Euro Nintendo eShop Downloads Pack Big Titles This Week
Nintendo is releasing another power week of titles on the European eShop with numerous 3DS games and one notable Wii U title. What a perfect way to celebrate the 2 year anniversary of the 3DS launch.
So, first off, Lego City Undercover will be available for download on Nintendo Wii U for €59.99. for once, developer TT Games doesn’t use a known license, but puts its own character in the fray, by the name of Chase McCain. He’ll hunt down Rex Fury in an open environment called Lego City. It’s like Grand Theft Auto with building blocks.
On Nintendo 3DS, you’ll be able to get a series of prime titles. Most importantly, Luigi’s Mansion 2 brings a long-awaited sequel to the eShop for €44.99. Suck up ghosts with a vacuum cleaner and solve puzzles in the process. Capcom does a double dip with the digital release of Resident Evil Revelations and Resident Evil The Mercenaries 3D. Revelations costs €29.99, which is a fair price for one of our favorite overlooked games. Luckily, it’s also getting a console remake. For just €9.99 you can purchase The Mercenaries., which focuses more on action and mowing down hordes of atrocities. Ubisoft finally releases Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell 3D to the eShop for a price of €19.99, which should satisfy the taste for stealth action for a while. Square Enix launches their overlooked RPG Heroes of Ruin for €24.99. Though it is a rather dated concept, perhaps a few dedicated fans will appreciate the simple quest solving and character enhancement with loot, alone or with friends.
Think that’s all? Nope; we still have the release of alluring rhythm platform hybrid HarmoKnight and at a soft €14.99 price at that. Another great looking title is Code of Princess, which mixes side-scrolling action with RPG elements and a distinct anime charm. It has a €29.99 price tag, but that gives you an appealing cel-shaded brawler, the likes of Odin Sphere, but with tons more collectibles and content to unlock. Don’t forget to download the Fire Emblem: Awakening demo as well.
Smaller 3DS games this week include 50 Classic Games 3D, which is exactly what it sounds like. Play games like Chess, Sudoku or Mahjong for just €4.99. At €4.99 also, the original handheld Harvest Moon will allow players to relive the farm nostalgia as it once was; with animals to feed, crops to grow and people to love.
