Azure Striker Gunvolt 01

Okay. So it doesn’t quite have the same ring to it. In any case, Azure Striker Gunvolt, Inti Create’s spiritual sequel to the Mega Man Zero games, launches in the 3DS eShop tomorrow. Don’t forget, if you pick up the game before November 28, you’ll receive a free download for Mighty Gunvolt, the 8-bit crossover starring Gunvolt, Mighty No. 9‘s Beck and Gal☆Gun‘s Ekoro.

eShop Thursday: “Technically Free” Edition

August 21st, 2014 | Category: Uncategorized

Disney Infinity 00

Starting today, Disney Infinity is free to download in the Wii U eShop. Since the game requires a Disney Infinity base and figure to actually work, it’s more of a treat for people who picked up the game on the Wii and are looking to upgrade with the Wii U.

As for other releases this week, Capcom continues their month of Mega Man with Mega Man 6 on the Wii U Virtual Console, WayForward dusts off a GBC relic in Xtreme Sports and a bunch of eShop games get discounted.

Mega Man Battle Network

Mega Man Battle Network debuts on the Wii U Virtual Console today, but it’s only the tip of the Mega Man iceberg. Just like the Mega May promotion, Capcom will be releasing a new Mega Man game in the Wii U eShop each Thursday of this August. The games are:

  • Mega Man 5 (NES)
  • Mega Man 6 (NES)
  • Mega Man X3 (SNES)
  • Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge (GBA)

They won’t necessarily be released in this order, so it’ll be a little surprise each week.

Mr Driller 2 Wii U

It’s another uninteresting week in the eShop. Not terrible, but there isn’t really anything that will blow your mind.

Of note, is the GBA version of Mr. Driller 2, which digs its way onto the Wii U Virtual Console today.

Early next week, Nintendo is discounting a bunch of Atlus titles, including Shin Megami Tensei IV and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers.

eShop Thursday: “Not Quite ‘Get Back’ or ‘A Hard Day’s Night'” Edition

June 19th, 2014 | Category: Uncategorized

The NES version of Super Dodge Ball heads to the 3DS and Wii U Virtual Consoles today. It still holds up well, despite being surpassed in almost every aspect by the GBA release.

Sadly, it’s also a reminder that the WiiWare spiritual sequel Downtown Nekketsu Dodgeball never saw a release in the West.

There are plenty of other games also coming out this week. Pushmo World drops today, marking the series’ debut on the Wii U and the 20th Anniversary edition of Another World/Out of This World makes its way to the 3DS and Wii U’s respective eShops.
