The Nintendo Download brings more Castlevania to the eShop

Ready for another dose of classic Castlevania? Harmony of Dissonance arrives on the Shop along with some smaller releases and sale titles this week.


Not a ton of big names to toss about this week as to arrivals on the eShop for either the Wii U or the 3DS. What we do have though is a classic portable Castlevania in Harmony of Dissonance. One of the only latter Castlevania titles (front he original series, not Lords of Shadow) that actually put you in the shoes of a Belmont once again if I recall correctly.

Also worth mentioning is 50% off the price of Trine 2, which is a very solid title, and a sale on various Atlus properties on the 3DS- also worth a look if you’re a fan of the publisher and you’ve skipped over a few of their latest releases.

In addition to video games available at retail stores, Nintendo also offers a variety of content that people can download directly to their systems. Nintendo adds new games weekly to the Nintendo eShop on the Wii U console and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, the Nintendo DSi Shop for the Nintendo DSi system and the Wii Shop Channel for the Wii console.

The Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service that features a wide variety of content, including new and classic games, applications and demos. Users can add money to their account balances by using a credit card or purchasing a Nintendo eShop Card at a retail store and entering the code from the card. All funds from one card must be loaded in the Nintendo eShop on either Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can be used in either Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single Nintendo Network account.
