Star Fox 64 barrel rolls onto the Nintendo eShop.
There’s a remarkably solid line-up coming to the Nintendo eShop this week, even if it’s one that trades heavily on nostalgia.
The big headline is the arrival of Nintendo 64 classic, Star Fox 64 – once known as Lylat Wars on UK shores. It’s discounted in the run up to the release of the new Wii U title, Star Fox Zero but if money is not a problem we’d probably recommend picking up the 3DS remake, which is available from Amazon for about £15.
The Nintendo 3DS sees some more SNES classics arrive in the shape of two Donkey Kong Country titles, plus there’s the long-awaited port of the Wii U Zelda spin-off, Hyrule Warriors: Legends.
Here’s the full eShop line-up for this week.
