Mighty Bomb Jack and Life Force highlight the downloads this week.
Another week has come and gone and like every week before it, the Nintendo eShop has updated its game selection. This week might be just what the doctor ordered for the Big N, seeing as though there’s no Football this weekend and the NHL has the Devils and Rangers playing outdoors, which as a Devils fan, I will be glued to. Non-sports fans should take a look at the eShop this week.
Mighty Bomb Jack hits the Wii U Virtual Console this week. The classic game has you assuming the role of “Jack” as you try and rescue the royal Pamera family from the clutches of the demon, Belzebut. Old-school plat forming meets item collecting but not too much collecting because the torture room awaits those who collect too many things.
Also available this week is Life Force for the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console. The game switches between vertical and horizontal side scrolling while you try and prevent your galaxy from being the blue plate special. You’ll be able to upgrade your ship with power-ups you grab along the way and if going it alone is too tough, you can invite a friend to help out. You’re the galaxy’s only hope against Zelos! Will you step up to the plate?
Next up is eShop discounts and promotions available. The trial version of Wii Fit U is only free for one more week so everyone who wants to work on their New Year’s resolutions should act fast. To make the trial version the full version, all you need to do is sync a Fit Meter to the trial version and then you can keep it forever. Also available at a discount it Shin Megami Tensei IV from Jan. 27th to February 3rd for 29 dollars and Fractured Soul is available now through February 6th for 6 bucks. Enjoy the games everyone!
