Starring puzzles, dragons, and a most unwanted return.
Clearly, the big release of the week for the 3DS eShop is Puzzle and Dragons Z/Super Mario Edition. In fact, the game's been available for preload for a couple of weeks, so you might already have it. For those on the fence, check out the demo and Zach's review to see if it's worth dropping $30/$35 on.
The Wii U has a pretty busy week, however. In addition to Swords and Soldiers II, there's two Virtual Console releases in the form of Super EDF and Mega Man Zero II, plus some potentially interesting indie stuff. Unfortunately, we have to warn you that the makers of The Letter and Maze have returned with something called "Journey of a Special Average Balloon".
But who cares about all that, there's a Swapnote theme this week! I'm here to tell you NIKKI'S ALIVE!
