Nintendo eShop Update: 17th March 2016 (Europe)

This week’s Nintendo eShop update for Europe has pummelled in, seeing Pokkén Tournament brawl it out on Wii U.

Renegade Kid’s Mutant Mudds Super Challenge and Digerati’s Paranautical Activity round out the new releases on the console, while the New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console service adds F-ZERO and Super Mario Kart.

Aside from a burst of HOME Menu themes, Nintendo 3DS is slightly quieter. Mutant Mudds Super Challenge also becomes available, which sees a cross-platform promotion with Wii U, while CIRCLE Entertainment release a Petit Novel series – Harvest December demo and The Legend of Dark Witch – Chronicle 2D ACT. Two games with distinctly lengthy names.
