This week on the Nintendo eShop, it's a battle of brains versus brawn, wits versus fists, puzzles versus knuckles. Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy debuts on 3DS, putting a bittersweet cap (or top hat, perhaps) on the second Layton trilogy. Our review notes that the series as we know it may have run its course, calling Azran Legacy "as good a way to sign off as could be expected, and the right time to maybe wish the professor a fond farewell."

If you prefer less thinking in your video games (and fewer top hats, for that matter), you can pick up Renegade, an NES beat-em-up from the same series as Super Dodge Ball and River City Ransom. Just look at the pompadours, they're a dead giveaway.

Finally, through March 3, you can snag Knytt Underground on Wii U for $7, half the usual price.
