Nintendo eShop’s New April 20, 2017 Releases

Speaking as a Nintendo fan, we’ve certainly had some important news lately. Moreover, today’s Thursday! Thus, the eShop has new games for the Switch, Wii U and Nintendo 3DS family.


Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap resurrects the beloved side-scroller for a new generation! With an orchestrated soundtrack and redrawn graphics to render the beautifully animated adventure, Wonder Boy has never been so wonderful.

URBAN TRIAL FREESTYLE 2, launching for the 3DS, expands upon the trick style bike riding fans love. Furthermore, not only does this sequel contain twice as many levels as the original, it also has a track editor. Naturally, you can share your inventions with your friends. And a free demo is available, too.

Rayman 3, the Game Boy Advance version, has joined the Wii U Virtual Console catalog. A 2D counterpart to the popular platformer, I hear this is a solid romp.

Rayman Advance is also up to download on the Wii U. As a rebalanced version of the first Rayman, Advance is a more well-rounded experience. However, I hear a few other comprises had to be made.
