Run and Gun and Run In This Week’s Nintendo Euro eShop
Nintendo is back to serving all its platforms in this week’s downloadable titles on the European eShop. Larger titles are available for the Nintendo Wii U, while other platforms receive some smaller or older games.
Most importantly, Toki Tori 2 releases for €14.99, with a 10% discount for a few weeks. Players guide a lovely little chick through a platform title filled with puzzles, reminiscent of Metroidvania games, but cuter. That is, however, the only Wii U title. Owners of a good old Wii can download another Neo Geo title with Shock Troopers 2nd Squad. This side-scrolling run and gun game is part Contra and part Metal Slug, but in semi-3D space. Reliving 1998 will cost 900 Wii points.
For Nintendo 3DS, Monster High Skulltimate Roller Maze is the largest title, offering a full racing game for €29.99. Monstrous teen girls put on roller skates and participate in a brutal fight for the finish line, with power-ups and all. Not enough side-scrolling action? Never fear, Alien Chaos 3D will have some classic platform elements with guns for €3.99. Going back to 8-bit style, Witch & Hero offers a duality of good and evil that must work together to complete their quest. Going on this adventure costs €4. Finally, Mega Man 3 continues the classic re-releases and serves its run and gun action for €4.99.
This week’s DSiWare is called Ah! Heaven, which offers players a platform title with oriental scripture. It’s available for €1.99.
