Nintendo eShop’s New October 27, 2016 Releases

Just Dance 2017 demo

Just Dance 2017 demo (Ubisoft)

Are you excited for January’s Nintendo Switch presentation? I know I am, but we should head over to the Nintendo eShop if you want something to entertain yourself with until then.

Just Dance 2017, for the Wii U, is Ubisoft’s annual addition to its Just Dance series. Use your Wii Remotes or the Just Dance Controller App on your smartphone to copy the funky moves of your on-screen avatar. A free demo is available, too.

Lost in Shadow is a puzzle-platformer by the late Hudosn Soft. You play as a boy’s shadow and, along with your sylph, you’ll explore abandoned ruins from another dimension. Your shadow is immune to the adverse effects of gravity and, when you’re not fighting off enemies, you’ll need to influence light in order to solve the Tower’s brainteasers.

Corpse Party, for the Nintendo 3DS, sounds like an appropriate title to get you in the Halloween spirit. An improved version of the first Corpse Party, this update contains four additional chapters and improved visuals and music. Will you survive your school’s horrors? The retail-exclusive Back to School Edition costs more, but it comes with a couple of figures and a CD. Curious if the indie classic holds up? Check out my review.
