It's been a busy few days for the House That Mario Built. There's been Super Smash Bros related updates coming in daily, three new 3DS XL systems and some Hyrule Warriors exclusives. They're not done yet, either. Let's check out what's new on the Nintendo eShop this week!

Super Smash Bros Pic Of The Day: Olimar!

First up, for the Wii U is new classic Teslagrad. Named for the legendary mad scientist, the 2D puzzle game puts your logic to the test as you manipulate electricity and magnetism to navigate through over one hundred hand drawn levels. The game coined the term 'Teslamancer', which is a thing that should have existed since the day Nikola Tesla decided to build a death ray. Watch the trailer below.

Up next for the 3DS eShop is The Keep, a dungeon crawling adventure molded along classical RPG lines. Enter The Keep as an unsung hero on your quest to destroy the evil Wizard. Engage in Real Time combat, master a unique magic system by way of your runes and do all the things dungeons were clearly made for: explore, fight and get treasure. Check out the trailer here.

The Wii U Controller Is Fully Realized In Fatal Frame V

Coming to the Wii U Virtual Console this week is Adventure Island, which is the 1986 NES adaptation of Wonder Boy, with powers comparable to Wonder Boy! Travel to an island and rescue the princess, because obviously that's what you do. Not a classic like other NES titles, but one that is certainly worth the $4.99.

The Nintendo Super Smashing Sale, giving a 33% discount on all Super Smash Bros related titles in honor of the upcoming release of the latest version of everyone's favorite fighter continues. This week will see discounts on Zelda titles, Fire Emblem, Kid Icarus and more. The offer ends next Thursday, when new challengers will approach!

Unepic - GameNGuide's pick of the week! A charming retro-platformer that puts you in the role of a D&D noob who finds himself teleported to a medieval castle and, thinking he's tripping out, decides to up and run his own adventure. Featuring over 200 rooms and filled with a pop-culture heavy script. The game is discounted 20% from $9.99 to $7.99.

Bit Boy!! Arcade - is now on sale for $4.99 for the 3DS. It's Bit Boy!! now is the perfect time to grab it!
