Nintendo Download for February 1, 2018 – North America

This week it feels like the barrel has been stuffed to the brim with new content.  There’s got to be something for everyone in this release.  There’s Wii U titles, 3DS games, in addition to the massive Switch list.  On top of that, there’s new DLC, 3DS themes, My Nintendo Rewards, a massive celebration for the Fire Emblem Heroes anniversary.  Each week, Nintendo releases their list of new eShop games, discounts, and more, and we’ve got all the details.

There’s so much content that it’s hard to get a full summary.  So I’ll leave it to you to go over the listing below for the full details and release information.  As always, the full release list is below, along with the prices (in the US), just below the screenshots.
