This week’s biggest addition to the Nintendo eShop is fairly shocking in its basis, but less so in it’s execution. A modern version of Spin the Bottle, the Wii U’s Spin the Bottle: Bumpie’s Party sees players engage in less sordid affairs than may spring to mind, instead taking part in a series of mini-game challenges.

Also available this week are classic titles from Tecmo Koei Europe and Namco Bandai Games, Romance of the three Kingdoms IV: Wall of Fire and Galaga respectively, as well as some new special offers for Nintendo 3DS. The full details on this week’s new releases follow below and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest Nintendo eShop updates.
