Fluidity And Mega Man Hop To Nintendo eShop; Trine 2 Gets Discounted

Nintendo 3DS eShop Update:


This week’s Nintendo eShop update brings three different platformers with it. Fluidity: Spin Cycle is one of them, and is a game where you control a body of water that can switch between liquid, solid and gaseous forms. Fluidity: Spin Cycle is controlled by tilting the 3DS, and for that reason, stereoscopic 3D output is disabled entirely. The game costs $10.99.


The other two are Virtual Console releases—Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels and Mega Man for $4.99 each.


Also on the 3DS eShop this week are Johnny Impossible, a “stealth platformer” for $5.99 and Mahjong 3D: Warriors of the Emperor for $9.99.


Wii U eShop Update:


While there are no new games headed to the Wii U eShop this week, Nintendo are running holiday deals on three of the download games that are already available. They are as follows:

Trine 2: Director’s Cut – $15.99 (normally $19.99)

Little Inferno – $9.99 (normally $14.99)

Chasing Aurora – $7.49 (normally $14.99)

European eShop Update:

Over in Europe, Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels is available for €4.99/£4.49. Meanwhile, Lego Lord of the Rings gets a free downloadable demo, and Agetec’s Rabi Laby finally sees a DSiWare release for 200 points.

    But we also got Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels. :)

  • Mizu D

    Trine 2 is astonishly beautiful and worth the price considering it has the director cut version that is out on PC too.

  • Elvick

    $5 for Mega Man?

    I really dislike the VC pricing.

    • Haseyo

      I agree. If it were Mega Man 1-3 or something, even 1 and 2 for $5 then okay. But just for one? Outrageous.

      • Elvick

        Yeah, bundles for $5 would be better.

    • Miss_Madness

      Yes it wasn’t like Megaman 10 or 11 cost more than that.

      • Elvick

        There is no 11.

        Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10 were NEW GAMES, that aren’t over 20 years old for the oldest ones.

        Nice try.

        NES games shouldn’t cost a dollar less than most PSone games on PSN.

    The fact the Wii U eShop already has sales going on makes me happy & hopeful that we’ll see more discounts/sales in the future, considering how the Wii’s Shop had pretty much none.

    Great, more 3DS Virtual Console releases that I already paid for once on Wii VC. I much prefer Sony’s strategy where I buy a digital version of a PS1 game once and can then play it on ALL of my systems – PS3, PSP, Vita.

    This really shows a good example of Nintendo needing to do a better job of having a unified account that goes with you and isn’t tied to one system. Every time I see a new VC release that I paid for on Wii just a few years ago, it makes me angry at Nintendo – not really a great feeling to be giving to your long time supporters.
