Digital Download Thursdays

This week’s highlights for Nintendo’s eShop are Yo-Kai Watch and Toki Tori 3D for the 3DS and Electronic Super Joy and Rodea: The Sky Soldier (Nov. 10) for the Wii U. Although I have yet to try it, Electronic Super Joy looks especially fun with its abstract art style and catchy music. For a full list of games and sales, read on:
