This week’s Nintendo eShop Update features a modest selection of new content including Level-5’s tribute to the table-top RPG – Crimson Shroud. The game is created by Yasumi Matsuno who previously directed such classics as Final Fantasy Tactics and Vagrant Story.
Also new this week is the long-awaited demo for Rayman Legends that was originally scheduled to be released last week. The demo lets you play through three fantastic levels from the game and serves up enough platforming thrills to get players excited for Rayman Legends’ release on February 28th.
Here’s this week’s Update in full:
