Nintendo eShop And Virtual Console Update: LEGO Ninjago Shadow Of Ronin, Namco Museum Headline This Week's Releases
On the off chance you've put in 48 hours of Bloodborne in the last 48 hours (and still have not actually beaten the game), you might be in need of a little break. Nintendo is here to cleanse your pallet. It's the weekly eShop and Virtual Console update!
The biggest title this week is LEGO Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin for the 3DS. The latest entry into the martial arts inspired franchise has our lovable band of heroes going up against Ronin, their greatest adversary to date, who is stealing the memories of his enemies via an ancient magical device. Complete with the particular brand of post-modern irony that made The LEGO Movie was one last year's biggest successes, and gamers both young and old are sure to find something to love in this title. The game serves as a primer for the upcoming season of the Ninjago TV show, as well. $39.99.
Dot Arcade (Wii U) transports you back to the classic light cabinet games of the 1980s. Featuring three games - Mr. Snake, Dodge Club and Rally Driver - it should prove a good bit of fun for nostalgia minded gamers. $4.99
But if actual nostalgia is your thing, then we highly suggest Namco Museum (Wii U), a five-game collection of some of the industry's most notable titles, and now you can adjust the difficulty, your number of lives and victory conditions. Features Ms. Pac Man, Galaxian, Galaga, Dig Dug and Pole Position. $6.99 on the Virtual Console.
Two new themes are available for 3DS owners: Pit from Kid Icarus and Samus Aran from Metroid.
Also out this week is...
LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham - DEMO version! Try it for free if you haven't already!
Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley DLC - some new decorations are available to farmers the world over.
And a game called Jet Dog which is essentially the CAT-apult flash game from a few years ago, only now with dogs. We're intrigued. $7.99 for the 3DS.
Tune in next week! See you then.
