Anyway, here’s the games you can get hold of this week on the eShop.

With all manner of angling to enjoy, from freshwater fly-fishing to deep-sea trolling to collecting a variety of insects and plant life, you’ll have hours of fun in this role-playing adventure.
  • Virtual Console on Wii U
    • Wild Guns – Blast your way through villainous outlaws, diabolical robots and towering, screen-filling bosses either by yourself or with a friend at your side in the Super NES classic, Wild Guns. You’ll need a sharp eye and quick-on-the-draw reflexes, but fortunately, you’ve got plenty of moves to help you survive the hail of bullets heading your way. You can dive-roll, jump, double jump, rope enemies with a lasso and clear the screen with explosive special attacks. Blast apart just about everything in the environment to find guns, bombs and other hidden power-ups. It’s up to you to bring justice back to town – or whatever’s left of it when the smoke clears.

30 thoughts on “Here’s This Week’s Nintendo Downloads For The US”

        1. I’ve played it on a friend’s PS4, and I thought it was pretty good. It’s a pretty short game (compared to others), but it has some post-game content to make up for that as well as raids.

  1. The fact that we will need more than one demo to play locally means that single card local multiplayer play in the full fame is ruled out right?

      1. Yeah me too. I have two brothers, and I dont want to buy three copies of the game. They should at least give us the somewhat limited option mario kart gave us, or mario party gave us.

        One can hope.

  2. Along with the Smash 4 demo, I’m also excited that Castlevania Dracula X has finally been re-released for the first time!

  3. Is anyone else bothered by the fast Nintendo has the worse sale prices? I know Nintendo makes some damn good games, but can they at least put a few of their games at a sale price where people won’t hesitate to buy them right away? I won’t even feel bad at all getting the games at full price if the sale prices are so close to the regular prices.

      1. First off, I’m not complaining about virtual console games at all so I don’t know how you assume I could be talking about those. I’m talking about games like Fire Emblem Awakening which are more than a year old that won’t get a price drop less than $10 USD for a sale. Even Capcom did a great job with it’s recent eshop sale where games like Phoenix Wright and Monster Hunter were at prices you would want to take advantage of right away.

        Secondly, I’m don’t live in the USA where everything is damn cheap or given to you like candy. You really think I’ll be complaining if I had to pay $40 or less for every game I buy for the rest of my life? Try having to pay $80-$200 for ONE new game and $700-$1700 for a game console/portable.

  4. Well, I played the shit out of the last Final Fantasy Rhythm game. I kinda wish this was DLC instead of a new game so the playlist is expanded instead of having two games… Oh well. Not sure if I can get that involved again in a Final Fantasy Rhythm game.

    omg, can’t wait for Hyrule Warriors, then shortly after, Smash Releases on my Birthday! ;D

  5. (Random thought:) Does anybody else think that Nintendo should make a new Rhythm Heaven for the 3DS/Wii U? I actually think that a translated version of the first Rhythm Heaven would be awesome as well…

  6. This week of the Super Smash Bros Sale SUCK ASS. I mean, not a reall Pokemon game on sale and only Metroid, not Super or Fusion?

  7. So excited for the SSB demo tomorrow!
    I think it’s funny that the new SSB games don’t have a tag in their name, like Brawl or Melee. I was really looking forward to Super Smash Brothers: Skirmish. Heheh.
