This weekâ€™s Nintendo eShop line-up brings us the second 3DS PokÃ©mon game in the space of a week, with the first being last Fridayâ€™s PokÃ©mon Art Academy. You may have already played this one though – itâ€™s a Virtual Console release of PokÃ©mon Trading Card Game.
The Game Boy Color card battler is something of a cult classic, and the announcement that itâ€™s coming to Europe first has rattled the cages of American Nintendo fans. Tell us, guys, howâ€™s Shovel Knight?
We assume that the multiplayer and trading features have been omitted, but Â£4.49 seems a fair price regardless.
Over on the Wii Uâ€™s Virtual Console, Konamiâ€™s Pop’n Twinbee will be available from Thursday. The pastel-hued SNES shooter went down well back in the day. With a bit of luck, platforming spin-off Rainbow Bell Adventures isnâ€™t far behind.
A free demo of Jett Rocket II: The Wrath of Taikai – from Nano Assault Neo developers Shin’en Multimedia – is also due on 3DS this Thursday. This ties in nicely with the fact that the colourful platformer is being dropped in price to Â£4.25 until 24th July. It managed to gain a steady string of 7/10s when upon release.
The two NES Remix titles are being dropped in price too. Well, kind of – if you already own one, you can get 30% off the other. Thisâ€™ll bring the price down to a not-to-be-sniffed-at Â£6.29.
Thatâ€™s it for new Nintendo downloads this week. As a reminder though, Wii Sports Club is getting a retail release this Friday at around the Â£30 mark. Itâ€™s only retail release out this week, in fact.
