Jack the Ripper Terrorizes Nintendo eShop, Guild 01 Titles Go On Sale [Update]



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.)
