It’s Easter this weekend and there will be absolutely no shortage of things to play on your 3DS or Wii U this long weekend. There’s a ton of new retail games, some eShop titles, some back catalogue titles and even some Virtual Console.
Oh and some Fire Emblem. Get excited.
The big titles this week are obviously the retail games. There’s Lego City Undercover on the Wii U and on the 3DS you’ve got Luigi’s Mansion 2 and Code of Princess. If you’re stuck away on holiday with the family and can’t make it to a store, then there’s always the eShop option for those three.
On the original eShop side of things you’ve got Game Freak’s Harmoknight. Yes, a new original game from the creators of Pokemon. It’s a musical rhythm platformer and if you missed the demo last week then you can check it out before dumping the big bucks. It’s not cheap.
What is cheap is escapeVektor, this one is down from $13 to $6.50. If you haven’t picked this up for your 3DS yet, then you’re missing out.
But wait there’s even more on the 3DS eShop with the Fire Emblem Awakening demo finally hitting our shores. The game is still a little under a month away so hopefully the demo will tide you over. If you don’t download this, you need a smack over the head.
The Save Data Transfer Tool will finally make an appearance on the eShop too. This will allow you to transfer save files from a game card to a downloaded version. Handy if you’re moving to a digital future.
The 3DS fun doesn’t stop there with Resident Evil: Revelations, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell 3D and Heroes of Ruin making their way to the eShop to buy.
One left, the Gameboy Color version of Harvest Moon is making its way to the Virtual Console this week and setting up shop.
Well that’s the second big week in a row, what are you buying?
