Monster Hunter Generations, some SNES Mega Man classics and two Star Fox demos come to the Nintendo eShop this week.
The big game of the week is undoubtedly Capcom’s Monster Hunter Generations, perhaps the most approachable edition of the series yet. It’s joined on 3DS eShop by Disney Art Academy and two SNES classics in the shape of Mega Man 7 and Mega Man X. A couple of titles there that should help wash away the taste of Mighty No.9.
Over on Wii U there are two demos incoming, one for the much-maligned Star Fox Zero and one for the much better-received Star Fox Guard. It’s surely an attempt by Nintendo to drum-up sales lost by the confused and negative reception the first game received on release.
Also coming to Wii U is puzzle game Tumblestone, which its developer pitched as “the first original action-puzzle game of the past fifteen years”. That’s some claim you’re making there, Quantume Astrophysicists Guild.
There’s also a decent sale starting with games published by Curve Digital – including OlliOlli, The Swapper and Thomas Was Alone – available from €1.00/ £0.80.
Here’s the full release list.
