We certainly have had a significant week thus far. I’m not sure what awaits us in the next four years, but in the meantime, we can distract ourselves with the weekly Nintendo eShop update. The Wii U and Nintendo 3DS family both received some nice games.
Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles is a rail shooter originally released for the Wii. Umbrella Chronicles not only retells key events from Resident Evil, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis and Zero, it also divulges a new scenario pertaining to the ill-intentioned corporation. Now, you can relive Capcom’s light gun action on your Wii U.
Rhythm Heaven Fever has also arrived on the Wii U! Perform actions according to the beat on over 50 minigames, and then challenge yourself to earn a “Perfect!” rating on all of them. Bonus games and toys are won by performing well, too. Woah! You go, big guy!
Harvest Moon: Skytree Village, for the 3DS family, is the latest in a venerable series. You know the drill: farm, make friends, get married.
Mega Man X3, re-released for the New Nintendo 3DS, brings back the titular Maverick Hunter and his partner for their third adventure. Serene Reploids have reverted into Mavericks, and X and Zero are tasked with keeping them at bay.
Finally, while it won’t be released through the eShop, the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition will launch tomorrow for $59.99. What’s your favorite NES game?
Furthermore, Nintendo is hosting an anniversary sale for its popular Nintendo Badge Arcade app, and a surprise batch of Metroid-themed rewards were added to My Nintendo. You can check them out over yonder.
By the way, are you a Pokémon Trainer? Genesect is November’s free Mythical Pokémon, so head out to a GameStop to catch one. The Bug/Steel type will be redeemable in Pokémon X, Y, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Serebii’s 2016 event page details your new partner’s movepool.
