The Nintendo eShop has been updated yet again, and surprise - there's not a lot here. What is there, however, is pretty good as a few major first party and third party releases are finally hitting the Wii U and 3DS.

Nintendo announced today that Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will be out on the eShop tomorrow alongside the game's retail release. We've already said all that can be said about it. If you need a refresher, however, just know that it's classic Donkey Kong Country gameplay complete with music from series composer David Wise. The game will unlock at midnight tonight for those who prefer to buy the game digitally through the eShop.

For Nintendo 3DS, the final game in Level 5's Guild 01 series has finally been localized - Weapon Shop De Omasse. The game puts players in the role of a blacksmith's apprentice as they run a shop that sells weapons to the adventurers you find in JRPGs. The game's script was written by comedian Yoshiyuki Hirai so fans of Japanese comedy will definitely want to check it out.

In other Level 5 news, Nintendo has posted the first three episodes of the Inazuma Eleven anime series to coincide with the game's release on the eShop last week. If you're new to Inazuma Eleven, think of it as a Japanese version of The Big Green.

Here are the other games hitting the eShop this week:

  • Ice Hockey (Nintendo eShop on Wii U Virtual Console)
  • Kung Fu Rabbit (Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS)
  • Quell Reflect (Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS)
  • Sky Kid (Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console)
