Nintendo eShop Update: 12th November 2015 (Europe)

Rode the Sky Soldier glides in to land in this week’s Nintendo eShop, with Yuji Naka’s creation seeing release across Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

Away from that, it is a quieter week for Nintendo’s digital store. Word Party rounds out the new releases on Wii U, while Nintendo 3DS welcomes several new HOME Menu themes, Family Bowling 3D, Hello Kitty & Friends: Rockin’ World Tour and the unimaginatively titled Horse Life 4.
