Mighty Bomb Jack and Life Force headline this week's eShop update

Every Thursday, Nintendo offers new digital content for Wii U and 3DS through its eShop. This week's highlights include a new Virtual Console release on each platform: Mighty Bomb Jack (Wii U) and Life Force (3DS).

Wii U

  • Mighty Bomb Jack (NES Virtual Console) - The classic game has you assuming the role of "Jack" as you try and rescue the royal Pamera family from the clutches of the demon Belzebut. Old-school platforming meets item collecting, but not too much collecting because the torture room awaits those who get too greedy.

  • The trial version of Wii Fit U is free for only one more week. You can upgrade to the full version by buying a Fit Meter. Read more info on this promo here.


  • Life Force (NES Virtual Console) - Switch between vertical and horizontal side scrolling while you try to save the galaxy. You'll be able to upgrade your ship with power-ups you grab along the way and if going it alone is too tough, you can invite a friend to help out. You're the galaxy's only hope against Zelos!

  • Shin Megami Tensei 4 is $29 until February 3rd.

  • Fractured Soul is $6 until February 6th.
