Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge and Double Dragon II lead a week in releases that sees a bunch of sales hit the eShop.

It’s a slow season, even for downloadable releases. Mega Month is still going on of course, as you can see with the addition of Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge to the Virtual Console on the Wii U. I’m actually kind of excited about Double Dragon II too, as I happen to love that series and part 2 was one of my personal faves.

Other than those two classics, there’s really nothing else of not in the ‘new’ department on the eShop this week. If you’re looking for late Summer sales though, you might be in luck as you can pick up Scram Kitty, Etrian Odyssey and more for cheap.
