eBASEBALL Powerful Pro Yakyuu 2020

Nintendo eShop Update

This week’s full Japanese Nintendo eShop update with almost 20 new games, a Root Film demo, Jump Force preload, plus much more…

Select highlights

The highlight of this week is eBASEBALL Powerful Pro Yakyuu 2020 from Konami, which features up to 4-player co-op play with friends and family, and includes several game modes where you can manage a high school baseball team right through to your favourite team from the Nippon Professional Baseball Organization. An eSports tournament mode is also included and the game even boasts an official Tokyo 2020 Olympics license. The game is available in standard and “Powerful” editions.

Also releasing this week sees the open world mystery adventure game Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing In Disguise, which this time is set in a small town in New Orleans, and once again sees York and Zach try and solve a mysterious serial murder case. Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 looks like being another highlight, and is again supervised by Koji Igarashi, with three new playable characters added to the mix, and 2-player local co-op action in this 2D 8-bit style action platformer.

Games available for preload this week include JUMP FORCE DELUXE EDITION which requires 9.7 MB and supports English, Root Film which is available at 20% off and requires 4.0 GB with a demo also available, and SAMURAI SPIRITS NEOGEO COLLECTION which is 10% off and surprisingly requires a hefty 6.9 GB.
