Nintendo eShop Update
With all the big news of coming titles coming to the eShop in the coming weeks there is only a hand full of titles sneaking on to the eShop today. There is a new demo, a classic arcade title on the Virtual Console, and a nifty new Google powered app. Here is what hit the eShop today.
Naruto Powerful Shippuden (Demo -3DS) – A new side-scrolling from the folks at Namco-Bandai. You either play as Naruto or Rock Lee in a colorful crazy world. Both characters are available to try out in the demo. The game will launch at retail on March 15th.
Dig Dug – 3DS – Another Namco-Bandai title, Dig Dug makes it’s way to the 3DS so you can experience the NES port of the arcade classic. Take control of Dig Dug as you battle the Pooka and Fygars and hit that top score. The title will set you back $4.99.
Wii Street U – Wii U – this app in conjunction with Google, has you taking in great views from 70 locations around the world, courtesy of Google Street View. The app is available free of charge on the Wii U eShop.
World Heroes 2 Jet – Wii/Wii U – This title is hitting the Wii Virtual console, it can also be downloaded and played via the Wii menu on the Wii U. World Heroes 2 Jet was my go to fighting game when the Street Fighter 2 cabinet was taken at my local arcade. Featuring 16 fighters, this is one of SNK’s best fighters. The game will run you 900 points.
On the 3DS there is a 3D video download for Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, to see how good the Wii game looks on the handheld. The Wii game was fantastic, giving a true unforgiving difficulty, hopefully that stays in the 3DS version. Don’t forget that Bit Trip Saga is also on sale starting this week $9.99 (originally $14.99).
