Perhaps the biggest story this week is not what’s up for download, but what’s missing: Wii U digital content. For the first time we can remember, not a single Wii U game is releasing on the eShop this week. No Virtual Console and no small Indie titles. Perhaps this marks the last breath of the Wii U? We’re kind of surprised it took this long!
All of this week’s releases are below:
This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:
- Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch
- Minecraft: Story Mode – The Complete Adventure – Embark on a perilous quest across the Overworld, to the End and beyond.
