The Chase is on (the eShop, this week)

Last week’s eShop update saw two of Nintendo’s big winter hits make an appearance – Paper Mario: Color Splash and Mario Party: Star Rush. This week is far, far, quieter in comparison with no Wii U games or Virtual Console releases whatsoever.

This leaves us with just three 3DS titles. Chase: Cold Case Investigations – Distant Memories should be worth a look, though. It’s developed partly by staff from the now defunct studio CiNG, best known for Hotel Dusk: Room 215. The story sees two detectives reopen a five-year-old case that involved a fatal explosion.

Handily, Nintendo Points can be redeemed against it. For 20 Gold Points and it can be yours for £4.80, instead of £6.

Then we have Disney Magical World 2 (£34.99) which also gets a retail release this week. The six themed worlds include Frozen, The Little Mermaid and Lilo & Stich and you can also harvest a field with Winnie the Pooh and go fishing with Donald Duck. A highly comical experience, no doubt.


Finally, there’s Circle Entertainment’s retro RPG Ash (£3.99). Nintendo Life gave it a miserable 3/10 due to a game breaking glitch which forces the 3DS to reset, so consider yourself warned.

As for discounts, the following Wii U games are on offer: Another World – 20th Anniversary Edition (£3.59), Never Alone (£2.59), Chompy Chomp Chomp Party (£4.49) and the 2.5D one-on-one brawler STEEL RIVALS (£4.49).

Another World is also discounted on 3DS, again to £3.59. That’s joined by Jett Rocket II – The Wrath of Taikai (£5.70), Gunslugs (89p), Gunslugs 2 (£2.19), Rage of the Gladiator (£3.09), SpeedX 3D Hyper Edition (89p) and others from Joindots and Gamelion.
