Just Dance 2014 Leads Charge For This Week's Nintendo Releases
It's a somewhat mixed bag on the Nintendo eShop and Virtual Console this week with a handful of games making their way to the digital storefronts, but now huge standouts...Unless you like shaking your groove thang, that is.
And honestly, who doesn't like cutting a little rug every now and again. But thanks to this week's launch of Just Dance 2014, “every now and again” can officially be “whenever you dang-well please.” The latest in the rhythm-based dance-a-thon series hits the Wii U this week, offering more than 40 brand new tracks both classic and contemporary guaranteed to crank the party's volume up to 11. This version of Just Dance offers the option to play with back-up dancers (assuming your living room is absolutely ginormous), as well as the ability to play and compete with anyone in the world online. Yes...Because I absolutely want some rando in Germany or Japan to see me twerking like Miley on acid. But, for those of you who find that mental image appealing, you've still got just a few more days to wait, as Just Dance 2014 won't be available until Oct. 8.
With the IndieCade Festival ongoing through Oct. 6, Nintendo is also offering an IndieCade app of some sort, allowing gamers to see which “creative and innovative games will appear in the Nintendo booth.” Depending on what this app actually does, it could actually be a pretty neat way to check out some of the upcoming indie titles we could all be playing in the next year. Guess we'll just have to download it and see.
There's also a Final Fight promo going on through the Nintendo eShop for Wii U. In short, if you decide to buy either Final Fight 2 or Final Fight 3 this week, you'll be able to take 50 percent off of any other fighting game of your choice. This offer's only good through Oct. 10, so you better act fast.
The Wii U finally gets its hands on a Little Infernodiscount this week. And yes, the Wii U has hands. From now until Oct. 9, Little Inferno will be marked down by 50 percent, giving players the chance to burn pretty much everything imaginable for a new low-low price.
Finally for the Wii U, TNT Racers: Nitro Machines Edition arrives on the eShop, giving player plenty of tricked out vehicles and crazy tracks to race down headed into the holiday season.
Over to the 3DS and the offerings continue to be a random assortment of small, independent, casual and awesome.
Rhythm Thief and the Emperor's Treasure finally brings the rhythm-game sequel to the states with PICROSS e3 offering even more puzzles for players to work through.
The 3DS will also be home to Family Bowling 3D this week, along with the similarly family-friendly Halloween: Trick or Treat 2 and Happy Circus.
There's also a demo for With and Hero for those who want to try before they buy, and, proving that the DSiWare shop isn't quite dead yet, Jewel Quest 5: The Sleepless Star will also be thrown into the mix.
