The 3DS goes on vacation this week.

Last week was a huge week for the Nintendo 3DS. Not only did the platform see one of the biggest releases of the year in Monster Hunter 4G (Ultimate), Nintendo also launched the New 3DS. With that said, I can respect a bit of a vacation for the platform this week. The Wii U, on the other hand is business as usual. Ballpoint Universe is seeing a near simultaneous release with North America and the usual dose of Virtual Console games are back with Contra, Yoshi’s Island (GBA), Dig Dug and Street Fighter 2010. It may be a bit of an off week for the eShop in Japan, but there are still a handful of decent titles that are definitely worth your time. For a complete look at the releases this week, be sure to check out the round-up below!
