It is that time of the week again and the eShop’s have been updated with a series of new games, new sales and more new things. North American Nintendo owners have a few notable releases this week including two virtual console games for the DS library which are Yoshi’s Touch and Go (we can always use more Yoshi games), as well as Warioware Touched which is a great game for anyone who loves minigames. I will also note that Pokemon Rumble World arrived yesterday on the 3DS eShop and it is Nintendo’s latest Free to Play 3DS venture, Pokemon Rumble World is not bad but unlike Pokemon Shuffle it will not be everyone’s cup of tea. No matter what you want there is plenty on offer and you can see the full lineup below:
