Well it’s been awhile since I posted one of these. Why? Well to be honest the releases haven’t been all that great post Christmas in my opinion. Sure there’s been a 64 Virtual Console game here and there, but not PSVG post worthy. Well that changes this week especially for 3DS owners. Dragon Quest 8 by all reviews is a great RPG on your 3DS & Yoshi’s Wooly World is finally able to be enjoyed by more than those that still play their Wii U’s.

Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS

  • Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King – Uncover the story of the Cursed King as you save the world from a twisted magician in this genre-defining role-playing game. Across the vast world you’ll wage turn-based battles against more than 250 monsters designed by artist Akira Toriyama. This updated classic also includes new dungeons, bosses, items, quests, scenes and a new possible ending!
  • Punch ClubPunch Club is a boxing tycoon management game with multiple branching storylines. Your goal is clear, but how you get there depends on whether you want to legitimately climb the rankings, or take the more ridiculous, shady route.
  • Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World – Demo Version – Before the Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World game launches for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on Feb. 3, try it out with this free demo. Download it now to experience the beautifully handcrafted world and clever side-scrolling action.
  • Virtual Console on Wii U
    • Star Fox 64 – The Lylat system has been invaded! In this Nintendo 64 classic, take control of the Arwing and skim over the surface of an alien sea, weave through the concrete canyons of a futuristic metropolis or dodge planetoids the size of mountains. Complete 15 missions on your way to the final showdown on planet Venom. It’s up to Fox McCloud and his team of space mercenaries to save the galaxy from the clutches of the evil Andross.
