Nintendo eShop Selects

The Wii U eShop has really punched above its weight during its short lifespan with many excellent Nindie games (and a few terrible ones) being made available for lucky gamers to download.

Some of our favourites are Shin'en Multimedia's FAST Racing NEO and Image & Form's SteamWorld Dig and SteamWorld Heist. We've always felt these games had such amazing production values that they could have been disc-based retail games from day one, and obviously someone at Nintendo has had the same idea as they will now be published as the inaugural 'Nintendo eShop Selects' titles for Wii U.

The retail version of FAST Racing NEO offers even more tracks to enjoy with the Nintendo eShop Selects version of this release, as the eight downloadable courses contained in the upcoming NEO Future Pack will be included on the disc.

SteamWorld Dig and SteamWorld Heist will be available in the same retail package which is lovingly entitled the SteamWorld Collection. SteamWorld Collection will also include the SteamWorld Heist add-on content The Outsider, providing a new ally with a past shrouded in mystery, as well as new missions with brand new weapons, gear, and snazzy new headwear.

Watch out for both of these games coming to retail on 30th September in Europe (US release is TBC). Do you plan to pick these disc based collectables up? Which other eShop games would you like to see arrive on retail in the future? Let us know by posting a comment.
