Aussie Nintendo Download Updates (25/12 – 31/12) – All wrapped up

by Troy WassenaarDecember 26, 2017

Christmas is over, Boxing Day is mostly over, and now we’re in that weird spot between all that and the new year… well, at least we have the eShop to keep us busy!

A solid week, but still modest compared to the last few weeks of 20+ releases, we have SteamWorld Heist and plenty more trickling out through the week.

We also have a list of all the sales ending on the 28th this week, so be sure to grab what you want before then! And as usual, we’ll try to keep you updated with any last minute releases and sales that get added (we’ve had some stuff fall through the cracks, with the new format and a huge few weeks on eShop, so bear with us while we work out the kinks!)

    Here we are at the end of the year and we still haven’t seen Never Stop Sneaking’. Anybody know what happened to that one? It seems that it has been released in other territories, just not OZ.

    • December 27, 2017 at 6:08 am

      It’s been released in the US but there have been no announcements for it releasing in other regions. I’m sure it’ll come eventually, but for the moment we just have to wait and see.
