems from the Nintendo website.
The Wii Shop Channel offers games and applications and uses Wii Points, which can be purchased via the Wii Shop Channel.
Remember that Nintendo Switch, Wii U, Wii, New Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL, and Nintendo 2DS feature parental controls that let adults manage some of the content their children can access. Nintendo 3DS players who register a Nintendo Network ID gain access to free-to-start games and free game demos from Nintendo eShop, and also get the latest news and information direct from Nintendo.
