Nintendo eShop Update – Cars 3: Driven to Win, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

Nintendo_eShop_logoThere are a handful of new games hitting the trio of Nintendo platforms this week, including the well-timed Cars 3: Driven to Win for the Switch and Wii U (to coincide with the movie’s 6/16 release), Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, Anime Workshop and a few TurboGrafx-16 Virtual Console Wii U titles.

With the E3 coming up quick, we didn’t expect anything too crazy to be honest, but the selection isn’t half bad.

Read on.

  • Fire Emblem Heroes ? Tempest Trials ? Running until June 21 at 11:59 p.m. PT, this special event introduces a series of maps you must fight your way through from beginning to end. Gather your strongest allies and challenge your way to the final map! If all of the allies on your team are defeated, you can immediately make a new team and try the map again. However, defeated allies cannot be used again until the final map is cleared, or until all your teams are defeated and you attempt a new trial. During this time, there will also be quests related to Tempest Trials. Also, to celebrate this new event, a new Xenologue Map has been added. Available on App Store and Google Play, this mobile application is free-to-start and offers some optional in-app purchases. For more information, visit
