Welcome to the brand spanking new Nintendo focused post aiming to deliver the latest and greatest Nintendo releases straight to you on a weekly basis. Though we do not appear to have a massive selection of popular titles to discuss, there are still a few diamonds in the rough. Speaking of rough, it seems to be a slow week for the Wii U after Super Smash Bros Wii U and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker stole the show last week. Thankfully it’s not completely devoid of games with 3 new titles hitting between this week and next, one of which being the 1992 e-shop re-release of Crash ‘n the Boys Street Challenge.

The Nintendo 3DS however has a lineup which most might find a little brighter with the Phoenix Wright Trilogy and of the forever loved Harvest Moon 3 leading the charge. This week is a fantastic for those of you with younglings as many of the releases are targeted at a much younger demographic. If you find yourself craving something a little more hardcore, then Xeodrifter may well be right up your alley. The game shows itself as an old school to the core speedy little platformer.

Our Recommendation

If you have a Wii U then it might be best to hold out at the moment, with no titles really screaming “buy me!” at the moment. If you absolutely must then Lucadian Chronicles seems like an interesting card game with some real pretty art. On the 3DS front however. Phoneix Wright Trilogy and Harvest Moon 3 are the obvious choices, with Xeodrifter also looking like a great purchase.
