This Week’s Batch of eShop Games Is Excellent

It's on like Donkey Kong.

Nintendo finally managed to get their digital offerings right after two wrong starts with DSiWare and WiiWare, with the Nintendo eShop. Their digital offerings have been wholly excellent, and their unusual progressiveness in putting all retail games on there has been a boon as far as convenience is concerned.

This week’s eShop offerings are similarly great- Wii U owners finally get to play Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, the latest installment in Nintendo’s long running, ape starring platformer franchise, developed by star studio Retro (of Metroid Prime fame).

The 3DS might not be getting a major release like that this week, but the digital offerings are great- first up is the last of the Guild01 games (which also include Crimson Shroud, Liberation Maiden, and Aero Maiden), Weapon Shop de Omasse, wherein you are the blacksmith crafting weapons for great heroes on quests to save the world or something.

Yes, it’s playing an RPG from an all new perspective.

Other games released include Level 5’s Inazuma Eleven, the soccer sim/RPG hybrid that finally releases in the US, as well as the first three episodes of the Inazuma Eleven anime for free on the Nintendo eShop.

Stay tuned for our reviews.
