This week shows off a strong selection of downloadable titles across both the 3DS and Wii U. For the first time in a while, 3DS users will have the opportunity to sink a great deal of time into a challenging, rewarding game – especially those who elected to upgrade to the New Nintendo 3DS XL earlier this year.
The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is a remake/expansion of the instant classic flash title The Binding of Isaac. This new version features updated graphics, more playable characters, new enemies, bosses and items. The game is a punishing rouge-like and has been extremely popular on Steam in it’s short life. Rebirth is available on the Wii U and 3DS eShop, but you will need a New 3DS XL if you plan to play this one on the go.
Hitting the virtual console this week is 3D Streets of Rage 2. This title is a full remaster of the Sega classic, built from the ground up exclusively for the 3DS. The game is a hybrid of classic platforming action and 2D fighting games. It is available on the eShop on July 23.
DK Jungle Climber is the latest Nintendo DS title to hit the Wii U virtual console. This title plays more like a puzzle game rather than a traditional Donkey Kong platformer, but if you missed it on the DS it might be worth replaying here.
