European Nintendo eShop Update for May 29th: Mario Kart 8, The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap

Written by: / / No Comments


This week’s Nintendo eShop line-up doesn’t feature much noteworthy 3DS content apart from a number of discounts but Wii U owners are in for a treat with tomorrow’s release of Mario Kart 8. The game is one of the most critically acclaimed titles of 2014 so far, currently averaging 88.43% on GameRankings and 89 on Metacritic. You can read our own review of this fine-looking kart racer over here.

Another highlight this week is the arrival of the Game Boy Advance classic The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap on the Wii U’s Virtual Console. Capcom did an amazing job handling development duties on this project and for me the game remains one of the best and most memorable Legend of Zelda titles of all time.
