Okay, the title needs work, but it highlights the two main releases this week on the eShop. First up we have Pushmo World, the Wii U debut of the popular Pushmo series. Push and pull blocks to climb to the top as well as create your own puzzles. If you're still not sure if you want to pick this one up, check out Matt's review of Pushmo World.
Over on the Virtual Console we have Super Dodge Ball. You control a team of six players (three in-court, three out-of-court) and basically try to eliminate the other team. In single-player you control Team USA and take on teams from around the world including China and Russia, while in two-player mode each person can pick from any team in the game. Each player has their own power shots they can activate with careful timing while running or jumping. Overall it's a very fun game and one of my favorites for the NES.
Along with new releases we also have a few sales going on:

Also new this week:
In addition to video games available at retail stores, Nintendo also offers a variety of content that people can download directly to their systems. Nintendo adds new games weekly to the Nintendo eShop on the Wii U system, as well as the Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo 3DS XL systems, the Nintendo DSi?? Shop for the Nintendo DSi system and the Wii?? Shop Channel for the Wii console.
The Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service that features a wide variety of content, including new and classic games, applications and demos. Users can add money to their account balances by using a credit card or purchasing a Nintendo eShop Card at a retail store and entering the code from the card. All funds from one card must be loaded in the Nintendo eShop on either Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can be used in either Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single Nintendo Network account.
The Wii Shop Channel offers games and applications and uses Wii Points??, which can be purchased via the Wii Shop Channel. The Nintendo DSi Shop offers games and applications and uses Nintendo DSi Points??, which can be purchased in the Nintendo DSi Shop. A Wii Points Card?? and Nintendo DSi Points Card?? can be purchased at retail locations. All points from one card must be redeemed in either the Wii Shop Channel or the Nintendo DSi Shop, respectively. They are not transferable and cannot be divided between the two systems.
Remember that Wii U, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo DSi feature parental controls that let adults manage some of the content their children can access.
