Not a lot of offerings this week from Nintendo on the eShop Kirby, Scram Kitty and Mr Driller are the main titles with Conception II and Fit Music being the others. That’s it, I’ll just leave the usual table of info here then.

Wii U gaming news
Stealth Inc has been quite a hit on the PC (as Stealth Bastard) and PlayStation Network, but the sequel is coming exclusively to the Wii U. No, really. Curve Digital have scheduled its release for Q4 2014 on the Wii U.
Nintendo are busy this week with a lot of releases, some special offers and a permanent price drop. The big releases are Child of Light, Mario Golf World Tour, Hometown Story and indie hit, Cave Story.
NES Remix 2 for the Wii U hits the Nintendo eShop this week, along with Sayonara UmiharaKawase on the 3DS. The special offers are all titles from Joindots and that’s about it. Not much of an offering, but maybe there’s something just around the corner.
Nintendo Pocket Football Club is available to buy on the eShop this week and there’s a free demo of Mario Golf: World Tour. NPFC will only cost £10.79 until May 1st when it will go up to full price of £13.49, you save £2.70 buying it early.
You may have already seen it, it’s technically not an unboxing in the strictest sense, it’s more of a what-to-expect-in-the-Vigilante-Edition video. If Ubisoft would be so kind as to send me an actual Watch_Dogs VE (on PS3 please), I’ll do a proper unboxing vid!
The main focus this week on the Nintendo eShop are that Game Boy Advance games are arriving on the Wii U via Virtual Console. They’re not just any games though, one of them was a very popular launch title, but that doesn’t excuse the price Nintendo are asking.
This week will see the launch of Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney on the eShop for 3DS, but only Virtual Console offerings for the Wii U. There’s also some kind of Mario Kart deal which includes buying the VC Wii U version to save money.
Pure Chess seems to be the highlight this week on the Nintendo eShop. The other two offerings are just Virtual Console releases, one for the Wii U and one for the 3DS, so maybe one of the special offers will be of interest to you.
Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition has been announced for next-gen consoles and is one of the first indie titles to launch through Microsoft’s [email protected] program. That’s for Xbox One, but it’s also coming to the PlayStation 4 and Wii U.
