The eShop is heating up for the holiday season.

It’s another busy week on both the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U eShops in Japan. The 3DS is starting to see the beginning of what is looking to be a promising holiday season for gamers in Japan. There are some demos that hit the digital space for some pretty big titles including Etrian Odyssey II Untold, Final Fantasy Explorers, and Samurai Chronicles 3. Not only that, but anime fans can get the latest One Piece retail release on Nintendo’s handheld this week too.

The Wii U is getting one of the bigger home releases this week in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, which goes on sale Thursday. Nintendo also finally released a demo version for Pikmin 3 on the system, ramping up the number of available demos to around a dozen. To cap things off, the Virtual Console on Wii U is still running at a good pace with the release of both Mega Man Battle Network 2 (GBA) and Crash ’n the Boys: Street Challenge.
