    Well they are exactly up… only Harmo Knight is, Fire Emblem, Code of Princess, Harvest moon and Resident Evil aren’t up yet.

    Edit: Fire Emblem is up now two hours late.

    • Thanks for that! I was going crazy!

  • handsome human

    i’d like to buy harmoknight but couldn’t even beat the bee in the demo version…

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      hit,hit…….hit,hit hit hit

  • I really hope that the Spring update brings a lot more Wii U updates for the store.

    The current releasing scheme for it is rather sad.

    • Spirit Macardi

      Same here. I love the console, but I have so few games to play for it. When VC finally comes to it I’m probably going to have a field day buying and downloading games x3

  • Armane

    But Code of Princess isn’t a retail title in the EU.

    • Sadly, it isn’t, it’s just digital only,

    • It’s a retail game in that it’s not an eShop-specific title in any territory. That was the main distinction.

      • Armane

        Semantics aside, it’s a new title in the territory, and should be treated as such in my opinion. As the article stands it has been lumped in with a bunch of titles that have been released previously and nothing suggests that it is in fact a new release.

  • Brimfyre

    I feel like something is seriously wrong at Nintendo.
    No updates on their eShop for their main console for weeks. People must be running around like chickens with their heads cut off over there.

  • Actually mercenaries is at 9’99€
    About Fire Emblem… did the US demo feature japanese voice tracks? Ours doesn’t… and that’s worrying me :/

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    ……..Tempo for Smash

  • JMaster3000

    Is it possible to delete the save on Resident Evil Mecenaries now?
    Cause 10 Euro is a pretty sweet for a game like that.

  • Harmo’s demo was awesome, I have to try and pick up the game sometime.

  • TheRealMalek

    WAY too much in a month (harmoknight Devil survivor code of princess fire emblem), couldn’t they have released it two months ago ?
