As the weather has warmed up, Nintendo is taking us into the wilderness for this eShop update. The Nintendo Switch and Wii U both get a hot title each.
NINTENDO ESHOP RELEASES – MARCH 30, 2017
Snake Pass is a throwback to the “collectathons” of years past. Noodle the Snake rises to save his home from a mysterious invader, and retrieving the ancient Keystones will grant him the power to do so. Noodle’s body-type will allow him to interact with the world as only a snake can. Snake Pass was developed by Sumo Digital, the studio behind the first-rate SEGA All-Star series. Furthermore, it was scored by David Wise, who’s best known for his work on the Donkey Kong Country series.
Pikmin 2 was the second entry in the under-appreciated series, and its Wii Remote-controlled re-release has graced the Wii U. Pikmin and Pikmin 3 require you to familiarize yourself with their maps while carefully budgeting your resources – time being the most important – but Pikmin 2 lacks that incentive. Instead, you’re challenged through other means, specifically by scouring dungeons with your Pikmin army. However, Pikmin 2 is still great, and you should try it.
