ESHOP Galaga Shoots onto the eShop This Week

A bit of an odd mix for this weeks eShop offerings but Wii U owners do get a chance to play the classic Galag thanks to the Virtual Console. Elsewhere 3DS gamers can discover the inner hunter in them with Deer Drive Legends.

Spin the Bottle: Bumpie's Party
(Knapnok Games) Wii U

Spin the Bottle: Bumpie's Party is a cute, addictively fun game that puts an innocent modern spin on a party classic as players sit in a circle around the Wii U GamePad, taking turns to spin the virtual bottle and pair up for a series of innovative physical micro-challenges! Can you and a friend press the A Button and B Button on the Wii Remote without using your hands? Or how about holding your Wii Remote behind your friend's back while you both jump together in sync? If it sounds easy, it isn't!

Romance of the three Kingdoms IV Wall of Fire
(KOEI) Wii U

 Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV is a gripping strategy simulation set in ancient China. Devise strategies against foreign rulers and take control of their cities to grow your own empire. Build armies and move your troops across the map, before plunging into the fray. To be a successful ruler you will need not only great warriors but also farmers and scientists; growing crops to keep your people well-fed, and developing new weapons to aid you in battle. But watch out for unexpected events like plagues, floods or swarms of locusts!

This is the US version of the game.



Classic arcade shoot 'em up Galaga was faithfully recreated for the home in this acclaimed NES version. Galaga became an instant classic with its innovative fighter combination system and varied enemy attack patterns. Control your fighter and shoot down the waves of invading aliens; and win bonuses in challenging stages by not missing a single enemy. If your fighter gets captured by an enemy, free it from the tractor beam and combine with it to form a dual fighter with twice the firepower!

This is the US version of the game.
