Sure, there are a few new releases on Wii U, but this week the eShop's really all about the 3DS. For starters, if you've yet to grab a code for the Super Smash Bros.
demo, the good news is it'll be available for all starting 9AM PT/midday ET tomorrow, September 19. The demo includes Mario, Link, Pikachu, the Villager and Mega Man (where's my Wii Fit Trainer dangit!) and a single stage, namely Battlefield. Other things to note
: The demo supports local multiplayer but not online, its save data isn't compatible with the full game, and like other eShop demos you can only open it 30 times. If you'd rather wait it out, the game proper hits stores on October 3.
If you're more a lover than a fighter, there are plenty of other activities to explore on the go. Musical types can take on Theatrhyhtm Final Fantasy Curtain Call
, which Danny Cowan said "easily surpasses its predecessor" in our review
, and there are fishing RPG (yup) and culinary larks in Legend of the River King 2
and Cooking Mama 5
. River King dev Natsume has another Virtual Console game this week in arcade-style western shooter Wild Guns
, available on Wii U.
As ever and ever, the full list of new releases is below the break. Also, the pre-Smash
sale is still ongoing - check out this weeks offering
