Nintendo has updated their digital store with new additions for the Wii U and 3DS for the week of July 2, 2015. Below is a list of new releases and sales.

Wii U

  • Roving Rogue
    “What comes after The End? That’s the question that has dogged humankind’s greatest thinkers for millennia. Where do we go? What happens? Who will be there? The answers are: ‘a crumbling castle,’ ‘you run and teleport’ and ‘steadfast knights, goblin archers, obsessed ghosts, demented wizards and other dangerous foes.’ In Roving Rogue, the multiplayer platforming adventure on the Wii U system, the end is the beginning.”

Then take on each challenge one by one to earn medals. Learn to master the controls, make good use of the first person camera view and test your skills across three difficulty modes. Good luck pilot!”
