Pokémon Sun and Moon Ash-Greninja

This is an important day because Nintendo’s next system, which was heretofore only known by its codename, was formally unveiled. Tell me, are you excited for the Nintendo Switch? However, Nintendo’s Wii U and Nintendo 3DS systems are still enjoying new games, so let’s check out this week’s eShop update.

Pirate Pop Plus has boarded the Wii U and New Nintendo 3DS! The Bubble Pirate has plundered the local villagers, and Pete Jr. is the only one who can save them. If you buy Pirate Pop Plus on your Wii U, you’ll receive a free digital copy of the game on your New Nintendo 3DS. The opposite is true, too.

SteamWorld Heist is the successor to SteamWorld Dig, and it has finally arrived on the Wii U. You’ll receive a ten percent discount on the Wii U version of Heist if you own its Nintendo 3DS version or either version of SteamWorld Dig. Additionally, the Wii U version of Heist is currently enjoying a launch discount.

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks was the Zelda game that featured trains. Set a generation after the events of Wind Waker and Phantom Hourglass, a new Link must overcome a new evil! A new, more proactive Zelda is there to aid you, and her possession abilities should prove useful.

Breath of Fire, originally for the Super Nintendo, has been re-released for the New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console. Ryu is the lead in this RPG. Does he have what it takes to save his innocent sister from the Dark Dragons?

Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon Special Demo Version was released this past Tuesday, and it is the only way to obtain an AshGreninja. Furthermore, if you own an installment of the current Pokémon generation, you can receive a free Keldeo and Volcanion. Serebii’s event page has the details on your two new partners.
