Nintendo Download Update (29/5) – Gaining Traction

by Troy WassenaarMay 29, 2014

So it’s a pretty quiet this week in the eShop thi- what’s that? Tons of sales on Wii U and 3DS? Minish Cap on Virtual Console? Mario Golf on the 3DS Virtual Console as well? Well maybe this week isn’t so bad after all.

I’ll stop being coy, and just get this out there: MARIO KART 8! Hold your horses, it comes out Friday night, but hey, you’re probably shaking already in excitement. Don’t forget, you also get a free game to choose from, as long as you buy before 31/7. And if you bought Super Mario Kart on Virtual Console a while back, you get $10.40 AUD off the eShop price of Mario Kart 8.While your brain is processing all of that, go read our review! And you’ve probably already heard of Pullblox World for the Wii U being announced, and now you can grab the previous two titles on the 3DS for $6.50 each! Yup, go do that.

Still breathing? Alright, so it looks like we’re also getting all our eShop Batman games 75% off to celebrate 75 years of Batman. That’s your Arkhams, your LEGO Batman, all of it. On top of that, CAPCOM are putting a bunch of their games on sale as well, with Resident Evil and Super Street Fighter for some pretty gnarly prices.

This is a pretty great update this week, with Mario Kart 8 only being the cherry on top. And the whipped cream. But underneath all that is still a pretty awesome sundae, so dig in! Let us know what you’re grabbing in the comments below!

    MK8’s a no brainer. My jaw hit the floor seeing Batman:Arkham Origins Blackgate for $12.48. Bought.

    Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is VERY tempting at that price and I’m not even a Batman fan.

    I’ll download The Mysterious Murasame Castle when they release it on Wii U.

    3DS Resident Evil on sale on the eshop ….

    Mmmm

    I have seen RE Revelations New for $19 at EB this week.

    Previously RE Mercenaries was available for $4 preowned – but even then some were new in the box. Apparently out of stock now.

    While you are at EB check out Crush3D, Rythym Thief, Starfox 64 and Castlevania MoF for value.

    Nothing about Mysterious Castle?
    That’s the game Takamaru’s Ninja Castle in Nintendo Land is based on!
