It’s Thursday once again, and it’s time for Nintendo to update the eShop on both the Wii U and 3DS, bringing new games, sales, and more.
First up is the Nintendo Wii U eShop. The most notable title coming this week (available tomorrow on Dec. 4) is the long-awaited Xenoblade Chronicles X. For those not in the know about the massive JRPG, check out its description via Nintendo:”Earth has fallen. Yet mankind endures, taking to the stars and crash-landing on an alien world in a desperate attempt to escape. Defend the survivors using high-tech weaponry on a mission to rebuild humanity. Suit up in heavily armed mechs to tame the wilds of planet Mira and beat back the hostile forces threatening to obliterate the human race.”
