A month containing three Nintendo releases? We must be getting near to Christmas or something.

October didn't exactly see the big 'N' bringing the big guns out - a Wii U re-release, a weird toy hybrid, and a limited-time remix freebie are hardly hitting Breath of the Wild heights. But it was good to see some activity on the firsty party launch schedule, nonetheless.

Elsewhere in October we received a pair of excellent roguelike action-platformers, which is always likely to get this writer's attention. That they managed to drag me away from Spelunky 2 for any time at all is impressive.

We also received a wonderful, heartfelt retro platformer that packs a real emotional wallop.

Have you been playing anything else on Switch through October? Let us know in the comments below.
