Nintendo-eShop-Downloads

After a few weeks of light releases before Super Mario Maker, it’s nice to see Nintendo and third parties stepping it up with several great releases for the past two weeks. Super Mario Maker was the heavy hitter last week, but this week there are a few games that are worthy of your attention as well.

Of course as previously mentioned, Shovel Knight’s Plague of Shadows DLC is out now, so if you were a big fan of the puzzle platforming in the original game, be sure to check out this DLC expansion. It’s absolutely free to those who already own the base game.

Other new additions this week include the puzzler Year Walk, a unique atmospheric puzzler that will put the Wii U GamePad to good use. Also up is the digital version of Skylanders SuperChargers, which comes with digital versions of the included figurines. If you already have a Portal of Power from purchasing one of the other sets, then this is a great way to check out the new game without buying another starter kit.

Nintendo eShop on Wii U

Year Walk – Lose yourself in an ancient rite that bleeds from the TV screen into our world through the Wii U GamePad controller. Use the second screen in your hands to study a mysterious folklore encyclopedia, decipher hints and take notes. Solve tactile puzzles using motion controls, and listen for clues through the GamePad.

Skylanders SuperChargers Portal Owner’s Pack – Kick your adventure into overdrive! The Skylanders SuperChargers Portal Owner’s Pack includes the full video game, works with any Portal of Power from the Skylanders series and includes digital versions of the Instant Spitfire and Instant Hot Streak. Expand your game-play experience with more than 40 Skylanders and vehicles to collect, and embark on epic adventures over land, under sea and through the sky. Skylanders Superchargers will be available in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U on Sept. 20. (Note: A Portal of Power is required to play, sold separately.)

Nintendo eShop on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS

Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows – Download this free DLC for hit game Shovel Knight on Wii U or Nintendo 3DS and embark on a new adventure starring Plague Knight, the addled alchemical master of disaster!

Virtual Console on Wii U
