eShop brings Hulu Plus to Nintendo 3DS, ‘Urban Champion’ to Wii U
Nintendo’s eShops have been updated, and this week’s winner is definitely the 3DS.
The Wii U’s eShop has some good offerings, to be sure. Wayforward released its digital-only title, Mighty Switch Force 2. The sequel to the hit download throws Planet Land into a fiery inferno, and players must take up their Infinity Dousing Apparatus (a never-ending fire hose) and right what’s been wronged in this puzzle platformer.
Two games also hit the Wii U’s Virtual Console. One is a fighter that many people (including myself) had not heard of: Urban Champion. Urban Champion was the NES’s first fighting game, and… well, it shows.
But HEY! Clu Clu Land is on the Virtual Console too, and THAT was fun!
The 3DS eShop, however, knocks it out of the park this week, as it introduces Hulu Plus functionality. Now, those with Hulu Plus accounts can access hit TV shows and movies from their 3DS on the same account they use for their other game consoles, laptop, streaming box, or mobile device. Users can take a break from Pokemon X/Y and enjoy an episode or two from hit series such as The Simpsons, Modern Family, Community, Family Guy, or Dragon Ball Z, to name a few. Hulu Plus is available at www.hulu.com for $7.99 per month, but the app on the 3DS is free to download.
Amongst other offerings on the 3DS eShop: Snow Moto Racing 3D, Brunch Panic, and on October 22, Hometown Story.
