Xenoblade Chronicles X leads the best Nintendo eShop line-up in quite some time.
When a Fireman Sam game is the highlight of your week, you know things are bad. However, the Nintendo eShop hosts a much better roster of games this week, with two big titles arriving on Wii U and 3DS.
On Wii U comes the expansive and beautiful Xenoblade Chronicles X. A game so big that Nintendo are also offering a series of downloadable ‘High-Speed Data Loading Packs’ for disc owners of the game. It seems like a faff, so let’s hope the end result is worth it.
Over on 3DS the latest Mario RPG arrives in the shape of Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Bros. This series has an excellent pedigree and made a good impression on us at E3, so hopes are high.
And then, here’s something unexpected: Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure comes to Wii U. Our recommendation: get it. A bonafide Wii classic that was criminally overlooked.
Another release that is also worthy of some attention is Human Resource Machine, the latest game from the the creators of World of Goo and Little Inferno.
