ESHOP Nintendo' eShop Summer Plans

There's no question that the eShop have made great improvements since it was first launched and I'm sure we all have a handful of titles which are only available from the online store. This summer, the Nintendo eShop library is set to expand with two new games available for download exclusively on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS and 2DS systems.

Launching on 19th June, Pullblox World brings the beloved puzzle-platformer series to Wii U, accompanied by special price promotions for all three games in the series. Hot on the heels of this, Chibi-Robo! Let's Go, Photo! is unleashed on 3rd July on Nintendo 3DS and 2DS, and is set to change the way you look at the world around you! The game marks the return of the fan-favourite little robot in a photo scavenger hunt that uses the system cameras to bring real-world objects into Chibi-Robo's world.

Revel in the colourful Pullblox World, and enjoy the first Wii U outing for the puzzle-platformer series that began with Pullblox and Fallblox on Nintendo 3DS and 2DS. Take control of Mallo, the strong little guy with acrobatic powers, and help him rescue children trapped in the Pullblox structures. Using his skills, you can solve three-dimensional, block-based puzzles by pushing or pulling blocks to climb to the top of the structures. As the game progresses, the puzzles get larger and more complex, with some massive, screen-filling creations resembling familiar objects, animals and even classic Nintendo characters. Endless replay value is ensured by the return of Pullblox Studio, providing an easy-to-use interface for players to create and share their own puzzle creations.

In addition to crisp and colourful HD graphics, Pullblox World brings 250 new puzzles (some with brand new gameplay mechanics) and makes it easier than ever to share your own creations or discover new puzzles created by other players. The all-new Pullblox World Fair is integrated with Miiverse, so players from all around the world can play and rate puzzles by other creators - including more puzzles made by the Pullblox World developers!

To celebrate the upcoming launch of Pullblox World, Nintendo is holding special price promotions on Nintendo eShop. Pullblox and Fallblox for Nintendo 3DS and 2DS will be available at a discount for a limited time, while owners of either title can get a 30% discount on Pullblox World if they get it between 19th June (15:00 local time) and 31st July using the same Nintendo Network ID*

If you still have a helping hand to spare, you're welcome to assist Chibi-Robo, the 10 cm-high tiny robot, tasked with opening a museum in Chibi-Robo! Let's Go, Photo! on Nintendo 3DS and 2DS. The Curator dreams of immortalising real-world objects as NostalJunk to put on display, and it's your job as Chibi-Robo to help him fill his exhibition rooms using your very own photographs! Through the Nintendo 3DS and 2DS cameras, accurately line up in-game silhouettes with real-life objects, take a snap and watch them be transformed into the coveted NostalJunk.

The game also introduces you to a cast of colourful and hilarious characters who need Chibi-Robo's help - from a sushi-slinging squid to an eccentric pair of chefs! Do your part with cleaning and vacuuming the world, and helping to solve their problems with missions such as retrieving ingredients from a fridge that's gigantic from the perspective of Chibi-Robo! Through these jobs earn Happy Points to obtain new silhouette film for your camera. The more happiness you spread, the faster you can realise The Curator's dream of having as many NostalJunk aficionados admire his exhibits as possible.

What's more, European players of Chibi-Robo! Let's Go, Photo! can enter NostalJunk Contests to win exclusive costumes for their Chibi-Robo to flaunt in-game. Starting soon after launch, SpotPass contests will take place for a limited time, and players can submit their prized photos as NostalJunk to Nintendo. A curated selection of nominees will become available in the Contest judging room, where players can vote on their favourite, and one lucky winner receives two exclusive Chibi-Robo costumes, while up to nine runner-ups receive a single costume prize. Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter for more details on these NostalJunk Contests, and once each contest is concluded, ten players will have their winning entries displayed on the Chibi-Robo! Let's Go, Photo! gamepage.

From the puzzle-platforming challenges of Pullblox World on Wii U (19th June) to the picture-taking adventures in Chibi-Robo! Let's Go, Photo! (3rd July), owners of Nintendo systems will have even more unique gameplay experiences to look forward to this summer, only on Nintendo eShop.
