Nintendo Download: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

Also, Mario Party 2

It’s a really brief Christmas drop for the eShop — I guess most developers figure people already spent all their holiday cash on gifts. But then again, post-Christmas eShop gift cards are a thing! Either way, on Wii U we have Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, as well as Raidantflux: Hyperfractal, and Mario Party 2 on the Virtual Console. That’s it! At least there’s an all-new game on that list, that was Kickstarted and actually delivered, no less.

On 3DS we have Geki Yaba Runner Deluxe, Gourmet Dream, Hit Ninja, Ice Station Z, and Mini Golf Resort.

If you missed last week’s edition, here it is. As for what I’m getting, I made my way through Shantae, and although I still like Risky’s Revenge the most, it’s a great little platformer. For those who are interested, sales are going on for both the Wii U and 3DS.
