Okay, I kind of suck at coming up with subtitles. This week's masterpiece is referencing Tomodachi Life on the 3DS which launches tomorrow. Basically imagine if you, your friends, and your family were all Miis and living in an apartment on an island. Kind of sounds like the start to a new sitcom, doesn't it? This is what I'm currently experiencing as I'm preparing my review for Tomodachi Life and so far I'm enjoying it. I just hope it doesn't get too monotonous too quickly.
In other 3DS eShop news we have The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap hitting the Virtual Console as well as 1001 Spikes launching today in the eShop with How to Train Your Dragon 2 hitting it on June 10th (1001 Spikes and How to Train Your Dragon 2 will also be available on the Wii U). The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap may not be my favorite portable Zelda game (that remains to be Link's Awakening at the moment), but is still an enjoyable game. As for 1001 Spikes I'll hopefully be giving that a download as I've always been into retro-styled games.
Over on the Wii U we have Color Zen (also on the 3DS), Chubbins, and I've Got to Run!. There was also a recent system update that now adds a Quick Start menu that will let you select from your ten most recently used games and apps right when the Wii U starts up. It's an interesting feature, though I'm still waiting for the ability to create folders like with the 3DS. My main screen is starting to get filled up with VC games rather quickly.
