More On: Nintendo Download Blaster Master Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan Etrian Mystery Dungeon Code of Princess Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers

Kind of like last week there isn't that much new stuff coming to the eShops this week.  However, what we do get is well worth it as the NES hit Blaster Master comes to the Wii U eShop.  In Blaster Master you play as Jason who's chasing after his pet frog after it falls into a hole and ends up in a world filled with monsters.  Using a combat tank called SOPHIA you have to eliminate the mutants before they can destroy Earth.  While Blaster Master could be considered one of the tougher titles in the NES library, it's still a fun game and worth checking out.

Some of the current Wii U eShop sales in progress include 50% off Super Toy Cars (dropping it to $3.99) and uWordSmith ($0.99) until 8:59 a.m. PT on August 6th.  Over on the 3DS eShop Code of Princess, Etrian Mystery Dungeon, and Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan are all on sale until 8:59 a.m. PT on July 21st, Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers is 50% off ($14.99) until 8:59 a.m. PT on July 21st, and Bit Boy!! Arcade and PUZZLEBOX Setup are on sale until 8:59 a.m. PT on August 31st.
