This week's Nintendo Download brings a legendary game to the Wii U Virtual Console, offers a handful of decent sales, and has a few adventurous games of note. To start with: Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 ($39.99) arrived on the Nintendo 3DS eShop this past Tuesday. This game was developed to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the franchise, so expect plenty of added challenge and surprises.
The Wii U eShop brings Roving Rogue ($7.99), a clever platformer that...starts at the end of the story, then works its way backwards. You play as Kurt, a heroic rouge who teleports his way across some forty challenging levels racing against rising lava, collapsing walls, and fearsome foes. There's even a multiplayer element to the game. But stay tuned for more from me on Roving Rogue; I'll have a review up in the coming days!
This week's Virtual Console release is Ocarina of Time. I wonder how many people prefer the Nintendo 64 game over the visually remastered Ocarina of Time 3D. At least you can play this one on your television!
This week's noteworthy sales feature some Ace Attorney games on Nintendo 3DS. For starters, Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies will be $16.79 (regular $29.99). And the Ace Attorney Trilogy is $22.49 (regular $29.99). These two games will be on sale until July 16th. Last but not least, this week's themes feature four flavors of Ace Attorney (two from Dual Destinies and two from Ace Attorney Trilogy) and two more flavors of PokÃ©mon (Mega Charizard Y & Mega Rayquaza, plus "Eevee Collection - Espeon & Umbreon).
That about covers it for this week. Be sure to check the eShop when it updates at 12:00 PM ET, 9 AM PT for even more sales and additional information.
