Nintendo Downloads – February 4, 2016

Starring the walking dead and heavily muscled fish.

The shortest of months kicks off for North America with a light round of new releases. The big releases for the Wii U are the intriguing 3D platformer FreezeME, which has a good launch discount and features an attempt to save the dogs of the world from an evil fat cat. If you prefer your adventures aquatic, check out Shütshimi, which crosses steroids (allegedly), fish and bullet hell with WarioWare. (It makes sense in context.)

Those who braved the Wii U RPG Alphadia Genesis take note; a successor is launching this week on the 3DS. Simply called Alphadia, it takes place roughly a century after the Wii U game but may have snuck an immortal in. The Wii U Virtual Console release was revealed already with Resident Evil 4 (Wii Edition). Though really, you’re probably cashing in for the Smash DLC anyway.

In Europe, you can experience The Legend of Legacy as the 3DS RPG storm continues, or you can take off into space with Super Mario Galaxy. Really, Europe’s picking up a lot of eShop releases from North America, from the recent in Joe’s Diner, to… not so much in Glory of Generals: The Pacific.

FreezeMe looks like a surprisingly competent SM64 knockoff, albeit a little generic.  Does anyone know anything about this game?  I can't seem to find many reviews except on Steam.

There was a thread somewhere here on this very site where the developer came to show it off. I read about it there and downloaded the demo. It was shit then but it might be better now.
