Nintendo Download | Moon Chronicles

There are two games in this week’s Nintendo Download that some of us have been waiting quite some time for. The first one I’ll mention is Moon Chronicles from Renegade Kid. If you don’t already know from our previous coverage, this is a first-person shooter for the Nintendo 3DS: it’s got action, about five years of history, and even Circle Pad Pro support! If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to check out my interview with Jools from PAX East 2014 that mentions Moon Chronicles.

Next up: Scram Kitty and His Buddy on Rails from Dakko Dakko, arriving on Nintendo Wii U. I got a chance to play this game at E3 2013—even though it’s been quite some time since then, I haven’t forgotten what a good time I had! Be sure to check it out.

Also new this week: Wii Party U will be available digitally starting tomorrow, May 16th. Mega May continues with the release of Mega Man IV on the 3DS Virtual Console. And the Wii U gets Adventures of Lolo on its Virtual Console. This week in sales—Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor – Overclocked will be $14.99 from May 19th ‘til June 2nd. That’s the lowest digital price I’ve seen—and considering how big a fan of that game I am, I think it’d be criminal to avoid it! But that’s just me.

As usual, check out the full Press Release below for some trailers, as well as more information about each and every game released this week!
