No 3DS home menu themes in Japan yet, but there is still plenty happening on Nintendo’s digital storefront this week.

It’s back to being a busy week on the eShops in Japan. While most gamers in the West are in love with their new 3DS home menu themes, that is still something 3DS owners in Japan are going to have to wait a little while longer for. In the meantime there is still plenty to tide gamers over on both the 3DS and Wii U.

Not only is the New Nintendo 3DS coming out this Saturday, the latest iteration of Monster Hunter is on its way as well. The Virtual Console on Nintendo’s handheld is still in hibernation, but there are still several other titles on the service that gamers could take a chance on. The Wii U might not be seeing any downloadable titles this week, but as per usual, there are a few Virtual Console games that gamers can their hands on. Life Force, Mega Man X3, and a Famicom classic in Japan called Tsuppari Ōzumō (Sumo Push) were all added to the service this week. If you want to see what the sumo game is all about, I’ve included a video below to check out the Famicom Tecmo take on the sport.

I wonder if Danny will download 4G on day 1?
A great way to break in his New 3DS on Saturday.

Shame the "breaking in" process will be no longer than 30 minutes!  :P:
