Only one Virtual Console game has arrived on the North American Nintendo eShop this week. Nintendo Wii U owners can continue adding to their Pokémon collection by taking up the mantle of a Pokémon Ranger again in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs. It is the third and final entry in this spin-off series.
Originally released on the Nintendo DS in 2010, Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs takes place in the Oblivia Region. Pokémon Pinchers are attempting to use wild Pokémon, and many of the missions will involve thwarting their attempts. Friendship is an important focus, as Ukulele Pichu becomes your partner, after fixing his broken instrument, and Pokémon you’re friendly with can help you when you’re trying to use your styler to befriend other critters.
This Pokémon Ranger installment also offers multiple opportunities to interact and work with legendary Pokémon. The game begins by trying to help protect Latios or Latias. Eventually, you’ll earn the the ability to draw Guardian Sign emblems on the touch screen to summon Entei, Raikou, and Suicune.
Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs is $9.99 on the Nintendo Wii U.
