"Kid season!" "Squid season!" "KID SEASON!" "SQUID SEASON!"

Of course, there's a giant cephalopod in the room this week in the Nintendo eShop update, and that's Splatoon. Hopefully when the game goes live at midnight, it's more like the first three global testfires instead of the last one's first half.

But the Wii U is wrapping up Mega May with the fourth Mega Man Battle Network game(s) and Mega Man Zero, while indie darling Don't Starve makes its debut on Nintendo platforms with a unique promotion: buying the game for $15+tax gets you a code to give to a friend. Or your worst enemy on the Nintendo World Report forums. Rival Turf is unmemorable... well, except for its box art.

It's a slow week for the 3DS, but Circle Entertainment is observing Memorial Day a few days late with the second Glory of Generals game, focusing on the Pacific theater. Also a DSiWare release, because why not.

I haven't gotten any 3DS themes yet, but man, I've seen the Eevee and Evolutions theme, and it's too darn cute to pass up...

I've never heard of this game before but if it is what I think it is, it sounds like it will make for a great time. I like to love.

Still waiting on Mario Kart 64...

It's odd that Splatoon is full price in the US but reduced price in Europe.
