Nintendo Download Highlights For October 1st

The eShop welcomes October with a stalwart line-up of throwback games, including a retro-alike platformer, a retro-alike RPG, and a plain old retro brawler among its options. Freedom Planet may have started out as a Sonic the Hedgehog-style fan game, but it’s evolved into a game all its own. Players who downloaded the E3 demo will get Freedom Planet at a small discount. The sole 3DS release is Chronus Arc from Kemco, a throwback to a time when RPGs were simpler while augmented with modern conveniences. And the Wii U gets the Virtual Console re-release of River City Ransom, a knuckle-hard street brawler. And be sure to check out the weekly discounts, including Citizens of Earth and perennial favorite Shin Megami Tensei IV.
