Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy

The time has come, North America, for details of the goodies that'll be available to download on the eShop stores this week. The latest Professor Layton title makes it's arrival on the 3DS, along with some other VC classics and downloadable delights. Without further ado, let's get to it.

Missed the European Nintendo Download update on Monday? Worry not, just click here for the full rundown.

Wii U eShop

My Farm (BiP Media, $TBC) — BiP Media's My Farm series has certainly had a consistent run on the DSi and 3DS online stores, and now steps into the home console market with Wii U. Find out more in our My Farm review.

Wii U Virtual Console

Renegade (Arc System Works, $4.99) — We may think games are violent today, but they weren't exactly hugs with teddy bears in the NES era. The beat'em up genre was rather popular, though this is perhaps one of the weakest of the best known button mashers of the 8-bit era. We'll brawl with it once again, but in the meantime you can see what we thought in our Wii Virtual Console Renegade review.

Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts

Knytt Underground (Ripstone, $6.50 until 3rd March, normally $12.99)

3DS retail

Professor Layton & the Azran Legacy (Nintendo, $TBC) — Available from 28th Feb, this is said to be the last adventure in the series starring the tea-drinking Professor of Archaeology, and if it is a finale then it's a fitting one. Incorporating the simplicity of the DS titles with some 3DS flourishes, this earned 9/10 in our Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy review.

3DS eShop

Tappingo (Goodbye Galaxy Games, $2.99) — This is the studio's 3DS eShop début after its role providing some of the best experiences on DSiWare. A puzzler that has a hint of Picross in its approach, it nevertheless promises a neat twist in the formula and over 100 levels and a time attack mode. We'll figure it out for our review.

3DS Virtual Console

Renegade (Arc System Works, $4.99) — Like on the Wii U Virtual Console, but you can take it with you on the road.
