Nintendo 3DS eShop Update:


This week’s Nintendo eShop update brings the release of Mystery Murders: Jack the Ripper to 3DS. This is a hidden object game set in Autumn 1888, where three individuals—a clairvoyant, a journalist and a police inspector—are attempting to solve the case of a series of murders. It costs $9.99.


Joining it is Circle Entertainment’s Witch & Hero, an 8-bit style top-down action game for $3.99 and Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo. Also available now is a download version of Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns for $29.99.


Additionally, as previously reported, Level 5’s Guild 01 titles are on sale starting today through the end of May. You can look up their discount prices here. Pokédex 3D Pro has also been on sale for a while for $9.99, and will return to its regular price on April 19th.


Wii U eShop Update:

Update: Kirby’s Adventure available for 30 cents. (For some reason, this wasn’t in Nintendo’s press release.)


You can view this week’s U.S. eShop update in its entirety here.


Nintendo 3DS eShop Update (EU):


Starting tomorrow, April 19th, Fire Emblem: Awakening will be available as a download in Europe. Meanwhile, Namco Bandai’s Dig Dug is available on 3DS Virtual Console for €3.99/£3.59. Joining it on the eShop is Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo for €4.99/£4.99.


Like in the U.S., Level 5’s Guild 01 titles are on discount sale in Europe as well. Again, you can look their prices up here. Additionally, Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward is on sale for €24.99/£19.99 (down from €40.00/£30.00) until May 2nd.

    Kirby’s Adventure is available for our European friends; but does anyone know when the next Famicom 30th anniversary game will be available in North America.

    • It /is/ out on the NA store, too! I just got it yesterday.

      • Repede91

        Thanks for the info, both of you. *Goes to purchase Kirby*

      Right now. Kirby’s Adventure went up today too. Not really sure why people thought it would be otherwise, it’s on a schedule that’s already out in the open.

      • Probably cause for some reason this post didn’t list it. A bit too used to nothing showing up on the Wii U shop, I guess!

    • @twitter-22097251:disqus @EggmaniMN:disqus Thanks for the heads up! Oddly, Nintendo of America didn’t mention Kirby in their press release which is why we didn’t list it earlier. Added now! Virtue’s Last Reward has been added, too. That one I simply missed. Thanks, @twitter-266773242:disqus.

        Even more odd is that they mentioned it in last week’s press release. They should have just planned those 30th Anniversary VC games to release on Thursdays, but Nintendo rolls how they want to roll. That’s one reason I like them.

  • We also got a discount for Virtue’s Last Reawrd in EU. It’s 25€ now I think.

  • I sure can’t wait until next week, when we’ll actually have something appear in that Wii U eShop section.

    Though you guys failed to mention that Kirby’s Adventure is 30 cents in NA, too, today, though it did go up yesterday.

    The price of the Jack The Ripper game is a little bit better in the US. In the UK it costs £18. I remember buying it on the PC a couple of years ago for £1.99. Yeah it’s the same game.
