The Nintendo eShop had a solid October full of new releases and the trend continues in the first week of November. Both the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS have several new releases, with the biggest being Level-5’s Yo-Kai Watch. The handheld JRPG has been a hit in Japan, and has been compared heavily to Nintendo’s own Pokemon series.
If you’re curious about what might be the next potential video game craze among children, you’ll be glad to know that Yo-Kai Watch has a demo that is also available for download. If you like what you played, the full version is available for $39.99.
The Nintendo 3DS isn’t the only system with an exciting new release, though. Nintendo Wii U owners will be glad to hear that Electronic Super Joy has made its way to the system. In a strange twist fate, the difficult platformer makes it way onto Wii U after its sequel, Electronic Super Joy: Groove City, released earlier this year on Nintendo’s home console. Gamers can pick it up for $7.99.
Also releasing on Wii U is the holiday-centric Christmas Adventure of Rocket Penguin. The title, which is priced at $1.99, comes from developer Petite Games. Despite releasing their first game just last year, Petite Games has quickly made a name for themselves on the eShop as one of the best budget developers.
The Nintendo 3DS eShop will also offer up something old, and something new. The Virtual Console sees some much needed love in the form of the NES title Stinger. Stinger is a 2D shoot ’em up from Konami, and was originally released in 1987 as a sequel to Twinbee. Another old game receiving a re-release is Toki Tori 3D, a remake of the Game Boy Color title. It’s appropriately priced at $1.99.
Finally, there are some solid sales hitting the eShop, as Nano Assault Neo has received a temporary 25% price cut. The Shin’en developed shooter can now be purchased on Wii U for $7.49. Two noteworthy 3DS titles are also on sale, with Siesta Fiesta and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker getting discounts of 75% and 25%, respectively. That makes Siesta Fiesta only $1.49, while the Atlus developed RPG will be $29.99 starting on November 9th.
