It’s a busy week on the Nintendo eShop with a number of appealing games, old and new, coming to Wii U and 3DS.
If you were considering getting the new Bomberman for Nintendo Switch, you might want to think again. Bomberman ’94 comes to the Wii U Virtual Console this week and, for our money, it’s one of the best games in the series.
The game is joined by another Konami classic on Virtual Console, Gradius.
The big 3DS release of the week is Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World, a port of the 2015 platformer developed by Good Feel. We loved the Wii U original and based on the free demo the game plays just as well on Nintendo’s handheld. The 3DS edition features new content, but you might want to give the digital version a miss and go for the retail edition that comes bundled with an adorable Yarn Poochy Amiibo.
Also recommended this week is Punch Club, the knock-out boxing management sim from tinyBuild.
And finally, don’t forget that My Nintendo members can get 30% off every Zelda title on the eShop in the The Legend of Zelda Weeks Sale.
