Nintendo Downloads – October 15, 2015

They say the News Editor’s heart grew three sizes that day.

After a head-scratching delay of an entire season and a bit, North America finally gets Yoshi’s Woolly World this week on the eShop as the headliner for Wii U. It’s also sold at a discount compared to regular Wii U titles because of the Yarn Yoshi Amiibo, which melt even this writer’s icy heart. The retail stream is kicking up on the 3DS as well, with the release of Legend of Legacy and a couple of children’s titles, and Zelda and an extreme number of Butodens next week.

In download news, the 3DS has an intriguing sequel to the Petit Computer DSiWare titles in the form of SmileBASIC, if you feel like conquering the world with a simple bit of code. The Wii U gets an interesting sounding pinball game and Final Fight One – a complete edition of the SNES’s Final Fight for GBA with a restored stage – on the Virtual Console.

Meanwhile, in Europe… everything is happening. There’s permanent first party price drops, 3DS fighting games, enough themes to choke a horse and I swear there’s a DSiWare game. And it’s not even a GG Series game. Truly, this is the age of releases.

Releasing Crunchroll for Wii in October 2015? I'm all for adding more support to systems, but why add that to Wii? Are there still people who only own a Wii clamoring for anime content?

Well a lot more people bought the Wii and things like Netflix are still very popular on it since many of the casuals find owning a Wii for these services good enough and one of the reasons they never upgraded to a Wii U.  True anime is way more niche but it certainly doesn't hurt to see if offering it on the Wii might increase business since there's still millions more using their Wii's for streaming so the potential is there.

Yikes, I was so blown away by the $8 DSiWare game I missed that.  In addition to Luigi Dude's points, if they still have games mostly listed by best selling and newest releases (haven't been on the shop in a while) then any WiiWare game will by default be on the latter list for some time.  Who knows if it'll turn out to be worthwhile but the possibility is there.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2, you guys.

So good.

Pretty sure, you can get it retail cheaper than 20$
