It’s another extremely solid week on the download front in Japan.

The eShop in Japan is experiencing another busy week with a bevy of downloadable titles on both the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. While Famicom Remix 2 is the head-liner for the Wii U download titles this week, that didn’t stop the likes of Mega Man 5, Castlevania: Dracula X, and the Japan only Quarth from making appearances.

The 3DS line-up might have a few weak entries, but it is more than made up for with Square Enix’s rhythm series, Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call and newest 3D classic from Sega, 3D OutRun. Heck, even more Final Fantasy snuck in on the 3DS Virtual Console this week with Final Fantasy III, the last Famicom era Final Fantasy title to hit the service. On top of all this, there are a few new demos, digital comics (well, one this week), and pet simulators. For a complete look at this week’s round-up of releases on the eShop in Japan, check out the list below!

yay for the crap version of Dracula X!

I actually really like being able to play the PC Engine version on the Gamepad during downtime... mmmh, the PC Engine version is -SO- good, but not that SNES/Super Famicom one.

Seriously, I want to punch the chucklehead who thought bottomless pits during the Dracula fight was a good idea. >_>;;
