NintendoWare Weekly: Liberation Maiden, NightSky

NintendoWare Weekly Liberation Maiden, NightSky

Level-5's Guild01 collection kicks off today with Liberation Maiden, a shooter designed by Suda 51, in which you are the president of Japan in a flying mech. For a much more ... muted experience, Nicalis brings NightSky, a beautiful little puzzle platformer designed by Knytt creator Nifflasto, to the eShop today.

There's a lot of stuff on eShop today, including more downloadable Coin Rush levels for New Super Mario Bros. 2. Now that you're done watching Nintendo Directs for the day, why not head past the break and see what you can buy?
