Don’t take as confirmed yet, but from a couple of lines of the Nintendo UK official website (and elsewhere), it seems pretty likely that Mario Golf World Tour is going to be getting a demo on the eShop. The proof? A line on the official site talking about the age required to get demos, and a listing for a demo elsewhere on the site. Head inside to see the proof for yourself!
And guess what? It takes up 11GB of space if downloaded digitally from the eShop. Which means that anyone stupid/unlucky enough to got a basic set will need to get a whole hard drive just to fit the game on (while everyone else will likely lose about half their storage space anyway).
Which is quite appropriate considering the Sochi Winter Olympic Games are going on right now. The deal is apparently active in both the US and Europe too, and gives you a nice 30% discount on the game’s price. But my opinion? Don’t bother. The game’s apparently not that good to begin with, and the only real ‘decent’ aspect is supposedly the soundtrack (which can be listened to for free on Youtube or numerous other websites). Just watch the actual games on TV instead, you’ll get all the enjoyment and none of the waggle controls.
As a Nintendo fan goes, I have to say I’m probably not quite as dedicated as some others out there. Indeed, with my constantly changing interests, general lack of money and tendency to buy very few games a year in general, there are actually quite a few top Nintendo classics I completely missed out on back in the days of their release. So here’s my list, a list of Nintendo classics that I only got to enjoy through the eShop and later rereleases
For four days only. So if you want to get the game but missed out a year or so ago, you’ve now got the perfect opportunity to download it. Well that’s what they say anyone. I assume this is another US/Canada thing, I can’t seem to find it on the European version of the eShop.
Since while they may not be ‘classics’ like those on the Virtual Console, I’m pretty sure a lot of people would appreciate some sort of way to buy them now. Especially the more obscure ones they may have missed out on a couple of years ago or so. So why should they be added? Find out in the full article below!
When it comes to digital distribution and video games, the general consensus seems to be that physical copies of games are on the way out. But has Nintendo’s very own StreetPass system kind of hurt the digital game sales ‘model’? Has their new hardware feature actually made it so digital distribution isn’t really too much more convenient than buying games in actual box form? I think so, and here’s why…
Seems so, because guess what type of job they were advertising on Christmas Eve this year? Yep, a position for an IT Architect, presumably the type of individual who could stop the eShop exploding and Pokemon Bank’s launch from failing.
Want to get The Legend of Zelda A Link Between Worlds right now and just happen to live in Europe? Don’t mind having a digital copy of the game even with Nintendo’s shoddy current account system? Well it seems you’re now in luck, since Twitter and Youtube user NiNTENDOMiNATiON has posted on Twitter that the game is now available to buy on the 3DS eShop! Keep reading for his full Tweet including picture proof! Btw…..u all know that #Zelda A Link Between Worlds is Now available in Europa ^o^ pic.twitter.com/CnNdYLOP6h — NiNTENDOMiNATiON (@TiLMEN) November 22, 2013 So yeah, anyone here planning to buy it from the eShop? Or are you waiting until later to buy a boxed version of the […]
Remember that patch I mentioned was coming to Japan? Well now it’s available to download in all regions and can be gotten from the 3DS eShop. Indeed, if you have the game in any form and even try to access the shop, the system will even direct you straight to it!
