New Nintendo Downloads

It’s on like Donkey Kong

Well, this week’s Nintendo eShop line-up is certainly far more interesting than the last few. There’s Lone Survivor: The Director’s Cut on Wii U, some Hyrule Warriors DLC and another sizeable sale. This week also sees a double dose of Donkey Kong – throughout October Nintendo are releasing...

Two NES curios hit the UK Nintendo eShop

The handful of new games en route to the Nintendo eShop this Thursday are overshadowed somewhat by two unexpected additions to the Virtual Console library. Hot on the heels of last week’s Street Fighter 2010 comes another curio from Capcom – Mighty Final Fight. Released on NES in...

3DS Super Smash Bros. packs a wallop

Usually it’s an anticipated download-only title that headlines Nintendo’s weekly eShop schedule, but this week is slightly different – it’s Super Smash Bros. on 3DS that leads the charge. That said, it’s also something of a quiet week with just one other game and two Virtual Console releases...

Shock and awe – Teslagrad launches on Wii U this week

Rain Games’ Teslagrad (£13.99) leads the charge on the Wii U eShop this week, and yes that is a pun – it’s a puzzle-platformer based around electromagnetism. In this Norwegian-developed adventure you play as a small, nameless boy – a Teslamancer – who can control both electricity and...

Cubemen 2 – hip to be square?

It’s a moderately eventful week for the Nintendo eShop(s), if only because numerous Zelda games receive a price drop this Thursday to tie-in with Hyrule Warriors’ release later this month. As an extra bonus, if you have downloaded a Zelda title on either Wii U or 3DS you...

SteamWorld Dig ends Wii U eShop dry spell

After a month or so of very little, Image & Form ends the Wii U eShop dry spell with SteamWorld Dig. Although not a new game, its somewhat belated arrival on Wii U is no less welcome. A heady mixture of Metroid, Mr. Driller and Spelunky, we found...

It’s another quiet week for eShop releases

For a third week running Nintendo’s eShop roster is taking us back to the past. That’s to say, it’s another week filled with Virtual Console releases and very little else. On Wii U VC there’s HAL’s cult classic puzzler Adventures of Lolo (£3.49) and also the equally classic...

Another week, another Mega Man

For a second week running there isn’t much going on in the world of new Nintendo downloads. That’s as far as new releases are concerned at least – this week’s discounts, courtesy of Ubisoft, aren’t a bad little assortment. The Game Boy’s Mega Man 3 flies the flag...

Mega Man 2 and more form this week’s eShop offerings

Featuring such games as the Bomberman inspired Bombing Bastards and ‘90s influenced racer Midtown Crazy Race, last week’s eShop line up had something of a retro theme. This week that theme is even more predominant – Thursday sees the release of four Virtual Console titles and very little...
