While it is not something I have really covered in the past before, Nintendo of Australia have recently started sharing their weekly Nintendo eShop Releases for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U platforms. For the sake of convenience (If you want to save yourself the few minutes of turning on your console and logging into the store to check it out yourself), I have included the listings below.
Resident Evil Revelations Demo
Capcom | Wii U | 15th May | Free
The critically acclaimed survival horror title Resident Evil Revelations returns redefined for console complete with high quality HD visuals, enhanced lighting effects and an immersive sound experience. This latest version of Resident Evil Revelations will also deliver additional content including a terrifying new enemy, extra difficulty mode and improvements to RAID Mode such as new weapons, skill sets, and playable characters including Hunk and Rachael!
The Starship Damrey
Level-5 | Nintendo 3DS | 17th May | $10.40

You awaken to discover that you are trapped in a Cold Sleep capsule aboard the titular Starship Damrey with no memory of who you are or how you got there. With no tutorials, explanations, or hints provided, the game was created with the intent that self-discovery and experimentation be an integral part of the experience. An inconceivable truth awaits those willing to discover it. Do you dare to hope? Or will despair claim the final shreds of your mind? Discover the mystery of the Starship Damrey to find out for yourself…
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity
Nintendo | Nintendo 3DS | 18th May | $69.95
Get ready for an infinite adventure! Become one of five popular Pokémon and then step into a world where amazing experiences are always nearby. Explore more than 20 exciting dungeons, each one filled with all kinds of Pokémon, treasures and surprises! Not only does each dungeon have its own unique characteristics – the Pokémon found within it, the type of terrain and the number of floors to explore – but the layout changes every time you enter, meaning an infinite number of dungeons await you!
Mega Man 5
Capcom | Nintendo 3DS (Virtual Console | NES) | 17th May | $6.50
Proto Man – once the trusted brother of Mega Man – has mysteriously gone berserk, kidnapping Dr. Light and forcing Mega Man to go on the offensive. Assisted by his new sidekick Beat, a robotic bird, and his faithful robo-dog Rush, Mega Man must battle through eight thrilling levels and defeat the robot masters lurking within. Defy gravity in Gravity Man’s stage, chip away the defences in Stone Man’s stage and catch some surf in Wave Man’s stage, before the final showdown!
Super Mario Bros. 2
Nintendo | Wii U (Virtual Console | NES) | 17th May | $6.50
Join Mario and company on a journey to save the world of Subcon from the foul frog tyrant, Wart. Super Mario Bros. 2 offered freedom to explore levels not only horizontally but also vertically; while collecting power-ups, uprooting veggies to throw at enemies and seeking out hidden ‘Sub-space’ rooms. It was the first Mario title to let players control other characters like Princess Toadstool (Peach) and Toad; each with their own skills. It also featured the first appearance of many Mario series regulars, including Shy Guy and Birdo. This is the US version of the game.
Capcom | Wii U (Virtual Console | SNES) | 17th May | $10.40
The third game in the legendary Ghosts’n Goblins series, Super Ghouls’n Ghosts follows brave Sir Arthur’s quest through demon-infested lands to rescue the kidnapped princess. Battle through deadly stages and beat each level’s boss to progress. But watch out: if Arthur is injured his armour breaks, leaving him only in his boxer shorts! Originally developed exclusively for Super NES, this supremely challenging platformer won critical acclaim and became an instant bestseller. This is the US version of the game.
