We were holding off writing this weekâ€™s UK eShop line-up, thinking that Nintendo may have an E3 surprise or two in store.
With their Nintendo Treehouse event now over, the only eShop surprise they had lined-up for us was a 35% discount on Super Smash Bros, making it Â£25.99 on 3DS and Â£32.49 on Wii U. Nintendo Account owners can get an further 10% off, too.
The eShop pickings are slim this week, with no Virtual Console releases whatsoever. The 3DS gets the rogue-like permadeath platformer Gunslugs (Â£1.79), childrenâ€™s tie-in Mike the Knight and The Great Gallop (Â£19.99) and Fire Emblem Fates: Map 7 Hidden Truths 1 + 2 (Â£4.09) while 2.5D platformer Twin Robots (Â£4.49) hits Wii U.
Developed by Ratalaika, Twin Robots has a focus on local co-op – players take control of one robot each, helping one another to escape a futuristic prison.
Things are a tad more exciting where discounts are concerned, with the following prolific Wii U games on offer: Legend of Kay Anniversary (Â£4.99), Darksiders II (Â£9.99), Citizens of Earth (Â£4.00), Funk of Titans (Â£4.00), Infinity Runner (Â£3.50), Paranautical Activity (Â£3.99) and Spy Chameleon (Â£2.19).
As for the 3DS, discount highlights include AeternoBlade (Â£4.49), Jett Rocket II: The Wrath of Taikai (Â£5.70) and Farming Simulator 14 (Â£5.00).
The rest of the games due to a price drop have a whiff of shovelware about them – weâ€™re confident in saying that Life with Horses 3D isnâ€™t aimed at the likes of you and I, especially priced at Â£17.09. And thatâ€™s with a discount, unbelievably.
Out next week – Mighty No. 9, finally.
