It’s slim pickings from Nintendo this week, unless you like collecting themes.
Whilst the Xbox and PlayStation stores are offering up some compelling sales for the summer, it’s looking a little fallow over at the Nintendo ranch.
This week’s eShop roster is pretty slim all round. Yes, it does include the simply wonderful Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, which arrives on the Wii U Virtual Console, but let’s be honest, the 3DS remaster really is the way to go if you want to experience this all-time classic.
I don’t think Plenty of Fishies is a game based on the website with a similar name, but you never know. You take your chances.
Here’s the full list of the week’s releases:
Wii U eShop
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Virtual Console)
Quadcopter Pilot Challenge
Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3
Mercenaries Saga 2
eShop sales on Wii U
Ittle Dew – reduced from $9.99 to $4.99 until July 30.
