Not one, but two Zelda games!

We've got it all this week: time travel, weather control, bodysuits, robots, and demons. Break out that 3DS, because you're going to be saving the world for quite some time if you pick up both the the Oracle games. There's something for everyone this week. Hopefully Nintendo keeps this download momentum going!

3DS eShop Sales:

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons are both $4.99 (normally $5.99) until June 20.

Wii U eShop Sales:

Just Dance 4 - 30% off until June 4

Toki Tori 2 - 25% off until June 6

Ghosts 'N Goblins and Mega Man X are buy one, get one 50% off. Since Mega Man X is the more expensive of the two, you may want to grab Ghosts 'N Goblins first. This offer ends on June 6 at 9 a.m. PT.

3DS eShop Demos:

Project X Zone: Imperial Demo (Available June 4)

3DS eShop Games:

The Denpa Men 2: Beyond the Waves - $11.99

We know what you want: bodysuits. Say no more, Denpa Men 2: Beyond the Waves is here! Venture forth to save the world with these cute, cuddly little men captured right from the radio waves filling your home. Despite it's goofy demeanor, this is not a game for the faint of heart.

Gummy Bears Mini Golf - $5.99

So, I know what you're thinking: "Why would a gummy bear play mini golf?" Well, there are lots of reasons. For one, he may have a hot date with a lady gummy bear. Or maybe he just likes to relax after a long day of watching his friends being eaten. See? Being a gummy bear is hard. I'll let you ponder that over the 30 holes, four environments, and five games modes featured here.

3DS Virtual Console:

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages - $4.99

Still can't enough time travel in your Zelda games? Oracle of Ages is for you. Tear it up Back to the Future style in the land of Labrynna, and be sure to pick up the sister game, Oracle of Season, to unlock all the extra content the game has to offer.

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons - $4.99

Time travel not your thing? Well then how about harnessing the power of nature to change the world at your fancy. Enter the dying world of Holodrum and put a stop to the evil forces once and for all with trees and leaves. Or your sword, that's pretty effective too.

Wii U Virtual Console:

Mega Man X - $7.99

Dr.Wily is so last century. Mega Man X broke the mold for Mega Man games, taking place hundreds of years after the death of Dr.Light. X, his final creation, is discovered and he's freaking awesome. Go smash some bad guys, get some new powers, and track down those missing armor pieces. You won't regret it.

Ghosts 'N Goblins - $4.99

If you've never thrown a controller in frustration and feel like you're missing out, then get up from the computer and buy this game immediately! In Sir Arthur's first adventure you'll find yourself fighting fits of rage as well as demons to save your girlfriend from the big blue furry hands of Satan himself.

Anyone else not seeing the X Zone demo on the eShop?  Not sure if I'm doing something wrong, or if it's not actually available.

It is available on Tuesday June 4 for some reason.

I was curious about the Just Dance 4 price. I looked it up on Nintendo.com and it says $35 so is that normally $50 and 30% off to get to $35 or is it normally $35 and 30% off makes it $24.50?

I'm not 100% sure, but I think it's $35 on sale (so $50 normally).

Am I crazy, or wasn't there supposed to be some sort of discount for purchasing both Zeldas? Maybe that was Japan only. Or mere wishful thinking.

Edit: Ah, I see, they're on sale for a buck less each until the 20th. Like it said in article. I r smart.

Will be getting both zeldas shortly.  It is directly due to the eShop's sales on both systems that I have been buying way more digital software.  I hope this is working well for Nintendo.

I believe Gamestop has Just Dance 4 for $20 right now.

I picked up both Oracle games today and have played 'Ages' for about 2 hours or so. I'm enjoying it so far, although some of the music has been a little irritating. The game has started to open up a little and I now have the ability to activate portals between the different eras, which is pretty neat.

If anyone besides me was wondering - yes, the passwords from the GBC games work just fine in the VC version. :D

I've never actually played the Oracle games, so I've been eagerly awaiting their release!

Pixelated PixiesJune 02, 2013

In 'Ages' I have just made it to the Crescent Island section. Changing equipment was already pretty tedious but having to go back to the shop every 5 minutes to swap out items is so incredibly boring. It's an absolutely terrible section of what has thus far been a pretty enjoyable game.
