The eShop this week is a little Odd. I don’t very often straight up make recommendations here for games that you should download, but this week I am. Check out Kuru Kuru Kururin. It’s a fun little puzzle game where you play as a duck in a constantly spinning spaceship. You have to navigate around different puzzles. It’s also the first time the game has been released in North America.
Outside of that we’ve got the release of Big Brain Academy on Wii U Virtual Console as well. Some games went on sale, like Citizens of Earth. Head past the break for all the details.
