This week’s Nintendo eShop update has a lot of interesting items popping up in the store on both console and handheld. Most of the content will arrive on the usual Thursday, but some may be a day sooner or later.
For instance, Ubisoft’s colorful Child of Light platform and roleplaying game (RPG) hybrid arrives on the eShop on April 30, 2014 for a price of €14.99. This anticipated release will try to charm Wii U users with its wavy animations and extensive upgrading mechanisms.
Furthermore, the Wii U also received indie game Stick it to the Man for €7.99, which is cheaper than its Steam release counterpart. Adventure fans that got a kick out of titles like Psychonauts or The Neverhood may find some resemblance here.
On 3DS, Nintendo drops a ton of content, with Mario Golf: World Tour as its spotlight feature. It comes to the eShop on May 2, 2014 for €39.99. North America gets this game for $29.99, which is a mind-boggling price difference.
Previously announced downloadable content (DLC) for Mario Golf will arrive that day as well, with the Mushroom pack as the first of three batches.
More importantly, Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl lands in Europe, after a delay compared to other regions. You can snag the RPG for €39.99.
Speaking of delays, Hometown Story arrives this week as well, for a price of €29.99. From publisher Rising Star Games, the title continues the Harvest Moon vibe in something a little different.
For a taste of something new, the eShop also puts out 3DS demos for The Denpa Men 3: The Rise of Digitoll and Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars. While the latter already released in other regions, Denpa Men hasn’t, so make sure to grab it and test it out. They’re weird Pokémon-like titles.
There are various other releases as well, so take a look on your eShop this Thursday.
