Wii U releases in Europe? Let it gooooooooo.
Most of the attention is focused on the 3DS this week in the downloads. North America gets the third straight week (and 4th of 5 weeks) of retail releases with Disney Magical World 2, which is pushing Frozen so hard you'd think it had a Superman Punch. Three other titles rock the eShop as well, as Falcom (Ys) hits the eShop with PC/PSP title Gurumin 3D, Aksys localizes ex-CING staff's CHASE: Cold Case Investigations and DrinkBox Studios lands Severed on the platform.
The Virtual Console(s) have Animal Crossing: Wild World (standard disclaimer: no wireless functions) and Kirby: Canvas Curse from the DS for Wii U, while the big mover on the Wii U eShop is Dolores Entertainment's intriguing co-op RPG Bit Dungeon+.
Europe only has three games this week, and they're all on 3DS. Aside from Disney Magical World 2 and CHASE (note: My Nintendo members can drop 20 Gold coins for 20% off) there's a CIRCLE RPG from a few months ago in North America: Ash. Sadly, it's not Pokemon's greatest route, 113, which constantly rains little bits of Ash.
