Just two new arrivals head to the Nintendo eShop this week, both of which are for 3DS. Wii U owners aren’t even being treated to a wealth of discounts to make up for a lack of activity, with just two titles in line for a temporary price drop. Gravity Badgers (£2.49) and the Earthbound inspired Citizens of Earth (£6.69), if you’re curious.
Those two 3DS newcomers are Xenoblade Chronicles 3D (£39.99…eek!) and State of Play’s oriental papercraft puzzler KAMI (£2.39).
Good old GamesMaster magazine gave the world the first review of Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, where it walked away with an impressive 90%. In short: it’s a cracking conversion, but it lacks some of the Wii version’s grandeur on the smaller screen.
gamesTM and God is a Geek both gave it 9/10, while The Metro settled on an 8. “ Still the best Japanese role-player of the last generation, even if squeezing it down onto the New 3DS does it few favours” was their final verdict.
In addition to the aforementioned, a few 3DS titles are being discounted this week. The pick of the litter includes The Legend of Dark Witch – Chronicle 2D ACT (£2.99), PIX3D (£1.79), Rage of the Gladiator (£3.09), SpeedX 3D Hyper Edition (£0.89) and Monster Shooter (£1.60).
The 3DS version of Citizens of Earth is also being cut. £6.69, likewise.
