This week’s Nintendo eShop release line-up is, erm, short.
We guess some weeks there just aren’t any games to release. And this looks like being one of those weeks.
A paltry two releases are coming to the Nintendo eShop this week – both on 3DS – in the shape of Alien on the Run and Stickman Super Athletics. Alien on the Run also gets a free demo so you can at least try before you buy.
If you want something new to play on Wii U, well, you are out of luck.
Elsewhere, there are a few discounts to be found, the best being a 50% reduction across the entire range of Zen Pinball games and DLC packs.
Here’s the full release list.
Nintendo eShop releases for 4th August 2016
- Alien on the run – €4.99/ £4.19 / CHF 5.39
- Stickman Super Athletics – €2.49/ £2.25 / CHF 2.75 until 22/08/2016
