E Shop

It's little secret to Nintendo gamers that the eShop platforms on Wii U and 3DS — particularly the former — have picked up a lot of steam in 2014. Both Nintendo of America and Europe (in their respective Direct broadcasts) took the opportunity to highlight just that, showing off games out now and on the way. In Europe there's the welcome arrival of Shovel Knight right now on both eShop stores, too.

To kick off, Nintendo of America has released a substantial list of updated release windows for download games, mostly on Wii U. You can see this below.

That's certainly an impressive list of titles, with the majority due over the next 3-4 months. In addition, Nintendo of America has released a host of developer interviews from Indiecade over on its official YouTube channel; if you're a little short on time, however, the European sizzle reel below may get you in the mood.
