New Nintendo eShop releases: Spelunker, Urban Trial Freestyle, Game Gear games


This week's slate of eShop games is a bit of a mixed bag. The Wii U gets only one new Virtual Console entry in the form of SNES gambling game, Vegas Stakes. On the 3DS, however, it's a veritable cornucopia of VC games with Spelunker and three new Game Gear games, including Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Crystal Warriors and Sonic Labyrinth.

Outside of Virtual Console, the 3DS also picks up Urban Trial Freestyle, which isn't to be confused with the Trials series (although the developer is probably hoping you will). We also have Kokuga, a shooter from G.Rev and the creator of Ikaruga, and Gabrielle's Ghostly Groove Mini, presumably a snack-sized version of the 2011 WiiWare game. Also, as promised, the Project X Zone "Ghost" demo will launch on July 2.

Finally, Club Nintendo is running a promotion on Wii U Virtual Console games. Purchase any Wii U VC game between June 28, 12:00am PT, and June 30, 11:59pm PT, and you'll get 20 bonus coins.
