This week’s eShop Update is packed with demos for highly anticipated, upcoming releases such as Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow ‒ Mirror of Fate.

SNES classic F-Zero is this week’s Wii U Virtual Console release, and for 30p it’s hard to resist the first entry in this futuristic racing series.

Meanwhile, NightSky for 3DS is a physics-based puzzler with picturesque visuals reminiscent of LIMBO.

Here’s this week’s Update in full:

Wii U Demos

  • NightSky – £8.99/€9.99

    • NightSky is an action-puzzle game that offers an ambient gameplay experience unlike any other on Nintendo 3DS, with cerebral challenges that fill uniquely designed picturesque worlds. Each of these worlds is broken into different areas, in which the player must manoeuvre a sphere by using realistic physics to advance. There are no enemies, no bosses, and no violence in NightSky. An intuitive experience suitable for both casual and mainstream gamers, NightSky also offers a formidable challenge for hardcore players through an unlockable Alternative mode. The original soundtrack by experimental jazz musician Chris Schlarb will further heighten the surreal 3D experience.

Taking full advantage of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System’s ‘Mode 7’ effect, F-ZERO redefined racing games with its smooth, fast graphics and thrilling gameplay. It also featured one of the most famous soundtracks in video games, and introduced players to the likes of Captain Falcon and Samurai Goroh.
