Here’s your weekly round-up of Nintendo eShop releases.
Or should that be release?
We were so happy last week. After four years of waiting F-Zero X finally game to the Wii U’s Virtual Console. Hardly the biggest news, admittedly, but still much better than this week’s eShop line-up.
I don’t want to say that this week’s solitary game release is bad – we haven’t played Shoot the Ball – but the game’s official description kind of says it all.
“Use the touch screen to “shoot” the ball into the open space scoring a point. Each shape is randomly given a speed and colour to increase the difficulty.”
Well, it’s not Dishonored 2 is it?
Although the Wii U is now on its last legs it would be shame if the eShop closed up early. With precious few retail games available until the release of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild it would be nice if Nintendo dug deep and gave us a few more SNES, GBA and N64 classics to fill the void, assuming that we’ll be able to carry them over to the Nintendo Switch, of course.
Anyway, moan over, here’s this week’s Nintendo eShop ‘line-up’:
Nintendo eShop releases for 10 November, 2016
- Shoot the Ball – €1.49 / £1.39 / CHF 2.10
