Here’s your round-up of the week’s Nintendo eShop releases. Or rather, here comes Pokemon Sun and Moon.
The biggest Nintendo game of the fall – and a contender for biggest game of the year, with 10 million copies printed – arrives this week with the long-awaited release of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. It’s pleasing to see almost universal praise for the latest game in the long-running franchise, particularly as this year’s edition brings a host of changes to the standard Pokémon formula.
There’s also a retail release for the updated Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Included on the game cart is the recent Welcome Amiibo update which introduces new mini-games, amiibo support and a number of other tweaks and improvements. It’s well worth another stay.
And if you enjoyed the recent Rhythm Heaven: Mega Mix on 3DS you might be interested in checking out its Wii predecessor, Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise. It’s not as good but remains a hugely imaginative and entertaining experience.
Here’s the rest of this week’s Nintendo eShop line-up:
