Dragon Quest VII is the big hitter in the eShop this week. If you’re in the mood for catching adorable, mischevious demons then maybe the demo for Yokai Watch 2 is more your kind of thing. Even the Virtual Console gets a good release in Wario Ware: Smooth Moves for the Wii. There’s some good stuff coming to the eShop today. Head past the break for the full list.

Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service that features a wide variety of content, including new and classic games, applications and demos. Users can add money to their account balances by using a credit card or purchasing a Nintendo eShop Card at a retail store and entering the code from the card. All funds from one card must be loaded in Nintendo eShop on either Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can be used in either Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single Nintendo Network account.
