Nintendo eShop Update: 31st March 2016 (Europe)

metroid-other-m-image

The divisive Metroid: Other M arrives on the Wii U Virtual Console service this week, which sees the console welcome numerous additions to the Nintendo eShop.

Chompy Chomp Chomp Party, FreezeME, Tachyon Project and The Beggar’s Ride will all compete for your attention, while LEGO Marvel Avengers receives new add-on content.

However, it remains far quieter on Nintendo 3DS, with Kemco’s Justice Chronicles being the only new arrival. But, to tide you over until Fire Emblem Fates launches, there are wider discounts
