It’s time to head back to the farm as Natsume released Harvest Moon: Skytree Village for the 3DS this week. Now available to download through the 3DS eShop, Skytree Village asks players to revive the land through terraforming and “new and easy farming mechanics.”
Also available on the 3DS this week is Cartoon Network Battle Crashers, a crossover brawler from GameMill starring Gumball, Steven Universe, Finn (Adventure Time), Mordecai (Regular Show), and Clarence. 3DS owners will also get a shot at vintage side-scrolling action this week with the Virtual Console launch of Mega Man X3, a Super NES classic that was originally released in 1995.
Over on the Wii U eShop, two more underrated Wii games are now available to download. Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles reformed the famous franchise as a light gun shooter, and Rhythm Heaven Fever smashed together more than 50 wild and wacky minigames that “teach players to feel the beat.”
You can read up on all of this week’s new additions to the Nintendo eShop after the break.
