Nintendo Thursday: the eShop Gets Overrun with Goodness, 3DS Releases Especially Enticing

Thursdays are Nintendo’s day; it’s when they update their eShop, and it’s when almost all eShop titles are released. Today is no different, except for the fact that the lineup is stacked. The 3DS has a specifically impressive lineup with BlazBlue: Clone Phantasma bringing us its chibi cuteness, Way Forward giving us their first game in XtremeSports via the Virtual Console, and the intriguing RTS Demon King Box rounding things out. But there’s more than just that, so see for yourself just what the Big N’s offerings are this week.
