I hope you’re going to the store tomorrow to pick up Duck Hunt Amiibo.
The big game of the week – at least in terms of sales potential – is of course, Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer. It brings with it Amiibo cards, exclusive eShop themes if you drop $40/$45 on it, and… well, you should probably read Bryan’s review to see if it’s worth the risk.
The Wii U has a big week in the eShop though, as the highly anticipated Starwhal and Nova-111 debut on the Wii U, and Extreme Exorcism is already out and with a Nindies @ Home discount to boot. The Virtual Console will be on fire with the release of the upgrade-eligible The Ignition Factor.
In Europe, it’s Extreme Exorcism, Nova-111 and several bits of catchup from the US, plus the stanking Curve Digital sale we saw last week (67% off, good lord).
