Nintendo Download Highlights for January 8th

As is typical with early in the year, the eShop offerings are quiet and slim. This week, we see a well-liked indie game, the developer of The Letter strikes back, Activision continues to bring their backlog to digital, and some new sales go on offer. Chariot finally arrives on Wii U after making it on PlayStation and Xbox, and has garnered praise for its action-platforming co-op. As mentioned, the dev behind the infamous The Letter debuts a new game called Maze. Mega Man Battle Network 2 and Adventures of Lolo are the new Virtual Console games this week. The most notable sales this week include Cubeman 2 on Wii U and Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse on 3DS. Keep an open mind and pick your downloads carefully.
