Costume Quest 2 To Release On European eShop This Week

Just in the nick of time for Halloween, Costume Quest 2 has been confirmed for release this week on the European eShop. Earlier this year, developer Double Fine announced the devilish RPG would be landing on the Wii U eShop this October, but with only three days left of the month, it was getting scarily close to missing out on the spooky season. Have no fear though as Nintendo UK have confirmed it will arrive in Europe this Thursday, October 30, along with the new Animal Crossing themes for the 3DS and other downloadable games.

Check out the official PC launch trailer above for a better look at Costume Quest 2, where Wren and Reynold return with a bunch of friends in tow to help save Halloween from an evil dentist, hell-bent on taking out the all fun of the trick-or-treating event. Nintendo of America haven’t sent word on a release, but we should receive confirmation of its arrival in the eShop download newsletter later this week.
