May the Fourth be with all our followers! Nintendo has announced the latest and greatest editions to the eShop spanning across its three consoles. Wouldn’t it have been cool to see updates for four consoles, on this, May the Fourth?
It seems that Nintendo is counting on everyone continuing to play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe this week as there is only a pair of titles available on the Switch. NBA Playgrounds will be available on May 9 in case you like the non-traditional basketball game. This is a two-on-two style game that includes tons of players both current and retired. In case you were on the fence with Blaster Master Zero, there is now a demo version available.
The Wii U is the star of the show in today’s release as it has count’em five new titles. The TurboGrafx-16 virtual console expands by one with Bonk’s Revenge. It is a side-scrolling action game where you jump and hit your enemies. You can expand your attack power by eating meat. There are eight bonus stages to complete in addition to the main game! Also available are Triple Breakout, WinKings, Citadale – The Legends Trilogy, and FIFTEEN.
The 3DS shares the Blaster Master Zero demo from the Switch eShop and also Triple Breakout from the Wii U. If you are looking for a unique title, then you only have Infinite Golf. There are two different modes to check out. There is the normal arcade mode where you get three chances to return the ball to it’s home. Or check out endless mode where points do not matter.
