Summon your Halloween spirit with these costume ideas!

Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and…you get the idea. Halloween draws near! Are you looking for a costume that will give ‘em pumpkin to talk about? Consider trick-or-treating yourself to these fangtastic games  for inspiration.

Streets of Rage 4:

The classic side-scrolling beat-‘em-up series is back! After many years, the heroes of Wood Oak City are picking up the fight where they left off. Get ready to clean up the streets as the scruffy, blonde brawler, Axel Stone, or rock the Syndicate as the young, guitar-wielding Cherry Hunter.


Join the fight for the future in the world of Overwatch*. Choose your hero from a diverse cast of soldiers, scientists, and adventurers. Whether you choose a character’s classic look or pumpkin-spice-it-up with a Rare, Epic, or Legendary skin, there are lots of fashionable options to choose from!

Luigi’s Mansion 3:

Poor Luigi…all he wanted was his dream vacation. Instead, he’ll (reluctantly) have to be the hero to save Mario and his friends. Grab your Poltergust G-00 and get ready for some ghoulish fun! Luigi and Gooigi make a great team—in-game or as a costume duo.


Dress as the immortal Prince of the Underworld and get ready to defy some Greek gods. In Hades, you’ll wield the powers and mythic weapons of Olympus to break free from the clutches of the god of the dead. Grow stronger and unravel more of the story with each escape attempt.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate:

Legendary game worlds and fighters collide in the ultimate showdown. Battle it out locally** or online* with more characters, stages, music, and modes than past games in the series. Expand your roster with the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2 paid DLC*** for even more costume inspiration!

Yoshi’s Crafted World:

Jump into a Yoshi adventure in a world made of everyday objects—like boxes and paper cups! As Yoshi, you’ll leap up high, gulp down enemies, and set out on a treasure hunt to find all the different collectables. Get inspired by Yoshi’s Little Mouser, Bullet Bill, or Pirate Ship costumes!

Hollow Knight:

Beneath the fading town of Dirtmouth sleeps an ancient, forgotten kingdom. Many are lured below in search of riches, glory, or answers to old secrets. What draws you to the depth? The mysterious Hollow Knight? Another one of the kingdom’s inhabitants? Any of these creatures would make a fine costume.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses:

The Officers Academy is home to three houses: The Black Eagles, The Blue Lions, and The Golden Deer. As a professor, you are responsible for teaching your students and improving their skills in their academic lives and in battle. Consider dressing up in your favorite house’s uniform or other fun outfits!

Super Mario 3D All-Stars:

Experience three of Mario’s greatest adventures with the Super Mario 64™ game, the Super Mario Sunshine™ game, and the Super Mario Galaxy™ game. Whether you love Mario, his friends, or any of the other cast members, there are so many characters to inspire your Halloween costume.


Run-and-gun your way through hand-drawn cel animations, watercolor backgrounds, and original jazz recordings that make you feel like you’re in a 1930s cartoon. Express some old-timey fashion by dressing as King Dice or grab a friend and dress up as Cuphead and Mugman.


Humanity’s last chance against an otherworldly invasion is a special living weapon called the Legion. As a rookie officer in the elite police task force Neuron, you and your Legion will work together to solve cases and save humankind. Which member of Neuron will you dress as?


Jump in to be the last one standing in the free 100-player Battle Royale. Build huge forts, outwit your opponents, and earn your Victory. Whether you like taking on the competition alone or joining up with a team, you can get inspired by numerous fashionable outfits being worn on the battlefield!

Minecraft Dungeons:

Fight your way through an action-adventure game inspired by classic dungeon crawlers and set in the Minecraft universe. Whether you’re looking to tank your way through enemies, or fight with melee swings or ranged attacks, your armor choices can inspire your Halloween outfit!
