Can someone check the price for Code of Princess in the NA eShop? It got a nice price drop in the Brazil eShop (from R$ 82 to R$ 60, which is a little under US$30).

I'm not sure if this is an actual wide sale or if ATLUS is experimenting with their prices in the Brazil eShop. I found another price drop: Hotel Transylvania dropped from R$50 to R$39.

The PR doesn't go up until tomorrow morning so we won't know everything until then.

To echo the above post, $29.99 in USA.

All we know is Megaman NES and Pacman NES, but with Nintendo you can't count on anything until it's actually released.

I'm okay with Megaman, but 2 VC releases would be quite pathetic.

Ah, then it indeed price dropped (from $39.99 to $29.99) all across the "NTSC" eShops.

I was expecting 0 VC games to be honest. I figured Nintendo would think the launch line up would satisfy us for a few weeks.

All those sales on the eShop. I wished they all extended for a few more weeks. Sucks being poor. ):

That said, I'm happy the sales aren't limited to one or two of them this time. There's a whole mess of them! Good job there, NOA. I did get ATV Wild Race yesterday with money I found on my piggy bank, so I'll make sure to note on CN that I got that game because of the sale going on.

Hopefully more sales are coming soon!

Really tempted by a lot of these sales. I still kind of want to hold out for Kirby's Adventure being a Club Nintendo offering :/ heavily considering Art of Balance Touch and Tokyo Crash Mobs. Interested in Fluidity too, but wish it was cheaper.

It's what happens when NoA and NoE give full price control to publishers and independent developers. Now they just need to communicate the sales better. Like there should be a way on the eShop (3DS or Wii U) to find out all the games currently on sale, and it should be one of the first things you see on the store front. Much like how Steam has a "Specials" category on the front page.

Seriously. Now that sales are a very common thing on 3DS, they should put a permanent sales category on the bottom row of the eShop.

NoA should just rehaul their eShop to be much more like the superior organized Europe eShop. NA eShop is a giant mess :(

Is Code of Princess any good? I've heard it's rather short, and has lots of... how to say it? Anime-like cleavage. Not that it bothers me, mind you, but I'm not a fan of that kind of art style.

I can't believe that Nintendo hasn't discovered how to do that yet. And there's no way (that I know of) to see all available demos either.

I really enjoyed it, though it has to be played in 2D mode. To be honest, I didn't get enough time with it to be really specific. All of my physical 3DS games got stolen last year, along with my 3DS. Nintendo replaced all of my download games, but (obviously) couldn't replace the cards.

The story might be considered short, I guess. It's a beat em up game. But there's a lot of missions and multiplayer stuff.
The main character's clothes are completely ridiculous but it's generally more cute than sexy. Go to Google image search and look for Solange, Zozo, and Ali. Those are the worst of it.

The stages are all short, bite-sized things where you fight either a wave of enemies or a boss. The main problem is that it isn't balanced for all characters. It's fine if you're playing the main character, perhaps a little slow, but if you're playing as Ali you'll find enemies can counterattack you during your combos. And she's the fast character.

That's terrible, man. I'm glad that Nintendo replaced your downloadable games, but it totally sucks for the console, physical games and the situation you went through.

Do you mean that 3D looks bad on it? I may grab it someday, if it is as fun as you say.

So you mean that there are several characters which are borderline unplayable and/or not worth using?

Hearing that it has extra missions and multiplayer sounds nice. I don't mind if it's short as long as it's good enough during the time it lasts, and replayability is always a plus.

Well, most of the enemies and bosses you fight are playable in the bonus quests. The enemies are fluff and don't have a lot of attacks. A lot of them are really similar to each other too. The bosses and additional characters are fine.
In the story mode, you have four characters. One of them is probably the best character in the game, one of them is terrible.

I've had it for the past week. It's a 99 cent phone game ported to the Wii U and plays as such. I wouldn't waste my money.

I was just wondering yesterday if we'd ever get the freemium DL version in NA. Now when I get a Wii U I can play it for free and grab the paid DLC if I really want to, the game otherwise should have no play limits ala demos, excite!

Also excited to download the update for Balloon Fight on eShop so now all my NES Ambassador games are updated. :)

The 3DS had enough NES games when it had 0 NES games. Releasing fewer Game Boy games in favour of NES games that I could play on my Wii if I was interested was always something I was afraid was going to happen, and I was right. :(

I wonder what happened there. Were GB sales that bad that no-one wanted to make the effort to get their games on the 3DS VC? I mean, the library of really great games isn't that large, but there are a lot more still to go before the GB/GBC libraries are exhausted.

EDIT:

Checking, I see that Europe has 50 games between the GB and GBC, but GB releases came to a halt back in October 2012, and we've gone over a month without a new GBC release. It seems like the NES releases became far more regular when the GB releases halted and they're continuing pretty strongly now.
