It’s a good week for Nintendo downloads, as the company has updated their eShop this morning for both Wii U and the 3DS, with plenty to choose from.
On the Wii U front, the company has kicked off its Virtual Console program, offering the NES classic Balloon Fight for a reasonably cheap $.30. Though the graphics haven’t updated much, the customizable controls are rather cool. And, hey, it’s Balloon Fight.
Also, Sega’s The Cave has released for the eShop, available for $14.99. The game features excellent character switching mechanics and plenty of puzzles to solve.
And if you’re into retail games, you can get the strategy game Funky Barn as well. A price wasn’t disclosed, but we’re guessing you can get it for $29.99.
Meanwhile, over on the 3DS, Ubisoft has released Tony Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars 3D ($29.99) as a full retail download, so you can check out the critically acclaimed strategy game for yourself. A new game, Cocoto Alien Brick Breaker ($4.99) is also available, with a set-up similar to the classic Breakout games – but with a twist, of course.
Other noteworthy additions include a free downloadable demo for the forthcoming Brain Age: Concentration Training, which lets you try out a few mind-bending exercises to see how you fare. And if you’re a classic NES gamer, you’ll definitely want to pick up Super C ($4.99), Konami’s entertaining run-and-gun sequel. (But where’s the original Contra?!)
Check out these games now on the eShop service.
