If you thought that the eShop wasn’t providing enough games before, well, it’s about to get a bit crowded. There are now more games than you have thumbs to play.

In the next coming days there will be a few new Wii U titles hitting both retail and the eShop. Games like Need for Speed U and LEGO City Undercover will be gracing the Nintendo console. Need more? The hunt is on for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Stay tuned for the GAMINGtruth review of the creature slayer we will have you covered come launch.

Now you can write until your little fingers get tired of your bitty stylus. What else are you going to do besides avoiding a mild heatstroke?

If it’s discounts you are searching for, look no further. Well, unless you aren’t looking to challenge your brain. Then you might as well go play your little sister at checkers again. Yeah, its okay you lost. Really, it is.

The game features a fast-paced puzzle environment that you’d expect from something like Tetris, but turbo charged…while flying through corridors. The game is based around the Aztecs, an earlier Mexican culture. There’s no time for a history lesson here, but if you can navigate this game and its levels, an internet self-taught lesson should be no problem.

The most recent Nintendo Direct Feed announced quite a few titles coming to digital download. One just happen to be a beat-driven action title. What better way to slay than in perfect harmony?

Players take on the role of Tempo in a 2D side-scrolling beat-driven adventure. Hit enemies and objects in sync (not the boy band from the ’90s) with the music. The game automatically scrolls through, so make sure your instincts and reaction time is in tune. Get it? Tune. Maybe you could cheat and use an Auto-Tuner?! Okay, I’m done.

The demo launches this week in the eShop. If the developer sounds familiar then you’ve recognized the company behind a many Pokémon titles, including the upcoming Pokémon X and Y. Fear not, we’ve got you covered with the official review come launch. Ta-da!

Everyone’s favorite boxing game makes a return. Well, almost. For those who played the original, we know it as Mike Tyson’s Punch OUT!! However, if you were to take a gander at ye’ old boxer’s history, you might wonder why a name change was introduced.

The game features many of the competitors seen in later Punch OUT!! titles. Take on legends like the “Bald Bull” and avoid his charge. Jump into the classic on your Wii U. Just be careful, many sessions of the game have caused many frustrating controller throws. We wouldn’t want that to happen to something as expensive as your Wii U GamePad now, do Wii?

During last year’s E3, we weren’t quite sure where the realm of indie titles were going to land when it came to the, then rumored, Wii U. There wasn’t much noise about indie games until a little birdie started flapping its wings. The game that emerged was Chasing Aurora.

The game primarily focuses on its multiplayer aspect. The local-only play does deliver fun for families and groups of friends. The game now has a demo in the eShop so that you can take a test flight before you drop the feathers for the full experience. The game features a nifty art style and an illuminating color scheme. Click here for our full review.

Other honorable mentions include Rayman Origins (Nintendo 3DS eShop), Mega Man 3 (Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console), Reel Fishing Paradise 3D (Nintendo 3DS eShop), Forgotten Legions (Nintendo 3DS eShop/ DSi Shop) and Goony (Nintendo 3DS eShop / DSi Shop).

Quick, to the eShop! is your one stop shop for the weekly rundown of Nintendo downloadable titles.
