batmanarkhamorigins-header

It’s a big week for Nintendo’s eShop. It’s like a stealthy intruder who sneaks up on you unsuspectingly, except instead of a blade to the throat or a judo chop to the back of the head, this ninja/assassin delivers a giant pile of new games into your arms. So let’s get to it…

The ninjas are covered by Batman: Arkham Origins (Wii U) and Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate (3DS). Both games chronicle the rise of The Dark Knight (albeit in different stories) and they’ll both be available to download tomorrow. Arkham Origins also features plenty of assassins, but Edward Kenway, The Assassin, will leap onto the Wii U this week. While Ubisoft has no plans to bring the game’s DLC expansions to the system, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be downloadable through your Wii U on Tuesday, October 29.

Also available on the 29th is Sonic’s first Wii U adventure, Sonic: Lost World The blue hedgehog’s latest game will also spin dash its way to the 3DS on the same day.

Finally, if you’re looking to download something today, Capcom has released the fifth game in the Phoenix Wright series, Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies. It’s not available in stores and is only available through the 3DS eShop.

More information on all of these games (and many others) is available after the break.
