Alright so no, Nintendo’s not really having a fire sale on the eShop, but there are not only some good games this week but some insanely cheap ones. Plus it’s Friday and we’ve writing serious stories all week, I want to write a silly one alright?
So what can you look forward to then? Let’s start with the 3DS which just has the one game in: Picross e2; if you like Picross you’ll like this one. The more exciting updates are on the Wii U though with a range of new and old games.
We doubted that it might even come, but Double Fine have managed to bring The Cave to the Australian eShop. It’s also quite good, we’ve been playing it all day. It actually came out last night, sorry about that. There’s also a demo if you’re not entirely sure about it. However it has Grog references, the world needs more Grog.
There’s also the 30c version of Balloon Fight (NES) to pick up, it’s the first in the Famicom’s 30th anniversary celebration sale. If you’ve got 30 cents left on your account, you might as well get it. Even if it is in 50hz.
So then, what are you picking up?
