Bravely Default Is The Highlight Of This Week’s Nintendo DownloadBy: Zach Walton - February 6, 2014
Bravely Default is out on Friday and JRPG fans all over the nation are chomping at the bit to get it. If you don’t mind forfeiting the physical release, fans can grab it tonight at midnight as part of this week’s Nintendo Download.
That’s right – the highlight of this week’s Nintendo Download is Bravely Default. The latest JRPG from Square Enix takes players back to the past with a game inspired by the likes of Final Fantasy V with a deep job system and revamped combat that makes players take advantage of the brave and default mechanics.
If you prefer senseless violence over magic crystals, you might be more interested in Retro City Rampage DX. The 3DS version of last year’s indie game puts players into an 8-bit version of Grand Theft Auto full of references to classic video games from the 80s and 90s.
For the kids, the Wii U and 3DS eShop will also be updated with The LEGO Movie Video Game. The game follows the events of the upcoming film in a game that plays very much like the previous LEGO video games that were based on other franchises.
As for the virtual console, the only release this week is on the Wii U – Ninja Gaiden. The original NES game features 10 stages of hardcore platforming and combat that remains unbeatable for many players to this day.
Here are the other titles hitting the Wii U and 3DS eShop in the coming week:
