Other than a new (old) Castlevania game hitting the Wii U Virtual Console and the latest adventure starring Pac-Man and his hauntly homies, there's not a heck of a lot of new content coming out on Nintendo consoles this week. Prepare to be underwhelmed.

To be fair, the Wii U got Hyrule Warriors two weeks ago and Super Smash Bros. just brought the brawl to the 3DS seven days ago so, no matter what Nintendo console you're gaming on, there's at least one big name offering that's arrived within a fortnight. Not to mention the fact that we're right around the corner from some other big games, including Fantasy Life, Harvest Moon and the new Pokemon games for the portable, and the home console version of Super Smash Bros. on the Wii U.

In other words, we can't expect an embarrassment of riches on the eShop every week, so maybe it's not so bad that things are a bit on the quiet side for Oct. 10. So, how quiet I'm I talking, exactly? Well, let me break it down for you.

We begin our short journey on the Wii U. The only major game coming out for the home console this week is Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2, which doesn't actually arrive until Oct. 14. That game is more or less targeted at a very specific crowd and, if you're reading this, I have the sneaking suspicion that you aren't part of it. Maybe I'm wrong, though, and The Pac has a secret group of adoring core followers when it comes to his latest platforming adventure titles.

Otherwise, the only thing you really have to look forward to is the Wii U Virtual Console addition of Castlevania: Circle of the Moon. One of the three most beloved Castlevania games to arrive on the Game Boy Advance, Circle of the Moon ditches some of the series' familiar trappings for an ability list that comes from combining magical cards and a hero who is actually an apprentice to actual vampire hunters, doing his best to stay alive in a deadly situation.

And then there's the Wii U eShop offerings for the week, Turtle Tale and Art of Balance...Moving right along, then.

Over to the 3DS and Pac-Man will go on his second Ghostly Adventures next Tuesday as well. Poptropica: Forgotten Islands will also be added to the retail list, alongside Duck Dynasty. Duck Dynasty? Yes, Duck-freaking-Dynasty.

Otherwise, the eShop will play home to Riding Star 3D for you horse lovers in the crowd, and Ninja Battle Heroes for those of you who can't get enough ninjas in your life.
