Here.  Here.  Here we go!  So they’re finally here.  Performing for you.  If you know the words, you can join in too!  Put your hands together, if you wanna clap!  As we take you through… this Nintendo Download!  Huh!  Such a classic!

Here we go.  This week we see the eShop release of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (available tomorrow Feb 21).  Also the Wii U Virtual Console expands by a single title, Ice Hockey.  The 3DS sees numerous titles this week with the release of Weapon Shop de Omasse which was featured in the last Nintendo Direct.  Also on the 3DS eShop is Kung Fu Rabbit, Quell Reflect and Sky Kid.  Finally to help push the upcoming release of Inazuma Eleven, full episodes of the anime manga are available in the eShop for free download.

Unfortunately there are no eShop sales this week.  But word on the street is that Best Buy will have eShop cards on sale (20% off) starting tomorrow.  We’ll keep you posted if this is true.
