After a few weeks of famine, the eShop now has a feast-filled week of games. Things kick off with the long-awaited western release of Dragon Quest VIII on the 3DS, a port of the PS2 classic with some added content. Star Fox 64 gives Wii U owners more Star Fox goodness by way of the Virtual Console.
