eShop Shipment 9/19: Sailing Back to our Hearts
Oooh, this is a pretty sexy week for Nintendoâ€™s eShop.Â The Wii U gets some beautiful discounts and the return of 2 classics, while the 3DS gets a few board gamesâ€¦and Pinball! Star Wars Pinball. Thatâ€™s cool, right?
On the Wii U end, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, the acclaimed hunt and gather Action-RPG, gets 50% sliced off of its price. Thatâ€™s $29.99, down from its original $59.99. If youâ€™re a new Wii U owner and havenâ€™t gotten to get into the game, itâ€™s an awesome deal, but it only lasts ’til the 22nd.
Chasing Aurora, an early eShop title, gets a price drop to $4.99. Itâ€™s a 5 player race-and-chase title thatâ€™s nicely priced at 5 dollars.
Super Mario Bros. comes to Virtual Console for $4.99, or just $1.00 if you own the Wii version. Itâ€™s the same classic game as it ever was, now playable on the Wii U gamepad.
Tonight, at midnight, the gorgeous Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD hit the eShop, 2 weeks ahead of its retail release. The digital version of the fan favorite is priced at $49.99, a fair price for one of the largest Zeldaâ€™s ever, plus improved mechanics and rebalanced quests (those triumph forks.) To go with it, the Wii U WWHD bundle hits tomorrow, which includes a download code for the game along with some other extras and a lovely Zelda adorned gamepad. The Bundle retails for $299.99. Check back for a review before its October 4th retail release.
The 3DS notable releases include Star Wars Pinball and Solomonâ€™s Key, from the NES.
Next Tuesday, Scribblenauts Unmasked, a DC Comics themed version of the creative series hits both Wii U and 3DS, allowing you to summon the dark knight with the pen instead of a spotlight. FIFA14 hits the 3DS the same day.
