Nintendo Download eShop logo

We begin this week’s Nintendo Download with a correction. It appears that only one Castlevania game was releasing this week; that being Harmony of Dissonance. Those of you that were waiting for Aria of Sorrow will have to wait one more week. However, Wii U owners will have plenty of other games to play this week as Ballpoint Universe, Paper Monsters Recut, and Lone Survivor: The Director’s Cut release for the system.

Meanwhile, the 3DS line-up is a bit light this week, with Pyramids 2 and Harvest Moon 2 GBC as the main events this week. However, it is evened out as a number of great games are on sale in the eShop. SteamWorld Dig and Squids Odyssey are on sale for both systems. Trine 2: Director’s Cut is at half off. And Atlus is placing a number of its games on sale, including the 3DS Etrian Odyssey games.

We are at the mid-point of one of the busiest months in gaming and it looks to get even busier by the time it’s all said and done. Along with Aria of Sorrow, the eShop will be receiving Bayonetta 2, Fantasy Life, and Pokemon Art Academy next week. The following week, the Virtual Console will see releases of Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land from the GBA, Demon’s Crest from the SNES, and Gargoyle’s Quest II: The Demon Darkness from the NES (Gargoyle’s Quest II will release on both 3DS and Wii U). Plus, we are still awaiting the release of Costume Quest 2 sometime this month.

    It’s that just me, but “Master Reboot” is not on sale this week ! Still at full price on the eShop.

    • TrueWiiMaster

      Yeah, I noticed that. Maybe the sale starts later in the week. Sometimes they include sales in the list if they start after this Thursday, but before next Thursday.

    This is a great week. I bought Guacamelee and Squids Odyssey today, and I’m seriously considering Ball Point Universe and/or Paper Monsters. I think I’ll also take this opportunity to get my brother a few indies as a belated birthday gift.

      I agree, I also bought Guacamelee last week. This week Squids and Steamworld.If Master Reboot come at the stated price, it will go in the pile of game that need to be play. I can wait to see what the next week bring us ?

    • Ghis

      I didn’t see that the promotion only start the 22 Oct. for Master Reboot !

      They could have started it the 23 to fit with the next Nintendo Download. It would have been far more easy to understand.
