Phoenix Wright, Final Fight and Jotun: Valhalla Edition hit the eShop(s) this week

It’s the Wii U that sees the bulk of new arrivals this week. The 3DS isn’t far behind if we count Virtual Console releases, though – all three SNES Final Fight games hit New 3DS this Thursday at £7.19 apiece, complete with a ‘buy two get the third three’ deal.

A little out your price range? Good news – a whole bunch of SEGA 3D titles see a price drop this Thursday, including Street of Rage and its superlative sequel for £2.20. The others include Out Run, Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master, Gunstar Heroes, Space Harrier, Fantasy Zone and Hang On.

One of the 3DS’s other big hitters comes courtesy of Capcom – Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice for £24.99. That’s also joined by Circle’s Kingdom’s Item Shop, which sounds suspiciously similar to Level-5’s Weapon Shop De Omasse.

Jotun Valhalla Edition

Those Wii U releases, then. Jotun: Valhalla Edition (£10.79) is perhaps the highlight, being a striking looking top-down adventure drenched in Norse mythology. The Kickstarter-backed indie is also due on Xbox One this week, incidentally.

There’s also the Double Fine published 140 (£5.59), which graced other formats last week. Reviews of this abstract platformer are thin on the ground, but early word has it – via Spanish site Mondo Xbox – that it’s a little short and suffers from collision detection problems.

Vektor Wars (£7.99) is something we don’t see often on Wii U – a first-person shooter. This too is of the abstract variety, taking inspiration from Battlezone and other wireframe/vector classics. Nintendo Life thought it was pretty good, handing out a 7/10.


This leaves us with the maze-based puzzler Rorrim (£4.09) and visual novel Alice in Wonderland (£3.78), which is clearly aimed at the youngsters.

As for Wii U discounts, Mighty No. 9 getting a small cut may turn some heads – it’s down from £17.99 to £14.39 until 15th September.

O2 Games’ Baila Latino, Fit Music for Wii U and Luv Me Buddies Wonderland fall to £11.90 each, while Joindots’ Dragon Skills, Island Flight Simulator and Sweetest Thing are also due a drop to £6.11, £5.39 and £3.84 respectively.

Above average platformer Canvaleon meanwhile gets a permanent drop to £4.49.
