Nintendo eShop Shipment: 11/21


Not to be outdone by two big launches in one week, Nintendo’s dripping some of the hype juice to Wii U and 3DS eShop users this week.

I will be sipping 2 very big drops.

On Wii U:

We’ve got Coaster Crazy Deluxe for $9.99, Mysterious Cities of Gold for $14.99, Brawl Brothers for $7.99, and EDGE, a puzzle game from the talented team at Two Tribes, who developed sleepers like Toki Tori 2, for $1.99.

Those choices are the openers for the midnight release of Super Mario 3D World. Looking so far to be one of the best Mario games in a very long time, the title brings 4 player 3-D platforming, colorful visuals, and a ton of new power-ups and ideas. The game can be had for $59.99; look for our review in the near future.

On the 3DS side of things:

Ohno Odyssey comes for $5.99, along with Jewel Match 3 for $6.99, Christmas Wonderland 3(?) for $7.99, City Connection for $4.99, and DLC for Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies for $5.99.

The big hitters on the handheld include Mario Party: Island Tour for $39.99…

and the sequel to one of the best 2-D adventures ever, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. The game repurposes the setting of A Link to the Past and adds a new item rental system, height puzzles, and a new 2D Link mechanic. We’ll have our final opinion of the game in the coming weeks.

There’s also a sale on Mega Man games, with games 1-4 at 30% off.

Seriously, though. Main series Mario and Zelda on the same day. 2 new consoles in a week of each other. It’s definitely November. And I’m running out of money.
