Nintendo eShop And Virtual Console Update, May 21: 'Puzzle & Dragons Z + Super Mario Edition', 'Swords & Soliders 2'
Another week, another Nintendo eShop and Virtual Console update. Nintendo is bringing a selection of new games to its digital stores on both Wii U and 3DS today--let's see what they have on tap.
The big release for 3DS this week is Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition, which will launch on May 22. The newest game of the two-for-one package is Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition, which resembles a classic Super Mario Bros. game with a puzzling twist. Players drag and match colored orbs to chain combos and battle opponents, level up and clear stages all themed to the Mushroom Kingdom.
The second title of the bundle is Puzzles & Dragons Z, a big hit in Japan that sold more than 1.5 million units in just the six months after launch. It features the same drag-and-match puzzle gameplay with its own (entirely Super Mario free) story. Instead, players collect and battle more than 250 monsters, which you can hatch from eggs earned from enemies.
The next game releasing is Swords & Soldiers II , a sequel to the 2D side-scroller from 2009. Ronimo Games is bringing its Viking action to Wii U along with some new factions, a grand campaign, and local multiplayer. Wii U's Virtual Console is getting Mega Man Zero 2 and SUPER E.D.F. Earth Defense Forcethis week.
