Euro Nintendo eShop Update Gets Mario Kart And Sales

By   /   May 27, 2014

After a smaller week, the European Nintendo eShop is ready to drop the mother lode this time, with Mario Kart 8 as its main prize. Unlike other titles though, the highly anticipated racing sequel will be available for Wii U on Friday, instead of the usual digital update on Thursday.

Purchasing a copy of Mario Kart 8 will set you back €59.99 or €52, if you’ve previously downloaded Super Mario Kart on the Virtual Console. Some new game elements include anti-gravity, a defense against the dreaded Blue Shell and the possibility to upload videos to YouTube.

Additionally, Wii U owners can partake in one of Wales Interactive’s many games, Gravity Badgers. This 2D puzzle game with space-themed physics is available at €4.99.

On the Virtual Console, you can score The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap on Wii U for €6.99. It was previously also available as a 3DS title for the handheld’s Ambassador Program.

For once, the Nintendo 3DS will live in the shadow of its big brother, releasing only smaller titles. Me & My Furry Patients 3D lets you become a veterinarian for €29.99, while Coaster Creator 3D allows you to build rollercoasters for €7.25. It’s as simple as that.

In Castle Cloud 3D, you operate a highly illustrated Angry Birds mechanism in medieval style, trebuchet and all, for €4. On the Virtual Console, the 3DS receives the original Mario Golf for €4.99, as well as ninja adventure The Mysterious Murasame Castle for €4.99.

If you own a Wii U, also be sure to check this week’s deals on the Nintendo eShop. There are discounts for pretty much all Batman-related released.

Additionally, Capcom has a sale on both Wii U and 3DS for games like Resident Evil Revelations, Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara and Super Street Fighter IV 3D.
