Nintendo Download - Artist's Representation of the Nintendo eShop | oprainfall

There’s not a whole lot of new stuff in this week’s Nintendo Download. The most significant editions to both the Wii U and 3DS eShops are new additions to their Virtual Consoles.  The Wii U Virtual Console gets Mighty Bomb Jack for the NES ($4.99) and the 3DS Virtual Console gets Life Force for the NES ($4.99). Also, the free trial for Wii Fit U will expire on January 31st. After it expires, you’ll need to purchase a Fit Meter accessory for $19.99 and sync it up with the game.

There are also some special discounts on the 3DS eShop. Shin Megami Tensei IV has its price reduced to $29.99 from January 27th to February 3rd and Fractured Soul will be available for $5.99 from today until 9 AM on February 6th. What the press release doesn’t mention is that Project X Zone has had its price permanently reduced to $19.99, probably to match its current retail price.

In addition to video games available at retail stores, Nintendo also offers a variety of content that people can download directly to their systems. Nintendo adds new titles weekly to the Nintendo eShop for the Wii U system as well as the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL systems, to the Nintendo DSi™ Shop for the Nintendo DSi system and to the Wii™ Shop Channel for the Wii console.

The Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service that features games, applications and videos. Users can add money to their account balances by using a credit card or by purchasing a Nintendo Prepaid Card at a retail store and entering the code from the card. All funds from one card must be loaded in the Nintendo eShop on either Wii U or Nintendo 3DS, but can be used in either Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single Nintendo Network account.

The Wii Shop Channel offers games and applications and uses Wii Points™, which can be purchased via the Wii Shop Channel. The Nintendo DSi Shop offers games and applications and uses Nintendo DSi Points™, which can be purchased in the Nintendo DSi Shop. A Wii Points Card™ and Nintendo DSi Points Card™ can be purchased at retail locations. All points from one card must be redeemed in either the Wii Shop Channel or the Nintendo DSi Shop, respectively. They are not transferable and cannot be divided between the two systems.

Remember that Wii U, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL and Nintendo DSi feature parental controls that let adults manage some of the content their children can access.

    Nintedo sure seems lazy with eShop…

  • Brodie Dayton-Mills

    What was that thing called..? Yu-Gi-Oh Stocks and Bonds? Digimon Investments? Pokemon Bank? It’s been so long I can hardly remember…

  • James Best

    At least we have a release date for Shovel Knight. It’s months away, but at least we have it.

  • Wildcardcorsair

    Still no Pokemon Bank eh… *cries* oh well.

  • I haven’t bought an eshop game since Friday Night Monsters, which I loved. I feel like it’s barely updated, and I don’t bother checking.
