The Wii U continues to get a lot of love and the 3DS isn’t far behind.
A hodgepodge of releases are spread across the eShops this week with tons of genres represented on both Nintendo platforms. While the Wii U is getting more notable titles this week in Japan, there are still some cool releases on the 3DS this week. The Super Mario-kun manga, delivered via the Dokopon Choice series, sees its third release this week. For those out of the loop, Super Mario-kun is a manga series that features Mario and many characters from the Mario universe. It’s not exactly canonical (is anyone honestly keeping track?), but it has different settings from tons of different Mario related games ranging from Super Mario World, Luigi’s Mansion, Super Mario 3D World, and more. It's primarily aimed at kids and has unfortunately never seen a release outside of Japan. The first issue was published in the early ‘90s and the series still sees new releases to this day.
Changing gears to the Wii U side of things, a few big name Western titles have finally made their way to the eShop in Japan - Armillo and Art of Balance. The Virtual Console is still pumping out titles this week bringing gamers in Japan Gomoku Narabe Renju (a Nintendo published version of the Japanese game Go), Nobunaga’s Ambition, and Final Fight 3.
