An intriguing assortment of new releases make their way to the Nintendo eShop this week. If none of these float your boat, a bunch of NES games are being offered at discount prices for NES Remix owners too.
To start us off there’s Neko Entertainmentâ€™s Wooden Sen’SeY (Â£8.00), a traditional platformer set in a â€œJapanese steam rock worldâ€. The Official Nintendo Magazine handed out 65% back in April. The PC version passed a lot of gamers by, but chances are that itâ€™ll perform a little better on Wii U.
Then thereâ€™s Super Toy Cars (Â£6.99) from Eclipse Games, which likewise was first released on PC earlier on this year. Although it didnâ€™t receive many reviews, the few that can be found online are mostly positive. Itâ€™s a â€˜table top racerâ€™ similar to Micro Machines and other games of yore, offering local play for 4 players, 12 tracks and 16 different vehicles that each have their own handling models. It looks alright, this.
Also arriving on Wii U this Thursday – the intriguing Master Reboot (Â£9.99) from Wales Interactive. This first-person exploration game promises both action and horror as you travel around a Soul Cloud – a place where memories are saved forever. Itâ€™s your job to piece your life back together. Like we said, itâ€™s rather intriguing.
Not one, not two but three Mega Man games are on their way to Wii U Virtual Console too. Mega Man 5 and Mega Man 6 will set you back Â£3.49 each, while fan-favourite Mega Man Battle Network will cost Â£6.29 – the standard price for GBA VC releases.
As mentioned, if you own NES Remix 1 or 2 youâ€™re eligible for some tempting discounts on various NES classics. The Wii U VC releases of Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda can be had for Â£2.44 until the end of the month. Dr. Mario, Excitebike, Clu Clu Land, Ice Hockey and Urban Champion are down to Â£1.74.
Over on 3DS thereâ€™s just one new release – Mojo Boneâ€™s Siesta Fiesta (Â£3.99). It looks set to offer a fresh twist on the likes of Break Out, Alleyway et al, with some suitably colourful visuals.
And as for 3DS discounts, PokÃ©mon Link: Battle! falling to Â£4.49 may be of note to some. Aqua Moto Racing 3D and Snow Moto Racing 3D meanwhile fall to Â£3.39 while Real Heroes: Firefighter 3D is being reduced Â£4.49. All of these discounts are available until the end of the month.
