Nintendo Weekly: New Releases for August 12 – August 18

After some of the biggest recent titles got massive content updates last week, Nintendo is offering some great downloadable content this week that players can pick up. A Wii title is being made available on the Wii U eShop, and Pokemon players can get their hands on a mythical monster for free.

Our Recommendation

Pandora’s Tower is one of the many Wii games that received a limited release and was typically hard to find. Getting your hands on a copy these days may prove difficult, and the game has been rated very highly by fans. Now, the title will be available digitally on the Wii U, so anyone who missed it has another chance to pick it up.

Pandora's Tower depicts a young woman's gruesome transformation into a deadly beast.

Wind-Up Knight 2 is a fast-paced action platformer that relies on relentless running to keep you on your toes. The character you control has to run, jump and roll his way out of dangerous enemies. The game is available only on the Wii U eShop.


Nintendo 3DS

Players of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire can get exclusive shiny Rayquazza with the hidden move Dragon Ascent. This creature can mega evolve, a new feature in the Pokemon series. The Pokemon is tied to the launch of the new TCG set, and it especially notable as shiny Pokemon are extra rare.
