This week is slow when it comes to new releases for Nintendo's virtual eShop service, but there are still a few significant ones to keep you busy.

First up, the latest Virtual Console title has arrived for Wii U, and it's none other than Kid Icarus. This 1986 platformer is considered one of the most challenging from the NES era, but fans simply can't get enough of it. You can download it now for $4.99.

On the Nintendo 3DS, shooter fans can indulge in Chain Blaster, a new fast-paced shmup that will keep you on your toes. This one goes for $6.99.

Other releases for the 3DS include the addictive puzzle game Picross E2, which sells for $5.99; the overly adorable action/arcade game Cute Witch! Runner, available for a yet undisclosed price; and the fishing game Angler's Club: Ultimate Bass Fishing 3D, which can be yours for $29.99.

Happy shopping.
