New Club Nintendo Rewards Include a 3DS Original

Up until this point the digital Club Nintendo rewards have consisted mainly of old Virtual Console games and DSiWare games from a few years ago.  This month marks the first time that an original, exclusive 3DS title is a part of the digital rewards you can earn through the loyalty program.  For 200 coins you can pick up a copy of the tower defense style … Continue reading New Club Nintendo Rewards Include a 3DS Original

La-Mulana Finally Coming to WiiWare

The story of La-Mulana has definitely been one of ups and downs.  The game was announced a couple of years ago and the development ended up talking way longer than expected.  Back in March it was announced that the game would not see a release in North America for a number of reasons, one being that it was going to be hard to get the Japanese DLC over here.  Well, the game has been picked up by another publisher and it will be seeing a North American release after all.

EnjoyUp Games has picked up the title and will be releasing it to WiiWare on September 20th.  Here are some questions you need to ask yourself if you’re not sure about trying this game.  Do you like Indiana Jones?  Do you like caves?  Did you enjoy playing Cave Story?  Do you like giant, screen-filling lizard bosses?  If you answered yes to any of those questions, then you might be interested in this game.  It will cost you 1000 Wii Points to download.  Press release and screens after the jump.   Continue reading “La-Mulana Finally Coming to WiiWare”

Fluidity Is The Newest Club Nintendo Reward

This week’s Club Nintendo reward is Fluidity, which if I remember correctly has been offered through Club Nintendo once already. You have until August 19th to download the WiiWare title for 150 Coins. I downloaded this game the first time it was available, but I’ve only actually played a couple of levels so far. That’s a great use of Club Nintendo coins isn’t it? Almost as … Continue reading Fluidity Is The Newest Club Nintendo Reward

Just A Little Off the Top

Could the eShop be Wii U’s secret weapon?

Notes from the Mushroom Kingdom

Today’s 3DS update brought with it not only the usual promise of security and firmware improvements, but a new folder system that allows for a much cleaner, and more logical, ordering of games and applications on the 3DS home screen. There was however another update installed today that went largely unnoticed by both gamers and Nintendo’s advertising campaign alike. Today’s update installed a simple, yet incredibly effective update to the eShop, taking what was becoming a cumbersome interface and streamlining into a far more user-friendly system.

The interface update allows for a far easier sorting of the now numerous collection of games and applications that fill the eShop, showing a clear intent from Nintendo that the eShop isn’t just another Wii Shop Channel – it is Nintendo staying with the ever-evolving downloadable market and making sure that the games you want are always accessible. The update is a strong signal of intent from Nintendo that the eShop is a big factor in the life of the 3DS, but what about the Wii U? Could the eShop be one of the Wii U’s secret weapons?
