More Mega Man for Wii U Virtual Console

If it wasn’t for Capcom’s RPG duo Mega Man Battle Network 6: Cybeast Falzar / Gregar for Wii U Virtual Console, it would be an exceedingly quiet week for the UK Nintendo eShop.


The two Battle Network games are due Thursday at £6.29 a piece. First released on GBA in 2006, they gained above average scores from the likes of Nintendo Power and Famitsu. Most complaints stemmed from the fact that a lot of content was recycled from previous Battle Network games, with little improvement aside some new customisation options. Those who owned the previous instalments were still advised to give them a playthrough though as it’s here that the story finally comes to a conclusion.

The 3DS sees the rest of the week’s new arrivals. There’s a Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight demo due this Thursday, along with free Rosalina’s Yukata and Peach’s Yukata DLC for Nintendo presents: New Style Boutique 2 – Fashion Forward. Nintendo’s press release simply states that they’ll “extend your wardrobe”.


Final Fantasy Explorers – which has received some encouragingly positive previews – will be available to pre-purchase from Thursday too, way ahead of its 28th January launch date. Those who cough up £29.99 for the digital release will receive a free pixel art Final Fantasy 3DS theme.

It’s worth bearing in mind though that Amazon has the physical version for £23.99 currently. We’re pretty sure that most Final Fantasy fans and collectors would rather go physical for this one.


A reasonably sizeable sale finishes the week off. Wii U discounts include (take a deep breath) Runbow (£8.24), Bombing Bastards (£4.49), Spot the Differences: Party! (£2.69), Cubemen 2 (£3.49), Family Tennis SP (£2.99), Unepic (£4.40), FullBlast (£2.69), Rock ‘N Racing Off Road DX (£4.45), Rock Zombie (£3.59), Kung Fu Rabbit (£1.79), Puddle (£2.83), Tetrobot & Co. (£3.74) and Wooden Sen’SeY (£3.20). Most of these are worth a look, especially Unepic and Runbow.

Then on 3DS the following are lined up for a price cut: Kung Fu Rabbit (£1.79), Fantasy Pirates (99p), Toys vs. Monsters (99p) and Van Helsing sniper Zx100 (£2.99).

We still love the fact that Van Helsing sniper Zx100‘s launch price was £6.66.
