A slightly quieter week for the Nintendo eShop welcomes unwieldy tentacles, number crunching, and the chance to search for lost puppies across Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

Wii U’s Virtual Console service welcomes Harvest Moon: More Friends of Mineral Town, which is accompanied by Barbie and Her Sisters Puppy Rescue, Human Resource Machine, Octodad: Dadliest Catch and PictoParty.

While Nintendo 3DS sees an especially quiet week, with only a new HOME Menu theme, The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes demo becoming freely available, and Barbie and Her Sisters Puppy Rescue’s handheld version.
