Welcome to one of the biggest Nintendo Downloads ever. Level-5 (creator of the Professor Layton series) and Nicalis (creator of Cave Story) both have new games available that may be worth a look.
Liberation Maiden is an arcade shooter developed by Level-5 in conjunction with Suda 51’s Grasshopper Manufacture and is available today on the 3DS eShop. Also available to download from the eShop today is Nicalis’ NightSky, an “ambient” puzzle platformer that is sure to appeal to fans of Limbo.
The Virtual Console also gets a workout with today’s update as Ghosts ‘n Goblins and Castlevania: The Adventure have been added to the 3DS eShop while 1997’s Shock Troopers can now be downloaded to your Wii. Finally, the non-Virtual Console 18th Gate was added to the DSiWare Shop.
Two new Coin Rush DLC packs for New Super Mario Bros. 2 rounds out today’s update. The “Gold Mushroom Pack” and “Coin Challenge Pack B” have been priced at $2.50 apiece.
One extra game will be added to the 3DS eShop this week. Level-5’s Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask (look, we’ve come full circle) will be available to download on Sunday, October 28 (the same day its available in brick and mortar stores).
