European Download 24/08/17 – Pokémon Discounts, Pokkén Demo and More

The eShop is gearing up for a lot of Pokémon next month, with sizeable discounts on the 3DS Virtual Console releases of Red, Blue and Yellow; and the Pokkén Tournament DX demo on Switch that dropped today. The Game Boy titles drop 36% percent to £5.75 / €6.39 granted you have a Nintendo Account linked, otherwise the discount’s a tad smaller. The Pokkén demo lets you play as Pikachu, Charizard and Empoleon and supports local multiplayer (on a single screen). Although it can only be played 15 times, you can get around this by deleting and redownloading it unlike restricted use 3DS demos.

This week another retail game comes out in the form of Minecraft: Story Mode – The Complete Adventure. ‘Metroidvania’ indie hit forma.8 debuts on switch at £8.99 / €9.99 and it’s Wii U counterpart has also dropped to that price. On another Wii U note, Final Soldier (VC PC Engine) and Soldier Blade (VC TurboGrafx-16) have released at £6.29 / €6.99 and £5.39 / €5.99 respectively.

And finally, Piczle Lines DX releases at £13.99 / €14.99 and another member of the ACA NEOGEO range – PUZZLED – comes at the standard price of £6.29 / €6.99. While four sets of DLC for RPG Maker Fes come at £0.89 / €0.99 a piece. And in case you forgot, there’s another Testpunch for ARMS starting tomorrow (16:00 GMT) and ending on Sunday (21:00 GMT) so don’t forget to download it if you’re interested!

PayPal Comes to Nintendo Switch

It seems making payments on the Nintendo eShop are becoming a little easier. Users have recently reported that an option for PayPal is now appearing when purchasing games on the Nintendo Switch eShop. The option initially rolled out in Japan, but it should also be available in Europe and North America now too!

Not only does this generally make payments easier, but it supposedly also opens up a better option for purchasing games from other regions as PayPal is more flexible with international payments.

What do you think of the new payment option? Tell us in the comments below!
