Nintendo eShop Update for March 26, 2015

Ready to head to the on your or today? I assure you if you do, it will be a rather quick trip. We’re in the midst of a lull. There are six new games, two for the 3DS, three for the Wii U, and one DSiWare title, but none of them are especially striking or more »

Nintendo eShop Update for March 19, 2015

Today is one of those days. We’re right in the cozy period where Nintendo likes to release a lot of first party games. That means the online-exclusive offerings fade away.

You know what time it is. It’s that day. We’re getting an update. There are nine new and releases this week, which is pretty odd if you think about it. I mean, Code Name: STEAM comes out tomorrow.

Nintendo eShop Update for March 5, 2015

Today is a momentous update. It’s the first time we’re really seeing and cross-buy promotions in effect! Both Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars and OlliOlli are cross-buy games.

Nintendo eShop Update for February 19, 2015

I’m going to go ahead and phone in today’s eShop update. I feel like I’m justified, because Nintendo is phoning it in too. There are only five new games this week, so nothing distracts from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. All we get are 2 games and 1 game. There aren’t even any appealing eShop more »

Nintendo eShop Update for February 12, 2015

Today’s is practically here only in spirit. Yes, some and games were released, but it was a cursory gesture. Why? The New 3DS XL, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate are being released tomorrow. Nintendo wants you to focus on those, not eShop exclusives. So we only get 5 more »

Nintendo eShop Update for February 5, 2015

Today is an odd kind of update. It’s really more about the sales, rather than the new games. There are 2 and 5 games newly arrived on the stores, but you can tell it’s a lackluster week when the only things appealing are virtual console games and a port of a mobile title. Not that more »

Nintendo eShop Update for January 29, 2015

Punch-Out!! on Wii U is great, with one exception

When Nintendo announced digital Wii games on the Wii U eShop, I was pretty excited. Mostly because Punch-Out!!, one of the Wii’s low-key greats, was on its way for a great price. Next Level Games has done great work every time it had a Nintendo property to play with, and Punch-Out!! is no exception. The more »

It’s Thursday, which means it’s one of those days. An update kind of affair. There are six games available right now, with 3 on the and 5 on the . Did that not make sense? Let me elaborate – some of the games are multiplatform. It’s also a rather big sale week on the eShop. more »
