It’s a rather light week for releases when compared to the past few months. The big hitter will of course be Twilight Princess HD, which releases tonight at midnight. If you’re purchasing it digitally you can already pay for it and have the game pre-load so you don’t need to wait for it to download the whole file at midnight. Instead a small update will download at midnight, opening the game up for play.
A couple of notable sales currently ongoing in the 3DS eShop from Atlus include Persona Q for $19.99 (was: $49.99) and Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers for $9.99 (was: $9.99). Remember that Ubisoft is also having a major sale on many of its digital games. For a list of those, check here.
