Nintendo Download list: 26th September 2013 (Europe)
It’s a lengthy Nintendo Download list this week for Europe, with a cocktail of football titles leading the selection on nintendo 3DS this week.
LEVEL-5 deliver the latest entries within their Inazuma Eleven series, whilst EA make a rather lacklustre offering through FIFA 14 Legacy Edition which apparently includes “no updates to gameplay or game modes” compared to last year’s outing. Hmm.
