This week’s Nintendo Download features the number-one most played game on my 3DS. I’m not talking about an entry in the Pokémon franchise; I’m talking (of course) about Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked, which will be released on the Nintendo eShop today to complement its retail release from a while back. It was even featured in our Top 10 Handheld Games article!
I feel like I’m forgetting something…oh, right. Pokémon X&Y comes out on October 12th, 2013 in North America. So, there’s an RPG for everyone, and an RPG for the niche crowd. What else is heading to us this week? The Wii U Virtual Console is getting Tennis and Golf respectively. The 3DS eShop is being graced with Aqua Moto Racing 3D, Super Black Bass 3D, and Escape from Zombie City. And lastly, Zombie Blaster is available via DSiWare.
There’s plenty to look forward to! I know it’s going to be super-tempting for me not to double-dip for a digital version of Devil Survivor Overclocked. Such an amazing game! Here’s the full press release, straight from Nintendo:
