eShop Update: Mega Man and Zelda Galore
This week is one of most anticipated on eShop in quite a while. First we will start with the 3DS and the due of The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons & Ages. Both titles are available at a great price for a limited time. The pinnacle of top down Zelda’s, each title is available for $4.99 until June 20th. Both titles still retain their connectivity, so by completing one, you gain special events in the other. These are two titles that I never had the pleasure of playing, but that is about to change. Also on the 3DS we get The Denpa Men 2: Beyond the Waves. The Denpa Men are all around you, and you must use the 3DS camera to catch them. Once caught the Denpa Men help you across this lovable RPG. The Denpa Men 2: Beyond the Waves will run you $11.99. Seeing all this great stuff coming to the 3DS just reminded me that the 2GB SD card that came with my handheld is pretty full, and I may want to invest in a larger one. Over on the Wii U we have another week of Virtual Console deals. The deal this week includes my favorite Mega Man title and favorite SNES title of all time, Mega Man X. That’s right, Mega Man X has hit the Wii U Virtual Console! The title is available for $7.99, but if you want there is a deal. If you but either Ghouls and Ghost (another awesome Capcom title) or Mega Man X, you get the other title 50% off. The best way to go about this deal is to buy Ghouls and Ghost, which will run you $4.99, then snag Mega Man X for 3.99, making it a great purchase of $9. If you do it the other way and purchase Mega Man first you come out a little under with the total being $10.50. Save the $1.50 and do it the first way, but what ever you do by Mega Man X, I can’t tell you how many times I have played that game and every time, I have loved it. One last thing, there will be a demo for the 3DS title Project X Zone: Imperial, which is an action, strategy RPG from Namco Bandai. What is interesting about Project X Zone is it’s cast of characters from different publishers. We have characters from Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Virtua Fighter, Mega Man X, Devil May Cry, Tekken, Dead Rising, Xenosaga, Darkstalkers, Space Channel 5, Valkyria Chronicles, and more. It is a fusion of great characters from some stellar franchises, with some great looking sprites to boot. The demo will be hitting the 3DS eShop on June 4th. Check out the amazing trailer for Project X Zone: Imperial below.
