It’s a day late, but still we’ll get you all the news about Nintendo Downloads we can. Another week with no high profile game releases on Nintendo platforms. Blaster Master hits the Virtual Console on Wii U. Ubisoft drops the price of games like Rayman Origins by 75%. I highly recommend checking out Child of Light. Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold gets a demo this week. If you’re interested in first person dungeon crawling give that a look.
Splatoon Splatfest happens this week. Starting today and running through tomorrow evening. Pick a team and battle it out in a turf war for the ages.
Head past the break for all the details on what you can pick up this week in the eShop on Wii U and 3DS.
