If you're a fan of the Ace Attorney series but kind of got a late start on it, you'll be happy to know that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy launched this week on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. The trilogy remasters the first three games in the Ace Attorney series and puts them all in one package for fans of the series to enjoy. If being an attorney isn't your thing, how about building a farm? Harvest Moon 3 from the Game Boy Color hits the 3DS Virtual Console this week as you'll help a friend rebuild his family farm by growing vegetables, care for animals, and go fishing.
Meanwhile on the Wii U's Virtual Console we have Crash 'N the Boys Street Challenge where you take control of one of four high school teams through five events: the 400-meter Hurdles, Hammer Throw, Swimming, Rooftop Jumping, and Judo. I have the actual cartridge for the NES and for some reason I was never that good at this game. Might have to dust this one off and give it another shot.
Finally we have the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Photo Challenge. Through December 16th fans of SSB for Wii U can post a snapshot to Miiverse based around a certain theme. Once the challenge ends, Mr. Sakurai and the games' developers will select and announce a handful of their favorites. The theme for this challenge is "Eat", so I suspect a lot of entries will be Kirby related.
