Rhythm Heaven Megamix 1

While Nintendo already announced their E3 sale on the eshop (covered by Josh here), today they released some new games and introduced some brand new deals. Rhythm Heaven Remix is the standout of the list as it was shown off and sent into the wild just yesterday. Terraria also finds its way to another distribution platform. Super Paper Mario hits the virtual console on the Wii U while Mega Man 7 does the same for the 3DS.

Yup, seems like an M rated game.

Sale wise BoxBoy has been added to the E3 sale with 40% taken off the $4.99 USD price. Renegade Kid, the developers of the excellent Mutant Mudds, have a bunch of their titles on sale as well. The strangest out the bunch is Secret Agent Files: Miami, a point-click adventure mixed with hidden object game that happens to be rated M. It’s down from $7.99 USD to $4.99 USD.

And in the bypassed category is a demo of a game called The Legend of the Dark Witch 2. This anime platformer is developed by Japanese studio Inside System and contains a bunch shooting action through 8 different stages. Your witch can customize her stats and attacks to fine the right balance to take on the bosses that await you at the end of each level.
