Super Smash Bros. gets a summer discount

We were holding off writing this week’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 £25.99 on 3DS and £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 (£1.79), children’s tie-in Mike the Knight and The Great Gallop (£19.99) and Fire Emblem Fates: Map 7 Hidden Truths 1 + 2 (£4.09) while 2.5D platformer Twin Robots (£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 (£4.99), Darksiders II (£9.99), Citizens of Earth (£4.00), Funk of Titans (£4.00), Infinity Runner (£3.50), Paranautical Activity (£3.99) and Spy Chameleon (£2.19).

As for the 3DS, discount highlights include AeternoBlade (£4.49), Jett Rocket II: The Wrath of Taikai (£5.70) and Farming Simulator 14 (£5.00).

The rest of the games due to a price drop have a whiff of shovelware about them – we’re confident in saying that Life with Horses 3D isn’t aimed at the likes of you and I, especially priced at £17.09. And that’s with a discount, unbelievably.

Out next week – Mighty No. 9, finally.
