This week’s Nintendo eShop update is a busy one, seeing Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows, Skylanders SuperChargers: Portal Owner’s Pack and Year Walk lead the way on Wii U. Wii U’s Virtual Console service adds Natsume’s Car Battler Joe, while other releases see Defense Dome, Rock ‘N Racing Off Road DX and Zombie Defense become available on Wii U.

Nintendo 3DS is similarly treated to a helping of new content, with the free Plague of Shadows expansion having also been added for Shovel Knight owners. Whereas Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson launches, and ATLUS release a demo for The Legend of Legacy. Elsewhere there’s a smattering of discounts, and a price reduction for the lengthily named Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker.
