eShop Update: Minis Moving into a Revelation
There isn’t a a lot of offerings this week on the the Nintendo eShop but what is there is extremely solid. On the 3DS this week we have the launch of Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis March Again. This next entry in the Mario vs. Donkey Kong franchise will run you $9.99, but as an early birthday gift to myself I have already nabbed it and have played about 20 or so levels and I’m in love. If you like games like puzzle games or have an affliction for games like Pipe Mania or the hacking mini game from the original Bioshock (which should have been a standalone downloadable title) then you will eat this up. The Wii U is getting a demo next Tuesday for Resident Evil Revelations, the HD port of the 3DS title. Revelations is the closest we have had to a proper Resident Evil title since RE4. Resident Evil Revelations was fantastic on the 3DS and looked stunning to boot. If you bought Resident Evil 6 and hated it, trade up and nab this game when it hits May 21st. Hitting the Wii U are two Virtual Console titles, Solomon’s Key and Xevious. Both titles will run you $4.99. Two other items of interest, if you are member of Club Nintendo, for 200 coins you can snag one of my favorite and possibly one of the greatest RPG’s of the SNES era, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Kirby’s Adventure on the Wii U Virtual Console 30 cent trial promotion is in it’s last week. On May 15th it will be replaced with Super Metroid so act quickly. For all that I covered an anything I didn’t always feel free to head over to the Official Nintendo page.
