A long weekend is almost upon us. Nintendo fans shouldn’t worry if it turns out to be a wet one â€“ another four releases are lined up for the Switch, while the 3DS eShop sees a sizeable sale.
Even the Wii U gets a look in, with two Konami Turbografx Virtual Console re-releases – Final Soldier (Â£6.29) and Soldier Blade (Â£5.39). Final Soldier is the better of two, if memory serves.
Those four Switch releases are the Tetris alike ACA NeoGeo Puzzled (Â£6.29), mobile conversion Piczle Lines DX (Â£13.99), the well-received 2D intergalactic adventure forma.8 (Â£8.99), and the eight episode strong Minecraft: Story Mode – The Complete Adventure (Â£39.99).
On a related note, the Wii U version of forma.8 is permanently down to Â£8.99 from today, presumably to put it in line with the Switch iteration.
ARMS’ Global Testpunch is also back until 27th August, while a demo of PokkÃ©n Tournament DX is now live ahead of its 22nd September launch.
The last Switch happening is a temporary discount on Astro Duel Deluxe. The hyperactive shooter is down to Â£7.55 until 27th August.
On 3DS, PokÃ©mon Red, Blue and Yellow are down to Â£5.75 with linked Nintendo Account (Â£7.19 without).
SEGA’s 3D Mega Drive remasters are down in price too. The likes of 3D Gunstar Heroes, 3D Streets of Rage 2, 3D Out Run and 3D Space Harrier are down to Â£2.02 a piece, while 3D Ecco the Dolphin will set you back a mere Â£1.84. Nobody likes Ecco the Dolphin.
Loads of Rising Star games are also due a price drop, including BIT.TRIP Saga (Â£4.49), Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns (Â£8.99), Hometown Story (Â£7.49) and Virtue’s Last Reward (Â£9.99). Rising Star’s PONCHO on Wii U is down to Â£3.99 meanwhile.
Next week: Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Astro Bears Party and Culdcept Revolt.
