Smash demo for 3DS and some classic VC love for the Wii U this week.

Nintendo is gearing up for the Saturday release of Super Smash Bros. on Nintendo 3DS in Japan by giving gamers a chance to try out the game a few days before the release with nice shiny demo! It’s a bit rare to see demos for Nintendo published games on the Japanese eShop, so this was a nice surprise! The demo features five characters and can be played up to 30 times. If you want to read more about it, be sure to check out Neal’s latest hands-on preview here.

Aside from the Smash Bros. love, the Wii U also has a few notable titles that were released digitally. Mighty Switch Force - Hyper Drive Edition finally made its way to Japanese audiences after having a few years head start in other regions. There are also some Virtual Console titles to round out the release list with Breath of Fire (SNES), Mario Golf: Advance Tour (GBA) and the Famicom fighter Flying Dragon: The Secret Scroll.
