Nintendo Download for 7/3/2014: Mario Tennis Championship Turbo edition

by: Russell -

As I've said before, creative titles aren't my forte.  Anyway, let's check out this week's eShop releases and deals.

Wii U:

  • Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition - Wow, I wonder where they came up with that name.  It's almost as if it's parodying something.  Anyway, Guacamelee is an action-platformer where you can explore towns and temples while unlocking new luchador powers.  Sounds like a mix of a platformer with a wrestling game...I can get behind that.
  • Armillo - Armillo is a 3D action platformer that mixes classic and new gameplay elements.  While Armillo can use the Wii U Pro Controller, the game also supports optional tilt controls.
  • Mario Tennis: Power Tour - Another Game Boy Advance title hits the Wii U as the second portable game in the Mario Tennis series hits the system.

3DS:

  • Tomodachi Life Demo - If you're still on the fence about picking up Tomodachi Life, you can now download a demo to see if it's a game for you.  I gave the game a 7.4 rating (Above Average) as the game is fun at first, but it can get monotonous after a while.  Still an interesting game though.
  • Squids Odyssey - A mix of action and turn-based RPG elements where you build a team of heroes and take charge against corrupted crabs and shrimp.  Sounds...interesting.

Keep reading for more of this weeks' deals, including Just Dance 2014 getting a $10 discount as well as a sale on two games in the Etrian Odyssey series.

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.
