Nintendo Download: Blaster Master Zero

Also, Bomberman 64 on Wii U

The time has come to shift these updates in a different direction. On any given week you might see a lack of Wii U or 3DS releases now that the Switch has come into play. Nintendo even expects it to outsell the Wii U in just one year! Sad days are ahead for those of you who are holding off on upgrading.

On the Switch, folks are getting a Snipperclips demo, alongside of Blaster Master Zero (which launched in Japan with the system), Nam-1975, King of Fighters ’98, Waku Waku 7, Metal Slug 3, World Heroes Perfect, Shock Troopers, and Voez. In other words, the US Switch eShop just caught up with Europe, and most (but not all) of Japan’s offerings. On the 3DS you’ll find Frontier Days, Pink Dot Blue Dot, Blaster Master Zero, Mini Sports Collection, Candy Hoarder, and Blue-Collar Astronaut (that last title is intriguing to me).

The Wii U is just getting Bomberman 64 on the virtual console.

If you missed last week’s edition, here it is. As for what I’m getting, Blaster Master Zero is pretty great, and I think I’ll pick up at least one of those SNK releases, likely Metal Slug 3. For those who are interested, sales are going on for all platforms.
